Originally released in 1998, Guilty Gear: The Missing Link introduced the world to an eclectic cast of characters as well as a number of unique game mechanics, like the infamous Instant Kill. Guilty Gear was an ambitious game that broke new ground in many ways and helped establish the air-dasher genre. Although Missing Link is significantly different from the popular sequels that followed—+R, Xrd, and Strive—it laid the core philosophy to which those games adhere to.
Unlockable Characters

To unlock  Testament and  Justice you must defeat each of them respectively in Arcade Mode.

To unlock  Baiken, beat her in Arcade Mode. To reach the Baiken fight, beat Arcade Mode as either  Sol or  Ky without using any continues. After the credits roll, the fight vs Baiken will begin. The player can lose the fight and continue an infinite amount of times.
Playing The Game

Online play with rollback netcode is possible using the Duckstation emulator.

The PC port is still useful for training mode purposes using the training mode enhancements mod. The mod can be found in the Missing Link Discord.

  • The PC port's framerate is tied to the refresh rate of the monitor and thus requires you to limit the game's FPS to 60 in your graphics card control panel.
  • The resolution must be set to a 4:3 resolution with Side Panels turned off or else sprites might not display properly with the training mode mod.
