Sin Kiske Guilty Gear Strive DLC

Sin Kiske is the next playable character coming to Guilty Gear Strive as DLC. Arc System Works announced the character’s return as the second character of the Season Pass 2 DLC, after Bridget. Sin joins the roster on November 24, 2022.

Check out the DLC character trailer for Sin Kiske in Guilty Gear Strive below.

Sin Kiske is the son of Guilty Gear OG Ky Kiske and Guilty Gear X heroine Dizzy. Being one-quarter Gear, Sin matured very quickly compared to normal humans. To ensure his safety, and privacy, Ky entrusted his care to Sol Badguy. Taking after his guardian, Sin grew up strong and untamed. Despite having an adult’s physique, he’s still nine years old, giving him an immature mentality. He wields a flag in battle.

Arc System Works also published a “Starter Guide” video to get players acquainted with Sin’s fighting style.

Sin Kiske is a “Rush” character that specializes in overwhelming opponents at close range. Other Rush-type characters in Guilty Gear Strive include Giovanna and I-NO. Sin can deliver powerful follow-up attacks after his special moves to keep up the pressure on an opponent. Those follow-ups use a mechanic called Stamina. Stamina recharges slowly, and is required to trigger the follow-ups. Follow-ups to moves like Beak Driver can maximize Sin’s capabilities and keep him in optimal distance from an opponent. Other follow-ups can push an enemy back, keeping them from retaliating effectively. He also has a powerful R.T.L. move that rockets him forward and allows him to change direction in mid-dash.

The Sin Kiske DLC arrives in Guilty Gear Strive on November 24, 2022. The game is playable on PS4, PS5, and PC. Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions are in development.
