Developed by Arc System Works and published by Sammy, Guilty Gear X is the first high-resolution 2D fighter available for the system, featuring sharp, detailed character sprites and backgrounds.
It's been less than a year since Justice, the most powerful Gear ever created was defeated. Their commander destroyed, the threat posed by the Gears was all but over. Without commands, they're barely able to sustain life, let alone attack anything. Needless to say, rumors claiming the emergence of a second Justice are disconcerting. Anxious to avoid the threat these biological weapons pose, a large sum of money is offered to whoever can destroy this new Gear, thereby ending the threat once and for all.
Arcade, Versus, Survival and Training are the seemingly mandatory modes on offer, in addition to a Recording mode which allows players the chance to save their favorite combos to the VMU for posterity. Sixteen playable characters are included, ranging from your standard oafish brutes to small, agile females, and everything in between. Characters can perform a variety of juggles and combination moves as well as one-hit kills and special attacks when the power bar is filled. The VGA Box is also supported facilitating gameplay on a computer monitor instead of a television. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
