Bandai Namco Entertainment has secured the rights to publish the upcoming fighting game Guilty Gear -Strive- to Europe and Asia (except South Korea and Japan).
There will also be held an closed-beta very soon, but sadly the registration for that is now closed. The closed beta test for Guilty Gear -Strive- will run from April 16 to April 19, 2020. Both Online Match play and VS COM will be available in the beta and participants will be able to play with Sol, Ky, Chipp, Axl, Potemkin, May, and Faust.
“We are pleased to announce that BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT will be distributing the latest title in the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear -Strive-. I am surprised that the chit-chat I have exchanged with Harada-san a few years ago has come to fruition. I wish this partnership will bring new joy to more users in Europe and Asia. We are working hard with BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT to get people in Europe and Asia to play Guilty Gear more than ever before. Please look forward to it!” – Daisuke Ishiwatari, General Director of Guilty Gear Series
“I have always been thinking that it would be great to partner with ARC SYSTEM WORKS, and I’m happy we were able to push this forward. We wish to further enhance and promote the fighting game community together. The continued collaboration between the two means we can bring more exciting games to every dojo around the world!” – Katsuhiro Harada, BANDAI NAMCO General Producer
Guilty Gear -Strive- is set to release on the PlayStation 4 late 2020.
