Guilty Gear Strive introduced two new characters to the fighting game’s cannon when it was launched last month, but both are pretty tame Compared to the first fighter after the release, a man whose fighting style is almost exclusively about using a foreign coffin acquired from Area 51.
Goldlewis Dickinson is not new to eager Obliged equipment fans. He previously played a role in Struggle story mode as US President Colin Vernon’s right hand man and Secretary of Defense, and may even have appeared in the previous game as a background character lovingly known as Burger Sheriff thanks to his, well, endless bag of burgers.
Now he joins the fight. Guilty Gear Strives official website expands his background and said that Goldlewis is the only Secretary of Defense in US history who also serves as an active military officer. He is also stronger than the entire White House security force, apparently, which explains why he is almost always a few meters from the president.
“With his excellent judgment and ability to lead based on his extensive fighting experience, he has gained immense popularity and earned the trust of those around him,” the site’s description continues. “[I]It is no exaggeration to say that the security and authority of the United States is established because of his presence, which makes him the mainstay of the nation. ”
What the very impressive biography omits, however, is that Goldlewis carries around a giant coffin with warnings about his alien inhabitant from area 51. It is unclear whether being in his transforming weapon is an alien or a cryptid with more earth-based origins. , but it certainly seems to have a close bond with Goldlewis in battle. At one point, it bounces off an ethereal arm outside the coffin to hold up a mirror while Goldlewis fixes his pompadour hairdresser, which is just gorgeous.
We’re sure to learn more about this enigmatic character when Goldlewis Dickinson is added Guilty Gear Strive next week (July 27 for season ticket subscribers and July 30 for everyone else). I personally look forward to seeing this alienating weirdo in action on the competition circuit.
