Which man? That Man.
Arc System Works has finally lifted the lid on the final Season 2 DLC character headed to the gorgeous scrapper Guilty Gear Strive — And, of no surprise to anybody whatsoever, next week will see the coming of the powerful central figure in the current GG timeline, Asuka R#, more commonly known as “That Man”.
The powerful warrior-sorcerer, whose aim to bring peace and pleasance to Earth led to globe-shattering events of biblical proportions, will bring his ethereal skills to the battlefield on May 25. A new trailer showcases what appears to be one of the most complex and technical fighters in franchise history, (and with GG, that’s really saying something), who is armed with over 20 spells with which to confuse their opponent, control space, defend against attack and, of course, kick a lotta ass.
You can see That Man in action in the preview below. Yikes.
In addition to Asuka R#’s arrival, Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass owners will also receive the new stage Tir Na N0g, as well as two special 25th-anniversary color packs, bringing additional palettes that can be applied to the entire roster of characters. These include a pink-and-white scheme, a neon green-and-white scheme, and finally an orange-and-white scheme. The pink-and-white look will be available to download to all players free of charge.
Finally, Arc System Works confirmed that a third season of content for Guilty Gear Strive is in the works, bringing even more characters, stages, and colors to the hit release. Players can also expect the arrival of the long-long-long awaited update that hopes to bring myriad fixes to the title’s frustrating lobby and online issues.
Guilty Gear Strive is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
