Slayer returns to Guilty Gear Strive for upcoming season

The vampire dandy man, Slayer, is set to return to the stage in the fighting video game Guilty Gear Strive.

At Evo Japan 2024, Arc System Works unveiled Slayer as the final DLC character for Guilty Gear Strive Season 3 in a new trailer.

Slayer will join the roster on May 30th as part of Season Pass 3.

Having first appeared in 2002’s Guilty Gear XX, Slayer has been a formidable presence in the series, though he missed out on recent developments in Strive.

As the former leader of the Assassin’s Guild and the sole known Nightless character until Nagoriyuki’s emergence, fans may find Slayer’s interactions with other characters, especially Nagoriyuki, intriguing.

Known for his teleportation abilities and close-range pressure tactics, Slayer remains one of the most powerful characters in the Guilty Gear universe.

His playstyle in Guilty Gear Strive seems to echo this, with a focus on close-quarters combat and unpredictable movements.

The trailer showcases Slayer’s classic moves, indicating that fans of the character will find him familiar. Additionally, there are many animations featuring his wife, Sharon.

The game released in 2021 is available to play on PC, Xbox and PS4/PS5.
