Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Jack-O’, the latest fighter coming to the game.
Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Jack-O’ is coming as part of the game’s Season Pass 1 on August 27, and via separate paid DLC on August 30 for all game owners.
Here’s a rundown on the character, via the game’s official site:
Dominates The Battle With An Assembly Of Servants
HYPER ENERGETIC MARSHAL FIGHTER
Jack-O’ is an artificial life-form created by Asuka R. Kreutz to prevent the revival of Justice, the herald of destruction.
As Justice was created using Aria, Sol’s love interest in the past, as a base, Jack-O’ managed to prevent Justice’s awakening by fusing with Aria’s soul within Justice. It was at this time Aria’s soul was fully restored within Jack-O’.
However, Aria’s consciousness has yet to fully manifest, leaving jack-O’ in an unstable state where her personality remains unchanged.
Although she tries her best to be cool and collected in her demeanor, she tends to act child-like when her emotion gets the best of her.
For that reason, she wears a special mask to keep her composure during battle.
Here’s a new trailer:
In recent news, Guilty Gear: Strive managed to sell and ship over 500,000 copies worldwide since its release in the second week of June 2021.
