As someone who really enjoys fighting games especially 2d fighting games, I am looking forward to giving this BETA a spin run. I feel guilty gear has released some really fun and enjoyable fighting games over the years and really hope that this game doesn’t become an underrated hidden gem this year, so hopefully, the BETA will give people an excuse to run out and test it
