Guilty Gear Strive DLC Character Elphelt Valentine
Elphelt Valentine finally makes her return in Guilty Gear Strive, and fans can look forward to more DLC and updates throughout Season 3. Arc System Works confirms that a free update is available with battle balance adjustments for the roster and new special moves for Axl Low and Potemkin. A new online 3v3 online versus mode titled “Team of 3” is also coming in a new update launching sometime in 2024. In this mode, six players will battle against each other in a single match.
Here’s an overview of the new DLC character, courtesy of Arc System Works:
Ignite the drive within your soul! Sweet daydream bullet train Elphelt crashes onto the scene. Created by the Universal Will, Elphelt can easily overwhelm one’s opponent with a mass arsenal of mix-up tools while remaining simple to pick up and play. Her love for nature and animals makes seeing anyone alone unbearable. As a head-first problem solver, she leads with impenetrable optimism.
Following a battle with the Universal Will, she assumes a position within Illyria Castle, where she struggles to keep up with the work confidently. Although no one blames her for making mistakes, this fact weighs on Elphelt, and she runs off. Throughout her journey, she longs to bring smiles to people’s faces, which she later finds to be in the form of a microphone. To this day, her band, “Speothos Venaticus,” remains popular among the scene.
