Guilty Gear Strive coming to PS5 and PC, Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki revealed



The biggest news from this morning's Japan Fighting Game Publisher Roundtable was definitely reserved for Arc System Works and its lovely-looking anime fighter Guilty Gear Strive. Not only did the developer reveal classic and brand new roster additions, but it also announced that GG Strive will be launching spring 2021 on PS4, PS5, PC, and in arcades.

Returning to the fight is the domineering form of political heavyweight Leo Whitefang. Debuting in Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, Whitefang is one of the three Allied Kings of Illyan, and holds governance over Europe, Oceania, and The Middle East. As dangerous on the battlefield as he is in parliament, Whitefang lays waste to his opponents with two heavy-duty gauntlet swords, raining down blows via meaty left-right hook combinations. Incidentally, Whitefang also possesses the greatest coat known to man.

The second reveal introduces brand new character Nagoriyuki. Despite his traditional samurai appearance and fighting style, the mysterious newcomer is actually a vampire, and combines exquisite swordsmanship with the ability to chow down on foes when he gets a bit peckish. Of note, the trailer sees Nagoriyuki drawing his opponent's blood toward him, suggesting some form of buff or healing mechanic. More details will be revealed about this Creature of the Night very soon.

Guilty Gear Strive launches spring 2021 for PS4, PS5, PC, and in Japanese arcades.
