Some more info via PC Invasion:

We will also get a chance to see some pro Guilty Gear players from Japan’s own Cyclops Athlete Gaming take part in a few exhibition matches. Fenrich, Dogura, and last year’s EVO champion for Dragon Ball FighterZ, GO1, will be on hand to show what Guilty Gear Strive is capable of in the hands of professionals. The stream will also showcase the next “Developer’s Backyard” segment, which has been going over the game’s development since the beta earlier this year. The past few Backyard updates on the Arc System Work’s website have been very promising. Most notably for strongly suggesting that the game will feature some form of rollback netcode.

They kept teasing Zappa in Xrd, so I hope he makes a comeback in this game. Love his style.
He wasn't one of my favorites but it would be really cool to see them continue to update these old character designs for this newest entry. They all look really good and unique so far.

The stream is still live. They're showing gameplay. They updated the UI as well, looks better (e.g. fighter portraits no longer moving across the health bar when taking damage).

Nagoiyuki looks slow but I guess he'll have some shenanigans when pops the mask.

5 more playable characters in the season pass. I'm guessing Baiken will be one of them.

can't wait for the story mode.

Guilty Gear Story is just so wacky. Even cops can be good guys.

She looks cool! And didn't expected the character teased at the end, but glad that is back! Can't wait for the game.

On the date reveal trailer I loved that tease to dragon install :) also the game cover looks great as usual!

Man I'm not sure what it is about Strive exactly, but this is probably the least hyped I've been about a GG game. Anji tease is good news, he's due to come back. Don't really like the moveset of Giovanna from what I've seen. Everything looks so slow and chunky in this game.

I-no should be in the game, she is too iconic (and my main)
A.b.a is awesome too, but i think she doesn't have much popularity...

Arc is the new Capcom.

Dragonall FighterZ, Guilty Gear Xrd, BlazBlue, Granblue Fantasy Versus and now Guilty Gear Strive. This puts them above any other fighting developer.

Strive looks so beautiful

The game looks to play like absolute dogshit (I've been playing GG since #Reload; competitively since Slash). I've been ignoring this game until Giovanna popped up.
