Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is coming to Nintendo Switch


New lease of life for last-gen fighter

At the Nexon Developer's Conference in South Korea, developer Arc System Works announced that their classic anime fighter Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is to be reborn on the Nintendo Switch.

GGXX A Plus R originally launched in Japanese arcades back in 2013, before eventually being ported to the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and PS Vita. It was the final game of the XX series, featuring one last overhaul and re-balance of the game's roster, HUD and battle mechanics.

No further information was revealed at the conference, so we don't have a launch date, or any announcement of a worldwide release. In a nice tribute, the Switch release will include the Korean-exclusive soundtrack of Guilty Gear XX #Reload, which was composed by musician Shin Hae-chul, who passed away in 2014.
