Although Granblue Fantasy Versus and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle competitors will still be able to earn points for the World Tour, fans of Guilty Gear received some disappointing news. The upcoming addition to the franchise, Guilty Gear Strive, will no longer have a playable demo at the event, and there won’t be any character reveals either. Arc System Work was previously scheduled to unveil a Guilty Gear Strive trailer at Brussels Challenge, but that event was canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus.
[Announcement] The #GuiltyGearStrive trailers that were originally scheduled for Final Round and Brussels Challenge will be merged into one trailer and premiered on the official Arc System Works Youtube channel on March 21st. Stay tuned for the exact time. https://t.co/9wCbdsGFdX pic.twitter.com/SQQjfMnQJf— ArcSystemWorks ➡️ #GuiltyGearStrive available now! (@ArcSystemWorksU) March 10, 2020
