Λ Core is the third revision of the original Guilty Gear X2 fighting game. This edition includes balance changes and a new special move: Force Break. The characters either have new special moves or existing ones upgraded, or turned into a Force Break, which consumes 25% of the tension bar. Other gameplay changes include new moves that throw and hold an opponent against floors or walls, throw breaks, and Slashback a parrying move with reduced block stun. Two characters have been removed: Justice and Kliff.

Unlike the earlier revisions, the graphics and sounds have also been updated. Many of the voices have been re-recorded or replaced, the players' artwork was redone and there are 2 new music tracks. There are 3 fighting systems per character: Guilty Gear, Guilty Gear X, and Λ Core.

PS2 release

The original Japanese PS2 release was plagued by numerous bugs, including easily reproducible crashes, potential memory card corruption, sound problems, and typos. The issues were so bad that Arc System Works released an official statement of apology to their customers. When the next major update of the game, Λ Core Plus, was released, Arc System Works went so far as to put out a so-called "Append Disc" version for those who owned the buggy game, which was sold at a very steep discount: 1980 JPY, or about $20 USD, which was less than half the price of the stand-alone release.

These issues were fixed in subsequent ports and international releases.
