1These are the best fighting games you can currently play on PS5

Guilty Gear -Strive- 3

Fighting games are great, though with the PS5 being so new, there aren’t that many that make real use of the hardware just yet.

Never fear, however, because thanks to backwards compatibility, all of those great fighting games previously available on PS4 are also playable on PS5. Even better, they generally look and play better than ever. With so many fighting games playable on PS5 though, you might be wondering which ones are the best. Which are the ones that are actually worth your valuable time and hard-earned money.

Hopefully we can help you with that. We assembled a short list of the best fighting games currently available on PS5. Whether you prefer fighting with weapons rather than fists, or prefer anime-inspired visuals over a more realistic look, there’s something for you here. And of course, we’ll keep it updated over time so you can be sure that the games on this list are always the best that you can get.
