Guilty Gear Strive Reveals Brand New Character Giovanna and Anji Comeback

ArcSystemWorks revealed Giovanna is the brand new fighter joining Guilty Gear Strive, coming to PS4, PS5, and Steam. Anji Mito is finally back as well.

On October 11, ArcSystemWorks, at the “Guilty Gear Latest Information Live Stream Special” revealed a brand new character for Guilty Gear Strive, Giovanna. Her trailer, included further below, also teases that another character, Anji Mito, is coming back. Anji is a classic Guilty Gear character who wasn’t present in the previous iteration, Guilty Gear Xrd. It’s his big comeback. The next trailer is scheduled for January 1, 2021.

Here’s the official profile for Giovanna in Guilty Gear Strive:

Name: Giovana (voiced by: Mayumi Shintani)
Height: 170 cm
Weight: 62 kg
Blood type: O type
Date of Birth: November 6th
Birthplace: Brazil
Hobbies: Looking at the moon
What she treasures: REI (her wolf spirit companion), her professionalism
Dislikes: The smell of cigarettes and alcohol

Giovanna is the bodyguard of the President of the United States. Giovanna is always superficially polite but rude in intent. She’s a good person in the inside though, and is always nice to children and animals. When fighting, she is possessed by her wolf spirit companion Rei, granting her inhuman strength and speed.

13 characters have been revealed so far in Guilty Gear Strive, and the game will have 15 characters at launch. Another brand new character is Nagoriyuki, revealed in the previous trailer. On the new stream, it was revealed Nagoriyuki is voiced by Taiten Kusunoki. A short voice clip was played. Daisuke Ishiwatari and the ArcSystemWorks staff on stream said his voice was recorded only a week ago.

Recently, a Guilty Gear Xrd player made a pretty cool video using Rhythm Game mechanics to teach combos.

Guilty Gear Strive is coming to PC via Steam, PS4 and PS5, and has no specific release date yet besides early 2021. Stay tuned as the stream is still ongoing, with exhibition matches between Fenritti, GO1, and Dogura. Cosplayer Chloe Yuki is present as well and did a pretty cute Millia Rage cosplay.
