Guilty Gear XX Access Core Plus R is now finally available for PsVita. The game is the latest available revision of Guilty Gear XX, the 2D fighting game created by Arc System Works a few years ago: the game features a new story mode continuing from where the original Guilty Gear XX ended, the return of Kliff and Justice, a new Mission mode, an enhanced Survival Mode with level up features and some general balancing tweaks mostly regarding the properties of existing special moves. The fighting system, however, doesn’t feature any prominent change.
The trailer announcing the game on PsVita also revealed that the game would have an online play mode. However it looks like the trailer was wrong because there’s no way to play against other players online: many have voiced their complaints on the developer’s official Twitter account.
Arc System Works has issued a statement saying that Online Play was never meant to be included in the game: the previous trailer has also been removed since Arc System Works stated that the trailer has been badly translated and led to confusion.
This is truly a shame because some gamer have been fooled by some inaccurate information: if you were looking to get the game to play it online you may want to reconsider your purchase.
