Following the new reveal for Guilty Gear -Strive-, Arc System Works sent in an accompanying press release with new information and screenshots.
First of all, we learn that the game isn’t going just for PS4 and PS5, but also for PC via Steam. The release window has also been updated to a slightly more precise “spring” 2021.
I’m not exactly sure why the Steam release was not included in the trailer we just saw, but it’s official, straight from the lion’s mouth.
On top of that, we get to see the first screenshots of the newly-revealed characters, the returning Leo Whitefang and the brand new Nagoriyuki.
You can check out the full gallery below.
The press release also includes an official description for both characters.
Nagoriyuki is the newest addition to the Guilty Gear universe. A vampire with a number of unique and powerful abilities, he wields a huge sword with impressive skill in battle and slashes at his enemies with punishing blows. Stay tuned for more info about this mysterious figure!
Leo is one of the three “Allied Kings” of the Allied Kingdom of Illyria, and is responsible for the governing of Europe, the Middle East, and Oceania. He is also an accomplished warrior in his own right, with a relentless fighting style.
On top of this, we also get the reveal of ArcRevo Online, which will start in October in North America and Japan.
It will feature BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Granblue Fantasy: Versus, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, BlazBlue CentralFiction, and Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [cl-r].
