Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R Summary
Heaven or Hell, let’s rock!
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is a 2D fighting game developed by ArcSystemWorks. This legendary fighting series has been re-released on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and more. Despite being re-published on September 12th, 2012, this fighting game still holds up to many of the more modern titles. Featuring iconic charcters like Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R also introduce fan favorites like Bridget, Slayer, and I-no.
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R Premise
Following the events of Guilty Gear X, the mysterious I-No has been stirring up trouble amognst the main cast. The Dolphin Pirates’ ship, the May Ship, was attacked by her, causing the Half Gear Dizzy to be thrown overboard. What’s more, she also paid visits to others, and they are given deliberate and often misleading information. Even more strange, the golden boy of the Holy Order, Ky Kiske, has found a mysterious organization making robotic clones of him.
But there’s more than just robotic doppelgangers in this game, a tale of vengence continues with the assassin Millia, who focuses on targeting Eddie. All the while, the smooth and sauve vampire Slayer watches events unfold, giving advice as he can. Oh, and the kung fu waitress Jam’s restruant has also burned down, and now she needs Dizzy’s bounty money to repair it.
I know that was quite a lot, but keep in mind, every fighter in the cast has their own personal narrative, which the player can see when they go through Arcade mode.
As such, each character has their own personal premise, and its hard to talk about the story as a whole. Unless of course you want five long paragraphs about the history of Guilty Gear, but if you’re looking for a more streamlined narrative, there is always Guilty Gear Xrd and its sequels.
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R Main Characters
Fair warning, there is quite a lot of characters, as expected of a fighting game, but here we go!
- Sol Badguy. Despite the name, he’s the hero of the tale. Sort of. Sol Badguy is arguably the world’s most powerful man, and it is he who wields the Fireseal. He’s also a mechanic, and a big fan of Queen (yes, the rock band).
- Jam. Jam is a martial artist who is also an aspiring chef. Sadly, her restaurant got burnt down, and now she needs money to repair it.
- Ky Kiske. The lighting commanding commander of the Holy Knights. Ky is the second face of the game alongside Sol.
- Baiken. The one-armed, one-eyed samurai from Japan, Baiken is notable for her deadpan taunts and the fact she has a variety of hidden weapons up her missing arm.
- Chipp. A former mafia member turned wanna-be ninja (Guilty Gear is….weird), Chipp is brainwashed this time around, but hopefully, someone will knock some sense into him!
- Millia. Full name: Millia Rage. A former member of the Assassin Guild, a spell has been cast upon her hair, letting her turn it into a lethal weapon.
- Slayer. A possible shout-out to Buff the Vampire Slayer. Slayer, the character, is a fairly helpful vampire, and devoted to his wife (who could probably kill him).
- Faust. There are no bargains with this guy. If you’re on his operating table, then prepare for bushy eyebrows….and a clean bill of health!
Even more characters!
- Order-Sol. The past version of Sol Badguy, back when he worked with the Order of Holy Knights. Kind of a jerk.
- Dizzy. The heroine of the series is a Gear with an angel and devil sitting on her shoulders (literally).
- Johnny. The shirtless master of the Dolphin Pirates. Johnny is one cool cat, and is notable for possessing no magical powers, just a quick tongue and a quicker blade.
- Testament. A scythe wielder who was once Kliff’s adopted child. Now, they seek their way.
- Potemkin. A musclebound writer who helped overthrow a corrupt government.
- May. A small girl who casually swings around an anchor that’s bigger than she is. Has a major crush on Johnny.
- ABA. A homunculus (an artificial human) was created in a mansion. Only appears in this game.
- Venom. An assassin with a pool clue (the billard’s stick), but be careful! Just because he looks a bit silly, that doesn’t mean you can underestimate him.
And a few more for good measure
- Bridget. A young girl from a small village wields a yo-yo in battle and works as a bounty hunter.
- I-No. The resident evil henchwoman is scary as hell.
- Axl. A British time traveler (no, not Doctor Who), he searches for a way back to his timeline, and back to his beloved girlfriend.
- Eddie. Once a no-name assassin, he made a contract with a shadow to become something more. But this contract had a cost, and now, he will never see it again.
- Anji. Arguably the most sane man on the roster, one of the few Japanese natives left in the world.
- Zappa. A, supposedly, normal man who finds himself possessed by several spirits.
- Robo-Ky. A robotic clone of Ky! Just when you think this series can’t get any weirder.
- Justice. The Second Gear, and the one who nearly killed mankind. Also Sol’s former girlfriend. It’s complicated.
- Kliff. An old man with an absurdly large cleaver of a sword. The former leader of the Scared Knights (which Ky currently leads, and Sol used to be a part of.)
