Guilty Gear Strive Confirmed For PS5 And PC With New And Returning Characters

Guilty Gear Strive is adding a vampire samurai warrior to its roster en route to a 2021 launch on PS5 and PC alongside the PS4 version.


Guilty Gear Strive had a busy weekend during the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable, dropping three big announcements. Developer Arc System Works has confirmed that the game will be launching on PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam alongside the PlayStation 4 version in 2021.

The roster is also receiving two additional fighters. Newcomer Nagoriyuki, who was briefly seen in Guilty Gear Strive's initial reveal, brings a vampire samurai energy to the mix, while the sword-wielding Leo Whitefang is also returning to action.

You can watch the two brawlers in action below, and also read an overview on each of them directly from Arc System Works:


Nagoriyuki is the newest addition to the Guilty Gear universe. A vampire with a number of unique and powerful abilities, he wields a huge sword with impressive skill in battle and slashes at his enemies with punishing blows.

Leo Whitefang

Leo is one of the three "Allied Kings" of the Allied Kingdom of Illyria, and is responsible for the governing of Europe, the Middle East, and Oceania. He is also an accomplished warrior in his own right, with a relentless fighting style.

Guilty Gear Strive was originally scheduled for a 2020 release, but it was delayed until next year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team has pledged to use the extra time to further fine-tune Guilty Gear Strive based on all the feedback that was received from players during the April closed beta test.
