PQube is pleased to announce the European release of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. The PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) system and Wii™ version will follow in Q1 2011.
Guilty Gear is the 2D-fighting series developed by Arc System Works, renowned for hi-res graphics, fast, screen filled action and wild heavy metal music inspired characters. Set on a fictional universe where the main characters, called GEARS, were developed as living, biological weapons. Follow the stories of these crazy combatants and dish out more mind-numbing insane combos the series is famous for.
The game that launched a new style of fighting is back with the most complete version ever. There is a ton of new and familiar stuff for fans of the series, which is widely cited as one of the most balanced fighters among its peers.
The Guilty Gear series contains numerous rock and metal music references, both in the game's music and in the names of characters and special attacks. Look out for connections to Guns n’ Roses, Queen and Iron Maiden.
Range of all-new moves, including the Force Break, a special move which consumes 25 per cent of the Tension Gauge when used and Slashback, a form of parrying with reduced block stun. There are even moves which make opponents stick briefly to walls or slide across the floor of a stage!
The return of fan favourites Justice and Kliff Undersn in the cast of 25 playable characters including 2 new characters, A.B.A and Order-Sol who have never been seen outside of Japan. Characters have new moves and an alternate unlockable EX version of each.
This classic fighting system returns along with new stages, characters, graphics, voices and the ability to create matches between old and new characters in the Generations Mode.
Complete Series Storey Mode is created both for those new to Guilty Gear and hardcore fans. Discover the back story to all of your favourite characters in the Guilty Gear mythology, with fully voiced dialogue.
