Arc System Works is excited to announce the release of the newest playable DLC character, Asuka R♯, in Season 2 of Guilty Gear -Strive- on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Steam®, Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, & Windows platforms. Asuka R♯ is available both as a purchasable DLC ($6.99) and for players who purchase Season Pass 2 ($24.99).

In hopes of bringing peace to Earth, Asuka R♯ stands among the highest capable magic wielders. As both a scientist and a master of magic, some would call him a genius. While intellectually unparalleled, he severely lacks stamina, with the slightest exercise tiring him out. As he continues to transmit “clear numbers” from space, he often finds himself involved in discord, although he is still found to be polite and humble. Resting at the pinnacle of high magical capabilities, he is a highly technical character, wielding 26 types of Spells with various effects beneficial for battle.

Today also sees the announcement of the new battle stage, Tír na nÓg. After becoming an abandoned space colony, this unique home was created by humankind to survive in outer space. This stage houses various items reflecting its current residents, from a giant telescope to a Japanese-style garden.

In addition, Arc System Works is excited to announce new color packs celebrating the 25th anniversary of Guilty Gear. This includes the Guilty Gear 25th Anniversary Appreciation Color and the Guilty Gear 25th Anniversary Colors. These packs are available for every currently released character, adding new colors. The Appreciation Color is available to download free of charge, so be sure to pick it up!

Guilty Gear -Strive- (Standard Edition $39.99) is available for Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, Steam, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. As the latest entry in the cutting edge Guilty Gear series, the game includes refined gameplay mechanics, stunning animation, a roster of unique characters, rollback netcode for smooth online matches, and cross-platform play. Season Pass 2 ($24.99) has introduced four playable characters (Bridget, Sin Kiske, “Bedman?”, and Asuka R♯); two stages (“Fairy's Forest Factory” and Tír na nÓg!); and Guilty Gear -Strive- Additional Colors #2.
