A lot of us Guilty Gear fans are stoked to see the return of Baiken in Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, and publisher PQube released a new trailer as well as details on the lone samurai.

 

One of the few people of Japanese descent left in the world of Guilty Gear after Japan was almost entirely destroyed in the crusades, Baiken is brash, impulsive, anti-social and motivated by a burning desire for revenge against Gears. She wanders the world looking for signs of That Man, the person she believes responsible for the death of her family and the crippling injuries she sustained as a child.

 

Despite only having one arm, Baiken has incredible skill with her katana and has developed a unique fighting style using a variety of weapons up her sleeve. Her ‘demon tools’ include a mace, cannon, bladed fan, hook, claw and a spear.

 

Baiken has a new trick, with her new projectile, the Suzuran Yashagatana, that shoots a rocket along the ground. She can utilize a Yellow Roman Cancel to use the projectile to cover her approach.

 

In Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2, Baiken is an offensively minded character with limited defensive tools. Her main defensive strategy is her Azami stance, which allows her to counter attacks, both on the ground and in the air.

 

Her mobility is slower, so she spends most her time controlling space with her sword, mace and infamous tatami mat, while trying to corner her opponents and looking for a knockdown opportunity.

 

Baiken shines when she knocks the opponent down, with several options for putting on the pressure and making her opponents crack.

 

Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 releases in Japan on May 25, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game launches in North America and Europe on May 26. The PC version launches on June 1.
