Today’s Nintendo eShop news: GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R announced for the Nintendo Switch, but also…

  • Death Road to Canada
  • Nintendo eShop Highlights
  • Cast of the Seven Godsends
  • Yono and the Celestial Elephant


Last week, we learned that Arc System Works was bringing to the GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R . Following the announcement at the developers conference in South Korea, the publisher sent a press release with additional details about the game, that will be available exclusively via the Nintendo eShop.

First released on Arcade back in 2006, GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R will be the very first Guilty Gear game to be released on Nintendo Switch. Here’s the list of key features:

  • Full 25 character cast! Accent Core Plus marked the return of fan favorites Kliff Undersn and Justice, rounding out the cast of 25 playable characters. And in the Plus R version (this one!), they, alongside everyone else, have been fine-tuned for more competitive play!
  • Modes by the Bucketload! All-time series favorite modes are back: Survival, M.O.M., Mission, and Training Modes.
  • Art! Unlock over 100 artist illustrations in Gallery mode.
  • So Metal! The game features the Korean soundtrack, composed and contributed to the 2003 title ”GUILTY GEAR XX #RELOAD,” by renowned Korean rock artist Shin Hae Chul.
  • Online Multiplayer! Go up against your friends (or enemies, or strangers) in Ranked or Player matches, using the magic of the internet. Ranked matches track your wins, while Player matches don’t — so just have fun!

Finally, here’s a few pictures:
