Prior to the release of Guilty Gear Strive, Arc System Works provided a small tease of information regarding Guilty Gear Strive's Season Pass. The first DLC challenger will be a newcomer in the series. Following this, the second challenger will be a returning veteran from a previous Guilty Gear title.

As of right now, none of the five Season Pass characters have been officially revealed by Arc System Works. However, with the game out in the wild, data miners have had the opportunity to see if anything is hidden within the game's files. Notably, five names may have been leaked as a result. Be advised that potential spoilers on the five characters' identities lie ahead.

According to the image depicting the data mined files, three of the characters coming via the DLC package will be newcomers. The remaining two will be familiar veterans from previous entries in the series.

If this information is accurate, then it means that the first DLC fighter will be one of the following: Happy Chaos, Asuka (That Man) or Goldlewis Dickinson.

Most fans were probably predicting that Happy Chaos would be the first DLC newcomer to join the roster based on his impact on the game's main story. Along with I-No, Happy Chaos acts as Guilty Gear Strive's main antagonist.

This means that the Guilty Gear Season Pass will only have two veteran characters. Reportedly, the first two returning Guilty Gear combatants will be Jack-O' Valentine and Jam Kuradoberi.

Guilty Gear Strive's first newcomer is scheduled to be released in July 2021. Following this, the first veteran and second DLC fighter will be released in August 2021. The dates for the three remaining fighters for the Season Pass are currently unknown.
