Guilty Gear XX Λ Core, with Λ standing for "Accent", is the third update of Guilty Gear XX and the sixteenth overall installment of the Guilty Gear series.

This version features new character art, new stages (with some taken from Guilty Gear Isuka), and new moves and balancing for all characters. Voices are also re-recorded and there is a new announcer.


Guilty Gear XX Λ Core does not feature a Story Mode, but an update with identical gameplay added a story mode in the form of Guilty Gear XX Λ Core Plus.

Version differences

  • Introduces new a type of special move, Force Breaks, which consumes 25% of the Tension bar when used. Force Breaks use the prior sound effect of Overdrives from the prior games, whereas Overdrives themselves have a new sound effect and startup flash effect.
  • New "hit effects" which carry over to other fighting games:
    • Ground slide: characters can slide along the ground from a hit while almost flat, allowing them to be picked up off the ground with various OTG-pickup moves with no penalty.
    • Wall Stick: characters get slammed and stuck to the wall for a brief moment before dropping down, as opposed to how a wallbounce works.
    • On block, an extra attack level (6) is added for some moves, distinctively-defined by a metallic clanking sound and normally provides notable blockstun.
  • Other new additions also include the "Slashback," a form of parrying with reduced blockstun and negating damage, and throw breaks.
  • Much like in XX Slash, characters gain additional new moves, though some changes from the said prior title are either retweaked or removed.
  • Λ Core features a major aesthetic change: all voices, including that of the announcer, have been re-recorded (or replaced with previously unused samples), and some characters are voiced by new voice actors.
  • Brand new HUD that is a revision of the one from XX Slash.
  • The playable characters' artworks are also redone, though the select portraits and in-battle portraits still use the up-close story mode portraits from the prior XX games.
  • There is a new opening movie and a redesigned menu.
  • Story Mode was removed.
  • Two new music tracks, "Launch Out" and "Keep The Flag Flying", were added.
  • Most of the blood in the game was removed due to censorship. However some characters like Testament and A.B.A still have blood in some of their attacks.
  • Justice and Kliff, deemed illegal by tournament standards, were removed from the roster in the console versions.
  • It now features three gameplay modes per character, based on the Guilty Gear, Guilty Gear X, and Λ Core fighting systems.


  • The original Japanese version has many bugs that were fixed in the American PlayStation 2 release and future versions.[1]
