ARC System Works has released a new trailer that sets the stage for its long-awaited fighting game release. The latest Guilty Gear Strive story trailer continues the plot of the cult classic fighting game with some beautiful visuals and a host of star-studded voice actors playing the game’s countless characters.
While Guilty Gear Strive has had a bumpy road to pitch, this trailer details the game’s flashy animated style and bombastic combat in more detail, as well as sets out the propositions for a high-stakes storyline that will see battles all over the world. world. Guilty Gear Strive doesn’t take a hit when it comes to how wild the story can get, mixing political drama with wild confrontations as new characters Giovanna and Nagoriyuki face off in the corridors of the White House.
The game’s ambitious design may have been its undoing of late, as Guilty Gear Strive has been delayed twice due to COVID-19. With the release date approaching soon, it appears that ARC System Works is doing its best to hype for the long-awaited game to a fever pitch after the end of the final Guilty Gear Strive Beta window on May 16.
It wouldn’t be nice if the story of a fighting game was lost in combat, something the trailer is not negligent about. The clashes between old and new characters set the rhythms of the trailer’s story, with dialogue shaping the return of a Guilty Gear villain in the long run.
Enthusiastic English dub viewers will pick some prestigious voice actors from the cast, such as Matthew Mercer (Attack on Titan, Overwatch) and Tara Platt (Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Naruto Shippuden). Guilty Gear purists can still opt for the game’s Japanese dubbing if they prefer. Guilty Gear Strive features many different characters, so it’s exciting to see tried and true names on the voice acting team that bring these characters to life.
Guilty Gear is just one of many series directed by ARC System Works, a studio beloved for its extensive roster of fighting games that includes titles such as Dragonball FighterZ and BlazBlue: Central Fiction. The addition of Guilty Gear Strive marks the seventh title in the main series, which has been a staple of fighting games since the original 1998 Guilty Gear.
Animated battle scenes will ultimately not be the focus of the game, although they do provide an eye-catching filler to set the scene before the game. Guilty Gear has always employed exaggerated and fast-paced battles (with a few exceptions like the hulking Potemkin) both in and out of the scenes, making riffs from the roots heavily inspired by the anime of the series. The story is just one of the countless Guilty Gear Strive modes that will be available at launch.
Guilty Gear: Strive will be released on June 11 for PC, PS4, and PS5.
