Guilty Gear 2: Overture demo is up on Xbox Live Japan

You can bitch all you want about Guilty Gear 2: Overture going the action brawler/strategy route, but you know you still want to play it. Unlike Capcom, Arc System Works can still play the spin-off card a few more times without harm.

Crafty, in-the-know gamers can play the demo right now, as it is up on Japan’s Xbox Live as a 717mb download. So far, this is a Japan-only demo, but there are ways to get it. 

The information (Japanese) given by Major Nelson strongly points to this demo being the same thing we played on the Tokyo Game Show floor, which allowed only the tutorial and VS CPU modes to be played. If that’s the case, gamers won’t be able to get their hands on the real meat of the game, and I can safely say that you’re not missing much.

Japan is seeing a November 29th release date, though no date has been given for a North American release.
