Now that we’ve finally gotten to see Faust in action, HiFight is back with another analysis video. This time it’s a side-by-side comparison of the legacy characters revealed for Guilty Gear Strive and their Xrd counterparts.
Beginning with Faust, its not just different frames but also the big changes to his design, which make him look a lot more menacing. Focusing on special moves, we first see Faust perform his baseball bat and fishing rod attacks in a much creepier fashion than before.
Next up are Ky Kiske, Sol Badguy, May, Axl Low, Chipp Zanuff, and Potemkin, in that order. All of the character intros and outros are different from those in Xrd, yet while some like Potemkin’s are just a matter of perspective, others like Fausts are very dissimilar.
When Guilty Gear Xrd was released in 2014, it looked gorgeous with its 2.5D graphics, but now seen beside Strive, the difference is huge. The contrast is huge in a way only ARC System Works seems able to pull off.
Guilty Gear Strive is scheduled for a late 2020 release with the next game trailer arriving on March 22. A playable demo will also be available at EVO Japan 2020 and Japan Amusement Expo 2020.
