KONSOLER'S HANGUL GAME OF THE YEAR 2021

GGST has received international acclaim for the completely redefined, easy to get into gameplay.

SOL
BADGUY

An aggressive striker who

超攻撃的ストライカー

A blunt and short-tempered man.
He only speaks when required, and uses as few words as he can get away with.
He's not very good at explaining things, so he prefers to express himself with his aggressive behavior and attitude.

While most see him as selfish and violent, those closest to him accept him for who he is.

KY
KISKE

A classic all-rounder with

excellent moves.

A serious man who dedicates himself completely to his work, the people, and his morals.

His love for justice and determination to help those less fortunate is reflected in all aspects of his life.
On the other hand, this also means he can show rather extreme dislike for anything that disrupts the peace or breaks the rules.
After taking his position as King, this enthusiasm shifted into a broader perspective, allowing him to see the world from a variety of viewpoints.
This isn't to say, however, that he can't still come off as naïve and emotional at times.

BAIKEN

Wielding her opponent's strength as her own

THE UNFALTERING AWAKENED SAMURAI

A swordswoman of Japanese descent.
She gets heated easily and is quick to start a fight. She's the type to jump to action before thinking things through.
She sticks to her principles, and doesn't back down from a disagreement until it's settled.
However, she can still acknowledge when the other party is in the right.

Her right arm has an attached concealed weapon as well as an artificial arm modified for offense.
She has sworn to take revenge on That Man after suffering a serious wound and losing her friends and family in the Crusades.

HAPPY
CHAOS

Restorer of Humanity

Gunslinging Broken Messiah

He is the Original, who first discovered the Backyard and taught humanity about magic.
After absorbing half of I-No, he suddenly changed drastically.
He now carries within himself all of humanity's hope towards living.

He feels that his existence will be forgiven by a greater will when humankind loses their humanity.
The concepts of good and evil are of equal value to him.
He may cause major incidents, but he could also end up on the side of justice.

RAMLETHAL
VALENTINE

A Brigadier who controls the

mid-range with her two swords.

She is a "Valentine," a life form created in the image of humanity.
In accordance with the orders from her mother implanted in her memories, she declared war against humanity.
However, through her interactions with Sol and everyone, she came to know emotion, and eventually became an ally to mankind.

ALL CHARACTERS

SYSTEM

Wall Break

Once you've got the opponent cornered, landing more attacks will break the stage wall, sending the opponent flying to the next area in a thrilling cinematic.
In addition to dealing extra damage, Wall Break grants your character temporary buffs, such as added attack power.

Roman Cancel

Roman Cancel sends out a shockwave while canceling your attack, and causes slow-down for the opponent on hit.
Use it while on offense to overwhelm the opponent, and as a means to escape the opponent's attacks while on defense. Depending on how it's used, Roman Cancel can open up further depth to the gameplay!

Psych Burst

Psych Burst gets you out of trouble at the cost of 100% of the Burst Gauge.
When used during the opponent's combo, you can send them flying back, ending their combo.

Overdrives

Overdrives are powerful special moves that cost half of the Tension Gauge.
Deal massive damage with seamlessly integrated, exciting cinematics!

Wild Assault

An offensive mechanic added in Season 3, performing a powerful lunging attack. The properties vary between characters: some work in combos for additional damage, some make for a great surprise attack, and more. Use this attack strategically, as it costs half of the Burst gauge.

Deflect Shield

A unique blocking mechanic added in Season 3, activated at the cost of half of the Burst gauge. It creates space between the player and opponent when used to block an attack. This is an excellent tool to escape a relentless offense.

MODE

Tutorial

Enjoy the banter between Sol and Ky as you get a hang of the basics of gameplay.
Learn at your own pace, with advice based on your inputs and current skills!

Choose a mission to tackle from the vast world map! Challenge yourself starting from the right level for you.
If you're looking to up your game, try the counter-strategy missions. Filling out the map brings you closer and closer to victory!

Training

In Training Mode, you can practice for any situation.
This is the perfect mode for when you're looking to recreate a specific situation from a match, or practice your combos!

Arcade

Fight against the CPU as you proceed through a unique story for each character.
The story branches depending on how your matches go. Another character will even show up to fight with you when you're in a pinch!

Rank Tower

The online lobby is divided into floors for different skill levels.
Each floor has an entry restriction for players above that level, and as you score wins you automatically move to higher floors.
You move floors depending on your actions during matches, meaning you naturally end up facing players of the same skill level.
Tense matches await, for everyone from new to advanced players!

Digital Figure

In Digital Figure Mode, you can create your own unique scene by placing characters, furniture, and effects. You can change the characters' expressions and poses, as well as the camera angle and filter!

Combo Maker

You can search for and try out combos created by other players, too. Learn new combos, and challenge yourself to difficult ones!

Story

The acclaimed Story Mode makes a return! Asuka R. Kreutz, known as "That Man" and the worst criminal in all of history, creator of Gears and instigator of the Crusades, surrenders to the U.S. government. What decision will the hero, Sol, make in the end...?
