Guilty Gear XX Slash coming to PS2

Sammy's latest arcade 2D fighter battling its way to living rooms in Japan next spring.

Fresh off its arcade debut three months ago, the latest iteration of Guilty Gear is already headed home. According to this week's Famitsu, Sammy's Guilty Gear XX Slash: The Midnight Carnival will arrive on the PlayStation 2 in Japan sometime in spring 2006.

As an upgraded version of Guilty Gear X2 #Reload (which was itself an upgrade to Guilty Gear X2, the Guilty Gear X upgrade), Guilty Gear XX Slash features new moves for some of the characters and overall balance adjustments. The game includes two new fighters: A.B.A., a female character wielding a huge key, and Order Sol, a variation of series protagonist Sol, with a new costume and new moves.

The PS2 Version of Guilty Gear XX Slash will feature a number of now-standard gaming modes for the series, including arcade, M.O.M., mission, and survival modes. The arcade mode lets the player enjoy the game just like the arcades, while M.O.M. is a special mode that lets players rack up points by beating medals out of their opponents. Mission mode gives players specific objectives to complete in each battle, and survival mode lets the player continuously fight against the CPU. There are also gallery and sound modes that let players view unlocked art and listen to stage music, sound effects, and voices.

According to Famitsu, Guilty Gear XX Slash is currently 75 percent complete.

I played ggx2 slash at my arcade (1 out of 3 machines in the country woot!) and its actually a pretty different beast. Ky-kiske kicks alot of ass now if you can believe it! But yeah, i really would like a sequel already.

let's hope to see something new... sammy has been making too much entries in the GG series without putting too much inovation on the new instalments. let's hope this dont happen again

They're doing all these upgrades for the next, and supposedly last, GG game Sammy's going to make. And with all the new moves, reactions, and characters, this can be said it's another GG game.

Why the hell don't they just go to Guilt Gear 3? They don't need to copy Capcoms constant 2 upgrade sequel idea
