But Guilty Gear Strive takes this to a whole new level, with the character models and stages undoubtedly the best the Yokohama-based fighting specialists have ever created.
That’s not all though – one thing that has gotten fans excited is the way Guilty Gear Strive blends stylish animations into gameplay.
This includes lush impact animations when certain special moves are performed, or cinematic-like scenes during stage transitions where the camera swoops dramatically.
The staggering visual fidelity means it’s like you’re controlling a fight scene from your favourite anime ever.
The new Guilty Gear game was first announced back at EVO 2019, with further trailers and a recent closed beta test only building anticipation more.
The slick-looking fighting game had been pencilled in for a release date during 2020, and is a PS4 console exclusive.
But now it has been announced the coronavirus pandemic has pushed the release date back to early 2021.
