A while back, Arc System Works announced that they would have Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus to arcades in a new HD form factor as well as current generation consoles. Now the developer revealed that the arcade update will feature new additions to the existing game.
Now titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, the game is reported to have a balance update as well as new moves for the existing cast of fighters. The game will now be running on Sega's Ringwide hardware instead of usually being on Sega NAOMI.
If you are or will be in Japan in the coming weekend, Accent Core Plus R will be available to play during location tests in Tokyo (Club Sega Akihabara Shinkan), Osaka (Sega Nanban Avion) and Kitakyushu (Hyper Messe). There is no confirmation that if the changes will affect the upcoming downloadable console release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Arc System Works also revealed an official website dedicated to the update but as of this post, it's currently out. For now check out a special video by the developer and a translation of the current balance changes after the jump!
