Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R Coming to US Vita Tomorrow
How did we miss this one?
Unlike Atelier Totori‘s release on the PlayStation Vita, we at least caught this bit of news before the game came out. Guilty Gear is a name that all fighting game fans should be very familiar with, even if it’s just for it’s “more confusing than Street Fighter” naming structure. The game we’re receiving this time is, and it’s a mouthful, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R (or, if you’re a true sadist, GGXXACPR), the third iteration of the fifth version of the third Guilty Gear game, Guilty Gear XX: The Midnight Carnival.
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is a download-exclusive release for the system, and features re-balanced characters and movesets, making previously “banned from tournament” secret characters like Justice and Kliff on equal playing fields with the rest of the cast. Those wondering how the previous 4:3 game will work on the widescreen Vita screen need not worry, as Arc System Works has kept the game in its original aspect ratio, padding the sides out with stylized artwork.
Unconfirmed sources are reporting the game at $14.99, but we’ve reached out to Arc System Works to verify this information and will report our findings as they come in.
