Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R update for PSN and XBLA coming next Spring, Justice and Kliff playable in online mode

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • December 17, 2012 at 9:34 a.m. PST
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R update for PSN and XBLA coming next Spring, Justice and Kliff playable in online mode Arc System Works announced that we will be seeing a patch for Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. The update will change the current version of the game into Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R and will be hitting consoles sometime next Spring.

GGXXAC+R is the rebalanced iteration of the 2D fighter and is currently available in arcades. The update will allow players to switch between both versions in the settings menu and will also add Kliff and Justice as playable characters in +R's online mode.

The Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R patch will also come equipped with new achievements / trophies, a new logo and a separate leaderboard for +R specifically. Not only that, Arc System Works will be improving the online experience by speeding up the ranked battle matchmaking, tweaking latency for specific areas and giving players the option of choosing between the player 1 and player 2 sides for online matches.

The current version of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is available on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network and we can expect to see the update that changes the game to +R sometime in the Spring of 2013.

how about adding LOBBIES too? -_- it IS a little frustrating that Blazblue & P4A get lobbies, but the legendary/iconic GG DOESNT? out of the three games, you shouldve worked the hardest on this one imo.

@3

They are adding lobbies. You can find all the changes in the Dustloop AC discussion thread.

They need to show connection bar status of players inside the room.
When hosting there is no way to tell how laggy the other guy is unless you play at least one game.

There is no way to "fix" lag since it is just the connection speed between the two players and there is noway to "fix" that in a fast game that wasn't designed to mask and compensate for lag.

But, they can help the players weed out other players with bad connection though like showing the connection status of other players.
I think some people think the net code is bad but there are just less people playing this game compared to others, so less likely to run into somebody that live near you playing at the same time, especially when everybody is paired up already, being there are no lobby as of now.

Also wouldn't mind paying more. $15 is cheap as hell for one of the most solid fighting games out there, basically play 30 games and you get your money back if you think of 50 cents per game in the arcades. Sometimes I think people are too cheap on buying fighting games. The time you can get out of a fighter is more than any RPG or any other genre anyway. Especially for an established fighter like ggxx.

They have lobbies,they show ping, they have spectator mode when not fighting, lobby rules like loser get kicked out or stays in lobby or winner stays at top or is removed after winning.

Free or paid? Looking forward to it one way or another, however.

I really hope this patch encourages more dedicated GG fans to play this game online because this game is really, really awesome to play. The online needs a bit of a fix to be exceptional for lobby plays and many other things.
