Guilty Gear Spin-Off Side-Scrolling Its Way to DSiWare

Posted by Trevor Chan

A new Chimaki adventure from Arc System Works

Spin-offs by their nature usually offer something recognisable yet in different surroundings, but it seems Arc System Works has taken a very different approach for the Guilty Gear spin-off title it has coming up.

Arc Style: Furo Jump!! Guilty Gear Gaiden!? is a new entry into the side-scrolling platform genre and is a long way from the cult beat 'em ups we may be familiar with when looking back at past releases from the developer; like Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers, and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core.

The game follows the funny-looking little Chimaki character as he attempts to find the secretive hot springs to soothe his backaches. Upon following the directions on a flier, Chimaki sets off to find the advertised springs but it appears his every move is being watched.

The game utilises a two-button control scheme and players must traverse through various baths throughout the world using the Soap Rider vehicle. Using a combination of attacks and jumps, players must gain momentum and build up speed to successfully pass the levels. Standing in your way is Rebel, a mysteriously creature with some beef to settle. Get passed his minions and you might actually make it to the springs.

Arc Style: Furo Jump!! Guilty Gear Gaiden!? hits the Japanese DSi Shop on 1st September and can be downloaded for 500 points. A Flash version of the game can be played on the official website, and some gameplay footage can be seen in the video below.

Weirdness overload. Only a rat-tailing albino starfish could get away with sporting a Hitler moustache. Doubt we'll see this one outside of Japan, but Kappa was pretty strange too and we got that, so who knows.

Whoa. This is usually the sort of thing you'd see on WiiWare. Kinda reminds me of Ufouria.

No Bridget no purchase.

But it's good to see that Sega doesn't own the rights to the franchise.

I have no idea what it is...but oddly, it looks fairly good. I might get it if it come to America.
