Guilty Gear: Strive gameplay – Sol vs. Nagoriyuki, Ky vs. Giovanna, and Axl vs. Ramlethal

Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, and Axl Low's new techniques showcased.

Arc System Works has released three new gameplay videos of Guilty Gear: Strive featuring Sol Badguy versus Nagoriyuki, Ky Kiske versus Giovanna, and Axl Low versus Ramlethal.

The footage highlights the following new skills:

Sol Badguy – “Heavy Mob Cemetery”

An extremely powerful and invincible rush attack with long reach in which Sol transforms into a monstrous figure and attacks. Since timing is not an issue, you can easily activate it between the opponent’s attacks.

Ky Kiske – “Dragon Install”

Just like “Heavy Mob Cemetery,” this skill transforms Ky into a monstrous figure, but significantly strengthens a number of his specials. It also emits a shockwave upon activation that blows back the opponent, so hitting them at the edge of the screen can trigger a wall break that moves the battle to a new area.

Axl Low – “One Vision”

Manipulates time and stops the opponent for a limited amount of time. This attack stops the opponent when the command is input a second time via a prepared motion. The stop attack can even be activated in mid-air and derive from any skill including specials.
