Sammy Studios today announced that Guilty Gear Isuka, the latest entry in its premier fighting game series, has gone gold and will ship on November 2 for the PlayStation 2. This will be the second title in two months for the series, since the revamped, Xbox Live-enabled Guilty Gear X2 #Reload shipped on September 14 exclusively for the Xbox.
Isuka retains the series' trademark high-res, 2D graphic engine and detailed, over-the-top characters while adding a bevy of new gameplay features. A four-player mode lets a quartet of gamers battle simultaneously, filling the screen with nonstop action. A two-player, side-scrolling game called boost mode, which is reminiscent of Final Fight, is also new to this edition. Additionally, factory mode lets players program their own fighters with all the different moves available to the Guilty Gear roster.
Guilty Gear Isuka is rated "T" for Teen and carries an MSRP of $49.99. For more information on Guilty Gear Isuka, check out GameSpot's import impressions of the game.
