Ky Kiske demonstrates new Dragon Install in latest Guilty Gear Strive footage

Earlier today, GameSpot released new footage for Guilty Gear Strive that features gameplay from the developers. During the nine minute video, some new moves were shown off for Axl Low, Ky Kiske and Sol Badguy.

It seems that Ky Kiske now has access to a Dragon Install, something that's typically been reserved only for Sol Badguy. As of right now, it's unknown why Ky Kiske is able to suddenly perform a Dragon Install, but this will certainly have an effect on his gameplay.

According to GameSpot, Ky Kiske's new technique strengthens "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."

It's easy to notice how Ky Kiske's main projectile becomes significantly larger with this Dragon Install active. As he's able to combo off of this projectile, you really want to be careful around this character while powered up like this.

As noted by GameSpot, this powerup can only be activated while the character is at low health. This will be particularly effective for mounting comebacks, or winning last hit situations.

To perform Ky Kiske's Dragon Install, the player must do a quarter-circle back motion twice, followed by pressing the heavy slash button. Check out the footage below:
