Guilty Gear Strive brings new characters to the franchise, and the upcoming DLC will bring even more newcomers to the game. Being Arc System Works’ most successful IP, the game has already sold over half a million copies worldwide and keeps attracting new players to both the genre and the franchise. One can thank their outstanding graphics, easy-to-grasp battle systems, and many other design choices that the development team made to attract new players — because their strategy certainly worked.
Now, we are left here to wonder if Guilty Gear Strive will follow the tradition of fighting games and make DLC characters much crazier and more original than those that come with the first version of the game. Are you curious to know who are the new characters will be coming to Guilty Gear Strive? Then check out our list with all currently known DLC characters.
Guilty Gear Strive New Characters
The only new character in Guilty Gear Strive that we know of right now is Goldlewis Dickinson. He’s a big guy who carries a giant coffin, which sounds like another Iron Maiden reference if you ask me. Goldlewis combines set play with power in his unique playstyle. As you can see, hi mains gimmick is the Iron Coffin he carries. It says Area 51 on it, and within the coffin, there is an alien. Considering that he is known as The Cryptid Collector, who knows what else he has stashed away. The alien helps Goldlewis by setting tracking bombs and even attacking the enemy. This character’s design has Guilty Gear and Arc System Works written all over it.
Who Is Next?
Goldlewis Dickinson is just the first DLC character that we are getting this year. We don’t know exactly who is coming next, but we know it is a character that has appeared in previous games before. Many people are expecting Jam to come back to the game, but there’s no confirmation of it so far. We at least know that after a familiar face, we’re getting another original character. After that, your guess is as good as ours.
