This past weekend saw a return to LAN fighting games, with one of the first offline events of 2021. Red Bull Kumite, in its North American debut, brought action games to Las Vegas, Nevada. For two days, players from all over the world competed Guilty Gear Strive, Tekken 7, and VO street fighter. Right before the final of Guilty Gear Strive, we’ve got a trailer for the game’s next DLC character, Happy Chaos.
One of the main antagonists of the game’s story mode, Happy Chaos, plays a lot like another character. Guilty Gear character, Elphelt. Dubbed the “Gunslinging Broken Messiah” Happy Chaos uses guns in the majority of his attacks. Unlike Elphelt, he has access to copies of himself that can be used for a variety of purposes. We also see that he has a separate gauge above his tension gauge, similar to Goldlewis. It appears that, like Elphelt, he will have to manually reload his gun, with up to six rounds stored. What the separate gauges do, though, is currently unknown.
Looks like he has some sort of super setting, which can power up his moves. Just like other Guilty Gear Strive reveal the trailer, it ends just before we see Happy Chaos using its full cinematic masterpiece. It will be interesting to see where Happy Chaos sits among the rest of the cast. Especially since he might be the first true zoner in the game. One thing that’s particularly interesting in the trailer is that when Happy Chaos times out, he timed it.
He likes dramas AND guns, obviously
This is not only the first Red Bull Kumite in the US, but also the first Red Bull Kumite to host other games besides VO street fighter. Red Bull is committed to support Striving, and the fact that Active arc system used the platform to reveal their next character showing a strong relationship. The tournament ends with Gobou – who had previously used Zato in the entire event – using Goldlewis, and won against Diaphone’s I-No. Happy Chaos will be available for Guilty Gear Strive pass season holders in a few weeks, on November 30th. Others will be able to hand out glowing guns on December 3rd.
