Arc System Works has announced the first Season 3 DLC fighter for Guilty Gear Strive, Johnny, known as the Natural-Born Gambler. He is planned to launch on August 24, 2023. A significant game update is planned for the same date, implementing new mechanics and techniques.
One more Season 3 character is scheduled to release this year, while the other two are planned for 2024. Further, Season 3 ($24.99) will also see two additional stages and alternate colors.
Purchasing Johnny himself will cost $6.99.
A list of what to expect from Guilty Gear Strive in the near future is quoted below:
- 4 New Characters – Beginning with the Johnny DLC on August 24
- 2 New Systems – Introducing Wild Assault and Deflect Shield on August 24
- 2 Additional Battle Stages – Releasing later this year
- Additional Color Pack #3 – More details to come soon
- Plus, the Season Pass 3 Purchase Bonus – Enabling players to use a total of 12 additional character colors (4 characters x 3 colors)
“… the Wild Assault offensive mechanic for a rush attack move with powerful effects, and the Deflect Shield defensive mechanic that creates a large distance between you and your opponent after blocks.
Players will also be challenged to assess the high risk/high reward when taking advantage of these powerful new systems, as both consume 50% of the Burst gauge!”
