Guilty Gear -STRIVE-, also originally referred to as New Guilty Gear and Guilty Gear (2020), is a new upcoming game in the Guilty Gear series that was announced at EVO 2019. Nothing much is known about this entry, aside from Daisuke Ishiwatari stating that it will be like “a completely new Guilty Gear”. Daisuke also later stated at Tokyo Game Show 2019 that the game would not be another Guilty Gear Xrd title, it would also not be a numbered title like Guilty Gear 2: Overture, and that not all the characters from Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 would be coming back.

On November 3rd, Daisuke confirmed on an ArcLive stream that the game will also have an English dub, making this the latest game in the Guilty Gear series to feature an English voice cast since both the release of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- in 2014, and since the establishment of Arc System Works' America branch in late 2017.

-STRIVE- is expected to release for PlayStation 4 in late 2020, with an arcade version coming soon.[1]


Returning CharactersEdit

New CharactersEdit

  • Unnamed Samurai (debuted in reveal trailer)




  • The official logo highlights the IV in -STRIVE-. While the game is not officially referred to as it, it could imply that -STRIVE- is theoretically/spiritually both the fourth X series game (X, XX, and Xrd), and the fourth main series game (1, 2, and 3).
