New Guilty Gear Game Revealed At EVO 2019
The new Guilty Gear is expected sometime next year.
Arc System Works blessed the fighting game community with a brief look at a brand new Guilty Gear game. During EVO 2019, which took place from August 2-4 in Las Vegas, the Japanese developer unveiled Guilty Gear 2020 with a teaser trailer, expected to launch sometime next year for unspecified platforms.
The trailer, below, shows some gorgeous visuals as the fight between series mainstays--Ky Kiske and Sol Badguy--transitions between 2.5D and 3D, and back again. It seems Arc Systems Works is experimenting with new camera systems to make battles more cinematic. Just before the trailer wraps up, we get a glimpse of what seems to be a new character: an African American male with dreadlocks and two katanas. He looks like a cross between Afro Samurai and legendary two-sword samurai Musashi Miyamoto.

No other information about the new fighting game is available. However, Arc System Works' Team Red division is developing the project, with Daisuke Ishiwatari (Sol Badguy's in-game voice actor) leading the charge. The last entry in the long-running fighting game franchise, Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2, launched in May 2017.
Guilty Gear 2020 wasn't the only announcement during the Evolution Championship Series. SNK pulled back the curtain on The King of Fighters XV, which is now in development. SoulCalibur VI will see Cassandra join its roster, with Samurai Shodown's Haohmaru sharpening his sword for Season 2. Though leaked, Street Fighter V will soon get a bevy of DLC characters added to its roster. And one of Arc System Works other fighter games, Dragon Ball FighterZ, has a new character entering the fray soon in the form of Janemba.
