Ahead of the fighting game’s closed beta test commencing in only a couple of days time, Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works have announced they will be partnering up to bring Guilty Gear -Strive- to gamers in Europe, South East Asia (ex. South Korea and Japan) and Oceania in late-2020. This continues the partnership between both companies, with the pair collaborating on Dragon Ball FighterZ back in 2018.
Being released exclusively on the PlayStation 4, Guilty Gear -Strive- will serve as the latest instalment in ArcSys’s long-running Guilty Gear franchise. The development team are striving to “bring the franchise to the next level with new gameplay and updated design”.
The upcoming closed beta test will run for a period of four days from 16 April 2020 until 19 April 2020. It will cover both online match and VS Com gameplay, and provide access to seven characters out of the game’s expectedly broad roster.
