Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works have announced that Guilty Gear Strive will release in EMEA countries and Asia (except South Korea and Japan). The partnership confirms the link between the two publishers, after the fruitful collaboration for the acclaimed DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ. Guilty Gear Strive will be available by the end of 2020 for PlayStation 4.
It is a new title of the Guilty Gear series, which will take the franchise to new levels thanks to a renewed gameplay and an updated design, created by the main development team, already known for its previous titles.
“We are pleased to announce that Bandai Namco Entertainment will be distributing the latest title in the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear Strive. I am surprised that the chit-chat I have exchanged with Harada-san a few years ago has come to fruition,” commented Daisuke Ishiwatari, General Director of the Guilty Gear series. “I wish this partnership will bring new joy to more users in Europe and Asia. We are working hard with Bandai Namco Entertainment to get people in Europe and Asia to play Guilty Gear more than ever before. Please look forward to it!”
“I have always been thinking that it would be great to partner with ARC SYSTEM WORKS, and I’m happy we were able to push this forward. We wish to further enhance and promote the fighting game community together,” added Katsuhiro Harada, General Producer of Bandai Namco. “The continued collaboration between the two means we can bring more exciting games to every dojo around the world,”
A closed beta of Guilty Gear Strive will be held from 16 to 19 April 2020 and will allow you to try both online games and VS COM mode, giving the opportunity to impersonate Sol, Ky, Chipp, Axl, Potemkin, May and Faust.
Guilty Gear Strive will be available from 2020 on PS4.
