Guilty Gear Strive made the most changes to its gameplay since launch with the Season 3 update a few months back, but they aren’t done yet.
Arc System Works revealed during their Paris Games Week 2023 presentation that more new special moves are coming to Strive in the next update along with what one of them will be.
It appears the first of the two new specials is going to Potemkin with the Heat Tackle move that sends him flying diagonally upward across the stage.
This Heat Tackle appears a bit similar to his I.C.P.M attack from the Guilty Gear Xrd games except it has armor and can seemingly lead to good corner carry and Oki.
We don’t know who the other character is that’s getting the other new attack, but they’ve previously said that all original launch fighters will be getting them eventually with I-No, May, Ramlethal, Zato-1, Anji, Giovanna, and Faust having received theirs already.
A December update also suggests that’s when the second DLC character for Season 3 after Johnny will be releasing too since the roadmap showed one more for 2023.
