Arc System Works has just released the latest trailers for their upcoming title, Guilty Gear Strive, during the New Game Plus Expo broadcast. The two most recently revealed contenders, I-No and Anji Mito, are the center of attention this time around.

Featured in these two new trailers is gameplay for the final two characters who are rounding out Strive's launch roster.

Anji Mito fights using dual-wielded fans. He has solid range on his normal attacks and sets up a number of different juggle combos throughout the trailer.

This gameplay footage is particularly enlightening, as it shows us what Anji can convert into from a well-timed anti-air, and also provides an example of a Roman Cancel combo. We also witness one of his super attacks, which sees a large fan placed on screen that spins and hits the opponent multiple times — similar to Guile's Critical Art in Street Fighter 5.

Hard rockin' I-No also has an excellent display here, as we're given a look at some of her powerful pokes, corner combos, and even what appears to be a counter move. I-No's air dash pressure appears to be no joke, with a sequence shown that sees her canceling multiple air normals into multiple dashes for relentless offense.

Both of these characters saw initial reveal trailers previously, but voice clips were omitted likely due to them still being earlier in development. Today's quick exhibitions feature full voice work for both Anji Mito and I-No, so we get to hear what they'll sound like here in Strive.

Guilty Gear Strive was originally slated for release on April 9, 2021, however, Arc System Works announced this week that the game is being pushed back to further polish its development. The game's new release date is June 11, 2021.
