Heaven or Hell! Let's Rock!

Torrance, CA (October 16, 2007) – The newest incarnation of the popular fighting game franchise, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core, ships to retailers nationwide, courtesy of Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products. Developed by Arc System Works, this latest iteration returns with its trademark high-resolution graphics along with an entirely retuned fighting system, new stages, new characters, graphics, voices and the ability to create matches between old and new characters in the Generations Mode.

"Guilty Gear XX Accent Core for the Wii is hardcore 2-D fighting for the masses," said Gail Salamanca, Director of Marketing, Aksys Games. "Having the option to play with the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ is a great way to introduce the casual gamer to a game that is largely considered to be one of the most technical 2-D fighters ever made. That can be quite intimidating to someone who's never played a Guilty Gear game. With the Wii version, users can easily get into the game and start having fun."
