GUILTY GEAR XX ACCENT CORE FOR
THE Wii SHIPS TO RETAILERS NATIONWIDE Heaven or Hell! Let’s Rock!

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."
