Aksys Games has announced a North American release for the latest entry in Arc System Works' Guilty Gear fighting series, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core. Based on the arcade version of the same name, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core will arrive on PlayStation 2 and Wii later this fall.

Featuring entirely redone voice work and character sprites over past iterations, Accent Core also adds two new characters--A.B.A and Order-Sol-- and three new gameplay mechanics--Force Break, Throw Escape, and Slash Back.

Exclusive to the Wii version are what today's announcement called "waggle controls," allowing players to activate fighting moves by performing gestures with the Wii Remote. The Wii version will also support traditional non-waggle controls through support for GameCube and Wii Classic controllers.

"Accent Core is definitely a game for the elite fighting game connoisseur, with its wickedly fast, technique oriented gameplay," explained Aksys Games producer Michael Manzanares. "Guilty Gear veterans will definitely enjoy finding out all the intricacies of their favorite characters and mastering all the new gameplay enhancements and systems."

Upon its release last month, the Japanese PlayStation 2 version of the game was reported to be extremely buggy. Developer Arc System Works issued an open apology for the issues. Shacknews has sent inquiries to Aksys Games regarding potential improvements for the North American releases.

Update: An Akysys Games representative has confirmed to Shacknews that the North American PS2 edition of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core will address the issues present in the Japanese version.
