Arc System Works has announced the fourth downloadable content character Baiken that would be coming to Guilty Gear Strive.
Even though we got Happy Chaos for Guilty Gear Strive recently, Arc System Works has already started teasing the character who’d be added next to the roster.
The character was revealed in a teaser trailer, however, no gameplay footage for Baiken was released. Despite that, fans are all excited and curious about the character after the announcement.

The One-Eyed Warrior Baiken
Baiken is a recurring character in the Guilty Gear series. The lore reveals that she is a wandering samurai of Japanese descent, whose home was raided by Gears during the Crusades. After witnessing the horrible deaths of her family and friends, she swore revenge on the Gear Maker.
The one-eyed warrior Baiken is known for the hidden weapons within the sleeve of her severed arm: a Japanese mace, a feudal cannon, a bladed fan, a chain rope, a hook, a claw, and a spear — collectively referred to as “Demon Tools.” She is also proficient in utilizing Ki and can use summoning magic.
It’s going to be very interesting to see her abilities is translated into the new game where some fighters have undergone major changes compared to their past selves.
Baiken Is Coming To GGS In January
Baiken will be added in late January 2022 with an additional Battle Stage to Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 1. The first season pass of the game will feature five new characters, five colors for each character, two stages, and an extra story.
The trailer shows a battle-ready Baiken ready to slice off her opponents with her Katana. The stunning warrior strikes a pose marking the end of the teaser.
Notably, Baiken’s outfit has not changed or adapted much from Xrd’s aesthetics to Strive.
At the end of the Guilty Gear Strive trailer, Baiken mentions Delilah which is the name of Bedman’s sister. This means Delilah could be revealed in Strive later either as a fighter or background character.
