Arc System Works began streaming a new trailer for its upcoming Guilty Gear -Strive- fighting game on Saturday, which reveals the characters Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki. Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe also posted the same trailer on Monday, which confirms the game is getting a release on PlayStation 5 and PC in addition to PlayStation 4.
Arc System Works delayed the release of the game from late 2020 to early 2021 due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the game in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia (except in South Korea and Japan). The game will also have an arcade version through the ALL.Net P-ras MULTI Version 3 service.
Daisuke Ishiwatari is the game's general director, and Akira Katano is directing the game. Previously revealed characters include: Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, May, Axl Low, Chipp Zanuff, Potemkin, Faust, Millia Rage, and Zato-1.
Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, the series' latest entry, was marketed as both a new entry in the series and as a lower-priced online update for Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator. The game launched for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC in May 2017, and also launched in arcades in Japan in the same month.
The original Guilty Gear fighting game debuted on PlayStation on May 14, 1998.
