Ultimate Battle Action!
Using the previous installation, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core as the base, players can perform “Gatling combos” by simply pressing attack buttons in sequence; or launch their opponents into mid-air with the overhead “Dust” attack; or cancelling their character’s current motion to allow for more follow-ups with the “Roman Cancel”; keeping everything that makes a Guilty Gear game, while fine-tuning everything to reach optimal balance!
