New Guilty Gear Strive High-Level Gameplay For Ky, Sol, Axl


Get a look at high-level play for Axl Low, Ky Kiske, and Sol Badguy as they take on Zato-1 and Nagoriyuki from the Guilty Gear Strive dev team. In this exclusive clip we get to see brand new moves for Axl, Ky, and Sol.
Guilty Gear Strive is the next core entry in Arc System Works' groundbreaking fighting game series, and it continues with the franchise's fusion of slick anime-style visuals and heavy-metal infused action. Ahead of the fighting game's upcoming beta starting later this month on February 17, GameSpot has exclusive new gameplay showing off some high-level matches with Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, and Axl Low. In these fights, we also get a first look at each character's particular super move, which leans heavily into their fighting style and personality.
Axl Low's One Vision (timestamp - 0:45)
Input: 632146 + P
One Vision is a move that temporarily freezes the opponent by controlling time. After inputting the command to ready the move, inputting the command again releases the attack that freezes the opponent. The freezing attack can be cancelled into from any move even in the air, including special moves.
Ky Kiskes Dragon Install (timestamp - 4:19)
Input: 214214 + HS (When at low Health)
Ky transforms, strengthening each of his special moves significantly. On activation, it sends out a shockwave that knocks the opponent back. It will also cause an Area Shift on hit in the corner.
Sol Badguy's Heavy Mob Cemetery (timestamp - 8:30)
Sol transforms, performing an invincible lunge attack. It has long range and does incredible damage. Due to its great range, it's an excellent way to punish a vulnerable opponent.

    I love fighting games, but not Guilty Gear. It feels like you are fighting with paper dolls or something. What do they need to do to fix that? Better sound effects on hit? Better hit box / hurt box detection? Better animation? I don't know. It's just.. I dunno.

    @Kuya Buzz I don't even really enjoy watching it that much, it looks like players just throw moves out in hopes that they hit, and sometimes you can't even tell if a combo was supposed to be dropped or not. Nothing really seems solid or guaranteed.

    @Sunrise Sunset i agree with you, i tried playing guilty gear, even went to training for a few days... But there just something lacking. The animation & art is the best though that's why its best just to watch someone play rather than play it myself.

    Okay 2 things to, why are the characters getting chunkier with every new game? It really looks bad to me. They used to have style and awesome silhouette in the older games. Guilty Gear X Sol still the best looking. And two...having BGM with lyrics in a fighting game is a bad move for me. With tons of fighting games behind my back, I'm pretty sure of this. P.S. Sol's dragon form reminds of Devilman, which is cool.
