Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R unveiled

Heaven or Hell ... Plus R.

Guilty Gear is one of the most renowned fighting game franchises. Its compelling characters, stages, and gameplay have earned the respect of critics and more importantly, fans.

Even when Arc System Works tried to move on with Blazblue, a very successful series in its own right, gamers still clamored for more Guilty Gear. And that's exactly what they're going to get.

An Arcade update for Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus has been officially revealed. The name remains the same with an R added. The update will include major character balance changes. No word on if these updates will be included in the Xbox Live and PSN releases coming this summer.

Here is the official trailer for the the update.

The changelog from the official Guilty Gear website has been posted in Japanese. Dream Maker from the Dustloop forums has translated the list in English as well as some notes from the trailer.
