    Arc System Works and PQube have announced Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Edition for the Nintendo Switch. It includes Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. It will launch in spring 2019.

    View the announcement trailer below:


    Here is an overview of each game:

    Guilty Gear:

    In 1998, one game made huge waves within its genre: Guilty Gear for the original PlayStation. Spectacular special moves that brought the console to its limits, a hardrock soundtrack that still has to meet its match, innovative mechanics and unique characters that kicked off an incredibly complex and epic anime story will equally fascinate fighting game fans today, as it did 20 years ago!

    Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R:

    First released in 2008 in Japan, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is the final installment and epitome of the Guilty Gear XX series that polished everything introduced in the 12 previous installments to reach optimal balance. Mechanics like the universal overhead attack “Dust” as well as “Roman Cancel”, which allows players to cancel all kinds of actions and therefore increases their options dramatically, set the bar for the series’ sequel: Guilty Gear Xrd.

    A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012.

    Developer Pixelnicks announced platformer, Eagle Island, is in development for the Nintendo Switch, along with the already announced Windows PC version. The developer is aiming for a simultaneous release in late February or March. 


    Here is an overview of the game:

    xplore the avian world of Eagle Island with Quill and one of his loyal owls, Koji. Discover lush forests, treacherous caverns and uncover the ruins of long lost civilizations. Finally, confront the gargantuan deity, Armaura, in a desperate attempt to rescue Ichiro from her clutches.

    With its falconry-based gameplay within uniquely generated worlds, Eagle Island is set to a beautifully modernized pixel art aesthetic and provides a breath of fresh air to the platforming genre.

    Taking inspiration from the roguelike and metroidvania genres, players of Eagle Island can enjoy either short runs or a longer story based experience.

    • Story, Roguelite and Speedrun modes.
    • Fully procedurally generated worlds.
    • 85 different perk abilities to mix up the gameplay each run.
    • Magical feathers transform your owl into elemental forms.
    • 16 beautiful environments to explore.
    • 12 huge boss battles.

    Quill’s arsenal of solo moves consists simply of running, jumping and the occasional ledge grab – the game keeps to its classic 16-bit inspiration. Launch attacks with Koji in 8 directions using the D-pad-like aiming controls. Hit enemies in quick succession to earn greater rewards from combos. Miss an attack and you’ll be forced to wait longer for Koji to return. If Koji is attacked or captured, Quill will be briefly defenceless and must take evasive action whilst vulnerable!

    Eagle Island was supported by 1,291 backers on Kickstarter.

    Thanks Gematsu.
