New Guilty Gear titled Guilty Gear Strive, Faust returns to the roster


The Doctor is In

At the Arc Revo Tour finals this weekend, publisher Arc System Works dropped a new trailer for "New Guilty Gear", officially dubbing the upcoming entry of the anime fighting game series Guilty Gear Strive, (stylised as Guilty Gear -Strive- (with Strive's "IV" denoting the sequel as the franchise's fourth mainline entry.)

The new trailer, which you can check out below, features the re-branding along with a montage of action featuring all of the characters revealed so far, including Chipp Zanuff, Ky Kysike, May, Potemkin, Axl Low and Sol Badguy. The trailer winds up with the return of Faust, one of GG's weirdest and most recognisable fighters.

Originally appearing in the first Guilty Gear title as Dr. Baldhead, the gangly physician lost his mind after a failed surgery and became Faust, typified by his six-foot scalpel, the paper bag he wears on his head, and his dreamlike world-bending abilities. As with many of the characters announced so far, Faust is a series veteran, and thus was expected to be making an appearance in the new title.

The next trailer for Guilty Gear Strive is expected at the Frosty Faustings tournament in January, Guilty Gear Strive is set to launch on PS4 sometime in 2020.
