To quote: It's been two months since Guacamelee launched on PS3 and PS Vita. Thousands of you have uppercutted, slammed, and derped your way through the evil forces of Calaca onto our leaderboards.

First up: the Identity Swap costumes, starring Juanita or Tostado! (Tostado is PS3 only.)
Juanita wears blue tights held up by a championship belt, and a tank top with a flaming, flying heart logo on it. Tostado (not to be confused with Tostada), wears matching pink shpants and luchador mask, and has dead bandaged-up blue skin.
These two deal extra damage with punches/kicks, but have weaker throws. You'll get a new 'Heroine-ism' trophy when you defeat Calaca with Juanita.
Have you ever wanted to run around wearing a chicken...

33w ago - Project Coordinator Takeshi Yamanaka announced today that Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R arrives on PS Vita tomorrow!
Below are the details, to quote: It was love at first sight. This is my story of how the PS Vita version of Guilty Gear game to life, and why I thought PS Vita and Guilty Gear were a match made in heaven.
When I first opened the the dev unit for the PS Vita, I was seduced by the screen's beauty: high resolution, saturated colors, and the quick response time all contributed to my next thought: "I'm sure 2D fighting games would look beautiful on this baby."
That was when it all began. At the time I was the coordinator and director of BlazBlue, if only by title, so I wasn't directly involved in the development of the PS Vita version; nevertheless, I heard stories from our dev teams and needless to say, they, too were impressed with Vita's performance.
