The gender of the struggle is in a state that is hardly improved, with proposals for all tastes. After the irruption not as resounding as we expected from Street Fighter V. He knew how to correct a large part of his mistakes, such as online performance or offline content. But later titles of unquestionable quality would arrive from the best studies of the Genre: Dragon Ball FighterZ , Injustice 2 , The King of Fighters XIV , Tekken 7 , Soul Calibur 6 or the recent Mortal Kombat 11 complete an unsurpassed catalog.
But there is more, and the fighting games do not end this year with the game of Netherrealm. And at the hands of Japanese studios. We expect at least five more games that are worth paying attention to. These are:
Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary
In a year full of classic collections, Guilty Gear‘s is the reference for fans of the fight. Which includes the two most important deliveries of the franchise so far. One of them is Guilty Gear (1998), which is only the first one and was released exclusively on PlayStation. Narrating the war between humans and weapons created as a result of the fusion between human and animal DNA. Something that did not serve but as an excuse for a classic 2 vs. 2 gameplay in which the special movements were only the beginning. Despite having a squad of only ten playable characters. The good work of Arc System Works was seen with innovative mechanics such as Instant Kill.
It will not be the only novelty regarding this franchise. Since SNK has also announced 3 editions of Neo Geo Mini themed and a new compilation with up to six deliveries. SNK will bring back another of its star franchises. In this fighting games, such as Samurai Shodown, surely the fighting game that popularized the fighting with weapons . So far it has 16 confirmed characters -to which 4 will be added via DLC. And the presence of developers of the creative team of KOF XIV suggests that the Japanese company this time will succeed with this license.
Granblue Fantasy: Versus
This is probably not the most popular license for the public. But the name of Arc System Works is a guarantee of quality. At the moment it has seven confirmed characters. Which have an obvious resemblance. But according to ASW they will have sufficient differentiation in terms of mechanics. So that we feel that there is variety in this regard. As the studio itself has stated, it will have a playability that fans of its games will like both the Granblue Fantasy saga.
Which suggests that it will not be as demanding as most of its proposals. It should be noted that at the end of this month it will have a beta in which it is already possible to register through this link.
That it will not be the only game based on this license. Since a mobile game will also arrive and Granblue Fantasy: Relink . That was going to be developed by Platinum Games but that finally happened to be in charge of the usual study.
Million Arthur: Arcana Blood
Although it will have a reduced a priori template, there will be up to 31 support characters in which to choose up to a maximum of three. In order to grant variety to the formula and encourage the player to experiment with different combinations. The biggest questions lie in its content, since for now there are only three game modes guaranteed. A story mode that, yes, promises to be extensive, a practical mode and an offline and online versus with rooms for up to 6 players.
Kill la Kill: IF
Another anime that will have its corresponding adaptation to the video game is Kill la Kill , also from the hands of the ubiquitous Arc System Works.
