The PS2's hardcore fighting contingent rejoices, as Sammy's revered 2D beat 'em up update arrives courtesy of Zoo Digital.

Loved by hardcore gamers for its frenetic gameplay, substantial depth and lush 2D visuals, the Guilty Gear series has spawned some of the most highly acclaimed beat 'em ups of recent years. This latest iteration of the venerable franchise comes complete with multiple modes, four all-new characters and devastating special moves.

The entire cast of the previous Guilty Gears returns alongside some new faces, making for an impressive total of 23 fighters. A deadly array of special moves is brought to life with some of the most impressive animation seen on PS2 to date, and fiendishly tricky advanced techniques will tax even the most skilled gamers. Fill up the Tension Meter to pull off Faultless Defences, Dead Angle Attacks, and more besides.

Play your way through a compelling Story mode, defeat enemies under certain specified rule sets and conditions in Mission mode, or lay down the gauntlet to a friend in Versus mode, in this challenging - but hugely rewarding - beat 'em up.
