Following Guilty Gear Strive's tournament in Community Effort Orlando 2021, Arc System Works released a new teaser for Strive's fourth DLC character, confirming this would be Baiken. One of the franchise fan favourites, she sports a defensive playstyle with her skills.
In Guilty Gear's story, Baiken is a character hellbent on killing Asuka R. Kreutz, taking revenge for creating the Gears who decimated her loved ones and most of Japan. However, Kreutz has since turned over a new leaf and gave up his plans to run a radio broadcast show from the moon.
Guilty Gear Strive: Baiken Confirmed as Fourth DLC Character at CEO 2021
With Kreutz turning good, correcting some mistakes and no longer interested in threatening the world anymore, Baiken's goals as a character could be different this time around. We'll have to see upon her arrival in Guilty Gear Strive to know what she's planning.
At the trailer's end, Baiken's release date was confirmed for January 2022. Players will have to wait to see her gameplay trailer and moveset reveal, likely taking place next month. For now, we'll have to wait to hear more about her.
