A.B.A. is hitting the roster on Tuesday, March 26th, along with season pass 3. She is also coming along with the Engulfed Lives and Fallen Prayer stages. It is also a new move for Millia Rage.

Since her debut in Guilty Gear Isuka, she has been a fan favorite for the players.

Her play style is slow compared to that of other fighters. But once she gets going, shes a force to be reckoned with. She has her own jealous rage mode that gives her additional buffs and benefits.

However, she looks a bit different from her previous counterparts. Now instead of red hair, she has gone for a limeish, faint green style. Her axe, called Paracelsus, is still at her hip, giving his wife much-needed support.

During her enraged state, her hair goes bald, and the key turns into a sharp axe shape. Needless to say, you can tell when she is enraged.

Series creator Daisuke Ishiwatari explains her absence from the series due to A.B.A. discovering hobbies. Instead of fighting, she has been enjoying fashion and makeup. This explains her more stylish look this time around.

A new voice actor has been chosen for her husband, the key actor, Akira Kamiya. For those who dont know, this is the voice of Ryo Seaba and Kenshiro. As in City Hunter and Fist of the North Star. This anime legend, who has been making waves for 50 years, is voicing the key dude.

Im not the mans agent or anything, but whoever thought of this over at Arc, great job!


Created atop a mountain home named Frasco, A.B.A. is an artificial life form, or homunculus, the creation of a scientist who lived within Frasco.

However, before her birth, the aforementioned scientist was taken away by the military, which was planning to use his skills for unknown reasons. When her eyes opened for the first time, A.B.A. found herself alone within Frasco and lived the first 10 years of her life in total isolation.

Escape from Frasco was not impossible. Nevertheless, A.B.A. quickly realized that she had no knowledge of how to exist outside of her home. To find relief from her sadness, she began to collect keys of all kinds, as they represented the opening of a bold new world and an escape from imprisonment.

While roaming outside one day, still tired of her isolated life, A.B.A. stumbled upon an ancient relic known as Flament Nagel. It was love at first sight. As the war relic was shaped like a key, A.B.A. decided to keep him as her partner; she renamed him Paracelsus. Her new goal was to acquire an artificial body for her newfound partner.

Lets hope her arcade mode reveals more about her absense and furthers her plot a tad.
