Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is getting an arcade release. ArcSys is saying that this may be not the final release, which actually makes me a bit hopeful.
This release seems to be an HD conversion similar how Arcana Hearts did it, with the side bars on the sides and all. Also, it’s a good call making a digital release on both PSN and XBLA, which most likely means that they’re testing waters if Guilty Gear still sells. They could release Accent Core just as a port and it would be good, but hinting that Accent Core might not be final release causes false wishes for Guilty Gear 3. And I do mean Guilty Gear 3 as a fighting game, not like the one we don’t really want to mention.
I’m pretty sure this release is because the falling sales ArcSys games are having. BlazBlue isn’t really selling as hot as they wished for, even after all the updates and whatnot. Guilty Gear is like a safebutton, as it’ll sell to the fanbase no matter what. We just have to hope that the conversion is not only good, but superb as well. Now I’m having more and more reasons to get a proper arcade stick for PS3.
