Guilty Gear Strive Is Coming To Arcades--In Japan, At Least
Guilty Gear Strive will let you compete in arcades across Japan.
Guilty Gear Strive has been confirmed for PlayStation 4, but if you're in Japan, you'll also have the option of playing it in an arcade. The arcade release of the game was reported on Arc System Works' website, and was picked up on and translated by Gematsu.
While it's possible that the cabinets will make their way outside of the country, they're bound to be rare--arcades are still fairly common in Tokyo and other areas of Japan. For most players, the PlayStation 4 version will remain the most accessible.
A new trailer for Faust, a returning character first seen in the game's name announcement trailer, has also been revealed. You can watch it below.
A demo of the arcade version will be playable at Japan Amusement Expo 2020 in February; otherwise, a closed beta of the game is coming later this year, although details have not been announced yet.
The new Guilty Gear has been described by the game's general director as "a full-frontal confrontation with the essence of the fighting game genre."
