    PQube has the released a new character trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 that introduces Baiken.

    View it below:

    Here is an overview of the game:

    One of the few people of Japanese descent left in the world of Guilty Gear after Japan was almost entirely destroyed in the crusades, Baiken is brash, impulsive, anti-social and motivated by a burning desire for revenge against Gears. She wanders the world looking for signs of That Man, the person she believes responsible for the death of her family and the crippling injuries she sustained as a child.

    Despite only having one arm, Baiken has incredible skill with her katana and has developed a unique fighting style using a variety of weapons up her sleeve. Her ‘demon tools’ include a mace, cannon, bladed fan, hook, claw and a spear.

    Baiken has a new trick, with her new projectile, the Suzuran Yashagatana, that shoots a rocket along the ground. She can utilize a Yellow Roman Cancel to use the projectile to cover her approach.

    In Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2, Baiken is an offensively minded character with limited defensive tools. Her main defensive strategy is her Azami stance, which allows her to counter attacks, both on the ground and in the air.

    Her mobility is slower, so she spends most her time controlling space with her sword, mace and infamous tatami mat, while trying to corner her opponents and looking for a knockdown opportunity.

    Baiken shines when she knocks the opponent down, with several options for putting on the pressure and making her opponents crack.

    Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 will launch for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on May 25 in Japan and May 26 in North America and Europe. The Steam version will launch on June 1.
