Arc System Works has confirmed further details about Guilty Gear Strive's third DLC character, Happy Chaos. This new character brandishes a pair of guns to shoot his foes as he fights.
However, this character is more than just a lunatic who helped out to destroy the world in Guilty Gear Strive. Here's what you need to know.
Who is Happy Chaos in Guilty Gear Strive?
In Guilty Gear Strive's story, Happy Chaos is one of the main villains who helped I-no achieve her goals to destroy the current world. In their goals, he's hatched plans such as using Nagoriyuki against Sol Badguy.
More than just an unpredictable accomplice to I-no, Happy Chaos was actually a strong magus who taught a previous Guilty Gear antagonist, Asuka R. Kreutz, about magic. His current state of insanity was due to being fused with half of I-no's time-altering powers, which gave him omnipotence and is experiencing life in a non-linear fashion.
As a character, Happy Chaos has a unique system that he can raise to aim his gun and shoot his foes. The special feature of his gun is he can shoot at any time while it is raised, which allows him to juggle foes immediately in combos and extend pressure where most characters can't.
We'll update you how players find more about this character's playstyle is found and discovered.
