Triggerheart Exelica Enhanced coming to PS2 with Faintear playable

If you’re among those to have been disappointed by the news that Triggerheart Exelica was on the list of games Microsoft would be sweeping under the XBLA rug, here’s some sunshine for you. According to a magazine scan spotted … well, somewhere, the game is on its way to PS2 this Winter, with the title Triggerheart Exelica Enhanced.

A translation of the scan doesn’t reveal a hell of a lot regarding what they mean by “Enhanced,” but it does say that the game’s original sassy enemy, Faintear, will now be playable in addition to Exelica and Crueltear. The port will include the standard arcade mode, as well as the story mode that was available on the Dreamcast version but ripped violently from the XBLA game like that dude’s heart in Temple of Doom. Or your own heart that one Valentine’s day. I don’t know, that’s your business, emo kid.

Anyone interested in giving the full game a shot might want to keep an eye out for this one. Personally, I’d import it just for a chance to play as Faintear, how about you?
