Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Elphelt Valentine out now

Guilty Gear: Strive

Publisher and developer Arc System Works have announced the next Guilty Gear: Strive downloadable content fighter – Elphelt Valentine, launches this month.

Elphelt Valentine is launching for the fighting game today on all platforms as part of its Season Pass 3. A balancing update is also out today, and 3-player team battles are coming in 2024.

Here’s a rundown on the new fighter:

Elphelt Valentine

  • Height: 5’6″ (168 cm)
  • Weight: Dreamy
  • Blood Type: Unknown
  • Date of Birth: December 25
  • Origin: Backyard
  • Hobbies: Romantic discussions, pretending to be a bush dog, impromptu singing
  • Values: Smiles, her bush dog shaped coin bank, anything sweet
  • Dislikes: Creepy insects, killing, loneliness

Elphelt is one of the Valentines created by the Universal Will. She loves animals and nature and can’t bear to see anyone alone. She will charge into any problem head-first, shielded by impenetrable optimism.

After the battle with the Universal Will, she takes on a position within Illyria Castle, but is not able to keep up well with the work. Although no one blames her for making mistakes, this very fact weighs on Elphelt, and she runs off.

What can she do to bring smiles to people’s faces? Elphelt finds the answer to her quandary in the form of a microphone. Her band, Speothos Venaticus, is active on the scene to this day.

Guilty Gear: Strive has been available on Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
