Guilty Gear Strive Bedman

Today, at the end of the Guilty Gear - Strive- finals of the Arc World Tour, Arc System Works had news to share about its popular fighting game. 

Specifically, we learn about the third character coming to the second season pass for the game following Bridget and Sin Kiske, and it's Bedman? coming on April 6. At the same time, we're also getting a new stage named Fary's Forest Factory. 

On top of that, there is still a fourth character who remains to be officially announced for the second season pass. Yet, we get to see a small tease, and it's Asuka, coming in May.

Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that we got the confirmation that a third season pass has been confirmed and it is in development. This means that Guilty Gear -Strive- will continue to receive support from Arc System Works for a long while longer, which will likely please many fans.

You can watch the trailer and slides for the new character and stage below.

The Guilty Gear - Strive- tournament of the Arc World Tour was won by Mocchi from Japan, who defeated TY. 

Guilty Gear -Strive- was originally released for PS5, PS4, and PC, and Arc System World added Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, including a launch on Xbox Game Pass, just a few days ago.

During the same event, we got news about DNF Duel, which is also developed by Arc System Works, providing a look at the new character Spectre and the future of the game.
