With the resurgance of the fighting game genre and its fanbase peaking with games stronger, and debatebly, better than ever, it's high time for publishers to take a look back in their catalogs and see which games would be best suited for a re-release on a newer platform.
Ark Systems Works has decided to do just that and take their popular Guilty Gear series, and more specifically the last of its iterations, Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core Plus the XBLA and PSN treatment, only this time with an added online play feature.
I've always been a fan of fighting games but I never was one to get into the finer mechanics of cancels, combos, and all that O-T-G lingo. But the one game that did peak interest more than any other since the original release of Street Fighter 2 was Guilty Gear. And my only wish is that now that Ark System Works has the rights to the series again, they desperately need to develop a whole new entry (something like Guilty Gear 3 would be nice) instead of fine-tuning the same game over and over again.
No word on release date time frame or even pricing, so you'll just have to keep your ears perked.
