Guilty Gear Strive Season 2 Adds Four New Characters, Beginning August 8 With Bridget

A fresh quartet of characters are making their way to the new Guilty Gear in the new season.


Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear Strive Season 2 at Evo 2022, with the first character of the four Season 2 additions was also announced: Bridget, who hasn't been playable in a Guilty Gear game since 2008's Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus.

Bridget marks the sixth addition to Guilty Gear Strive since its 2020 launch, preceded by Goldlewis Dickinson, Happy Chaos, Jack-O, Baiken, and Testament. They wield a giant yo-yo as a weapon, while also carrying a plush teddy bear that will throw out a few attacks of its own.
