The July 31, 2020 Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable has offered an avalanche of new information about both old and new fighting games. Arc System Works said it would be bringing up a new character. Instead, it brought up two and a new platform. A Guilty Gear Strive PS5 version was confirmed, and Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki were the newly revealed fighters.
This isn’t Leo Whitefang’s first rodeo. The Allied Kingdom of Illyria king first appeared in Guilty Gear Xrd Sign. Nagoriyuki is an entirely new character who will make his debut in Guilty Gear Strive. They will join previously revealed fighters like Ramlethal Valentine, Millia Rage, and Zato-1.
Here’s the new trailer that looks at Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki. It also confirmed the Guilty Gear Strive PS5 port at the 2:10 mark.
Finally, there was an update on when the next new Guilty Gear Strive character will be revealed. Arc System Works promised a new trailer will appear in October 2020.
Update: The official website also lists a Guilty Gear Strive PC version that will be available through Steam.
Guilty Gear Strive will come to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and arcades in 2021.
