Did you realize Arc System Works had another fighting franchise? Many new players were probably introduced to them through Blazblue and its various sequels but their last generation darling, Guilty Gear, is about to make a resurgence in a huge way. Announced at the Tokyo Gameshow was a port of the upcoming Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R for the PlayStation Vita.
As Joystiq points out, Accent Core Plus R, shouldn’t be confused with the HD port of the original Accent Core Plus, which is scheduled to hit XBLA/PSN in Japan sometime next month. This next Arcade iteration is powered by SEGA’s new RingEdge 2 board. The original Accent Core was released to home console in 2007 for both PS2 and Wii.
Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus R will be released next year in Japan. No word on a North American release just yet.
