Readers may be aware that I am a fanatic when it comes to Arc System Works fighting games and particularly Guilty Gear Strive. As we make our way through the game’s Season Pass, I have taken every opportunity to share the new characters and show off how they play in breakdowns and on stream. Now Baiken has launched as the game’s fourth DLC character and I’m ready to throw down with her!
Baiken launched in Guilty Gear Strive on January 28, 2022 as the fourth of five DLC characters in the game’s first Season Pass (January 31 for non-pass holders). Baiken is one of the last remaining characters of the original Guilty Gear roster to join GG Strive. A one-armed, one-eyed samurai, Baiken wields a katana one-handed and houses a wealth of deadly gadgets where her other arm used to be. This time out she features a gimmick in which she can tether her opponent so they cannot get away from her temporarily.
Join me as I go live with Baiken in Guilty Gear Strive on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 2:30 p.m. PT / 5:30 p.m. ET! You can also watch just below.
