Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Baiken launches

Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Baiken launches in January 2022, the latest post-launch character.

The new Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Baiken launches in January 2022 for Season 1 Pass owners on January 28th and for all other owners on January 31st.

The new battle stage Lap of the Kami will also added on January 28th. The new Lap of the Kami level is a Japanese-style stage based on the theme of “red seals”. In this stage, beings in the form of foxes gather at the shrine from somewhere, change their appearance into priests, and enter the temple one after another. When the priests come out, they have flagpoles and red seals fluttering in their hands.

Furthermore, the new “Combo Maker” mode will be added after the maintenance on January 28. In this mode, you can create your own original sequences of moves and combinations, and show your creations to other players. You can also search for and play sequences created by other players. This is a great way to learn new moves or practice more difficult ones.

A female swordswoman who is a descendant of the Japanese. She is quick-witted and quarrelsome. She is the type of person who takes action before thinking. She is straightforward about her principles, and when she has a disagreement with someone, she will fight until it is black and white. However, if the other side is more reasonable, she is willing to accept it.

On her right arm, she wears a dark weapon and a prosthetic hand that she modified for attack. She was severely injured during the Holy War and lost her family and friends, and has vowed to take revenge on “the man” who is said to be the cause of the whole thing.
