The best selling 2D fighter series Guilty Gear is releasing their newest installment GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS onto the PSP to commemorate their 10th year anniversary.

The game comes with extra content that makes full use of the handheld system's facilities in addition to the existing elements in the previously released PS2 version. Turn on your network switch and launch the Rank Match mode, the more victories you get, the higher you climb on the rank ladder and the nearer you are to the top, the position of the chief of the Holy Knights.

You don't have to fight alone in this game, form a team of three characters of your choice and battle other people's teams. The rules are simple, just fight until the last member of your opponent's team falls.

Elements of adventure games are added to this version. Depending on what choices you made during the game's scenario, the story of the game changes. More scenarios are added to this game and they are fully voiced.

Other additions to the game system included a mission mode and a survival mode. Once you cleared a stage in the mission mode, you will be rewarded with a CG illustration. In the survival mode, you can strengthen your player characters in a gradual manner before taking on the hard bosses.
