It was previously announced that the next Guilty Gear Strive character DLC would be slightly delayed until April, but we didn’t know their identity until tonight.
Arc System Works Revealed After Bedman’s Arc World Tour 2022 Finals? (aka Delilah) will be the third DLC character to join the game’s second season.
Delilah from another Strive story expansion joins the list by using her brother’s broken bed frame from the Guilty Gear Xrd series to do most of the fighting for her.
Unlike the original Bedman, Delilah is not tethered to the artifact and can move on her own though she fights alongside the machine that has seen its better days.
We’ve got some familiar moves like the head toss and overhead spin options, but it looks like it’s going to be a bit more gritty compared to its sibling.
Badman? It’s set to release on April 6, 2023, along with the new Fairy’s Forest Factory stage as part of Season Pass 2 for Strive.
At the end of the trailer, ArcSys included a short teaser of the next DLC character coming to Strive in May, and it looks like the time has finally come to see Asuka R. Kreuz in action.
Fans have been waiting to see what Asuka (aka That Man) is capable of as a fighting game character for over 20 years, and although we’ve had to wait longer to get him than initially thought given his role in the story, it appears that Mr. The Magician is only a few months away now.
To finish off the round of announcements tonight, the developers also announced that they’re already working on a third season for Guilty Gear Strive, so the game will continue to be supported until at least 2024.
