It's official: Baiken arrives in Guilty Gear Strive later this week, on the 28th January for season pass owners. She's out on the 31st as a separate purchase.

A returning fighter and fan-favourite, Baiken is Strive's fourth DLC character, and she comes along with an incredibly pretty new stage called Lap of the Kami. Veteran Guilty Gear players will notice that she plays a similar kind of game to her previous incarnations — but with a couple of key changes. Namely a tether that keeps her close to her opponent, and a more straightforward counter move that works against anything that's not a throw or a projectile.

In any case, she looks great. Are you a big Baiken fan? Flip a tatami mat in the comments section below.
