The Evo 2022 event for fans of Guilty Gear Strive was an amazing experience. Arc System Works has announced a full load of content coming to the game soon, including a new playable character, Bridget!
The company announced the release date for Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 2, along with the first DLC character Bridget as August 8th.
Guilty Gear -Strive-
Guilty Gear -Strive- is a video game developed by Arc System Works.
The fighting video game is about a teen-girl who woke up from a long sleep. She has been living in dreams since birth due to a unique condition. This very rare condition is caused by her brain’s inability to withstand her extraordinary intelligence and abilities. Other than that she do not fully understand the social nature.
Guilty Gear Strive is an excellent fighting game that successfully bridges the gap between depth and accessibility without compromising the core principles of the series. Strive’s enhanced neutral focus, slightly slower pacing, character richness, and mechanically robust combat are second to none.
Who is Bridget?
Bridget is a brand new character in Guilty Gear. It’s basically a character walking a dog.
Yo-yo-wielding Bridget in Guilty Gear Strive has been a fan favorite since it’s debut in Guilty Gear X2. It’s one of the series’ most relatable characters. In 2013, a poll was held by the developers in which the franchise fans voted Bridget the most popular character in the Guilty Gear series.
So it’s no surprise that it’s the first DLC character. Arc System Works introduced it as a playable character in Season Pass 2. Now that Bridget has finally made it onto the character roster, it will be very interesting to see who will be the next in the title list later this year.
There’s something more to Bridget!
In addition to new playable characters, Bridget comes with two new combat tiers and a second color pack. Arc System describes Bridget as an “easy-to-learn” character with long-range attacks and excellent movement.
Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 2 introduces a total of four new characters, with three more to be added in the future. The studio recently announced that it has sold over one million copies worldwide. It’s the first game in the Guilty Gear series to reach this milestone. To celebrate the new DLC, Arc System Works has also released a new original music video themed around Sol Badguy.
In Japanese culture, Bridget is the quintessential otokonoko (male) character. A recent example is Tsukasa Okino from 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, a game admired by many including Yoko Taro and Masahiro Sakurai.
