A new playable DLC character has been added to the roster of Guilty Gear -Strive- for Season 2. He arrives in the game as purchasable DLC priced at $6.99. Players who own Season Pass 2 immediately get access to this character.

Asuka R♯ is considered one of the most capable magic wielders. As someone who is a scientist as well as a master of magic, there are those who consider him a genius. While there's no question that his intellect is indeed unparalleled, he lacks stamina to the point that even the slightest of exercise can tire him out. In addition, he continues to transmit "clear numbers" from space and often finds himself involved in discord. Still, many remain to find him polite and humble.

At the peak of his magical capabilities, he is a highly technical character capable of using 26 types of spells having different effects beneficial in battle.

Aside from a new playable character, players can also test out the new battle stage known as Tír na nÓg. This was previously an abandoned space colony which became a unique home allowing humankind to survive in outer space. This stage has various items, which reflect its current residents, like a giant telescope and even a Japanese-style garden.
