Sammy Europe Ltd. today announced the release of two upcoming action-packed titles in PAL region for Sony PlayStation 2. Guilty Gear X2, the newest sequel in the exceptional 2D anime fighter series, and Galerians: ASH, a third-person 3D action game that continues the sci-fi horror saga that began on the PlayStation, will be available in Spring 2003.

With fan momentum for the Guilty Gear series continuing to dramatically escalate worldwide, Guilty Gear X2 brings the newest and most complete title in the series to European PS2 players. The title combines the traditions that set the fighter apart with new characters, new moves, new animation and bonus features, with improved reaction speed by 50Hz/60Hz option added answering users’ requests. Guilty Gear X2 adds six new characters to the most unique cast ever conceived for a total 20 playable fighters, and delivers new modes like Story, Mission, Medal of Millionaires and Gallery to build on the series story of war between humans and the bio-weapon Gears. Guilty Gear signatures such as amazing character and backdrop animation, super-fast gameplay speed and eye-popping special moves return, as does the brilliant character design of renowned artist Daisuke Ishiwatari.

Galerians: ASH is the third-person 3D action sequel to the classic survival horror game that became a hit on Sony PlayStation. Six years have passed since the epic war between artificial and organic intelligence turned for the better, when Rion defeated the biomechanical Galerians and their genocidal leader, mother computer Dorothy. Now a catastrophic program, launched as Dorothy died, has released a new set of evil Galerians and their powerful leader Ash to fulfill her genocidal dreams. Employing a unique arsenal of psychokinetic attacks, psychic abilities and neural enhancers, Rion must once again fight for human survival. Galerians: ASH delivers extraordinary 3D graphics, heart-pounding action, intense cinematic sequences and vast landscapes set in a frighteningly twisted future world.
