This is technically a new game because they have released another disk for this game but its basically a glorified patch for Guilty Gear Xrd. So if you’re a big fan of Anime Fighting games then this is a no-brainer to buy. Everyone is going to be moving onto the newest version so it makes sense to move along with them.
For me personally, I like a more basic fighting game. Guilty Gear is one of those games where it starts to get a little too complex for me. The combos are very long, the characters are all very different and quite honestly the core game mechanic is, everything is cheap. Every character has unblockables and mix-ups for days and it’s a steep learning curve.
I’ve always liked the more “basic” fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Street Fighter or Killer Instinct. This game is more for the very serious fighting game scene. This will never be a mainstream fighting in American Culture. People who are buying this game are going to tournaments.
