The game involves playing 1 of 2 anthropomorphic fighters to battle against 5 stages of enemy ships. Exelica specializes in wide area attacks, while Crueltear uses concentrated front shots. Players can fire anchors to catch enemy ships, then use the caught unit as a shield or throw it to inflict more damage. Like Zanac, this game dynamically adjusts difficulty based on the player's in-game performance which is called V.B.A.S. (Variable Boss Attack System) here. A PS2 version is titled Trigger Heart Exelica Enhanced. Published by Alchemist, it is going on sale in March 28, 2009, both a Limited Edition and Regular version. The Limited Edition will have a Nendoroid (Exelica) figure made by Good Smile Company. The game added Faintear Imitate and C'r_na characters.

Galaxy Angel II (ギャラクシーエンジェルII ,Gyarakushī Enjeru Tsū) is a sequel to the games, anime, and manga franchise of Galaxy Angel, and is the continuation of BROCCOLI's Project G.A.. It features a brand new cast of Angels called the Rune Angel Troupe, and according to the game Galaxy Angel II Zettai Ryōiki no Tobira, is set 4 years after the end of the previous game, Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers.

In this sequel, due to the development of a method to cross-dimensions at the end of Galaxy Angel Eternal Lovers, a new dimension called NEUE was discovered, which is linked to EDEN through a space called ABSOLUTE, a central hub to which all dimensions are linked. This hub cannot be operated by most people however, and currently, the only person who can is the Moon Angel Troupe's Milfeulle Sakuraba. Since the operation of the hub involves opening gates between different dimensions, those with the ability to do so are called "gate keepers". The new Rune Angel Troupe features Emblem Frames from NEUE and is the successor to the now disbanded Moon Angel Troupe.
