Answer Detailed in Latest Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 Spotlight

Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2‘s update to Revelator adds two new characters as well as numerous updates and tweaks — Answer and Baiken. PQube have already highlighted Baiken, but now that the game is out it’s time to take a look at Answer!

 

 

Answer is a “business ninja”, who spends every fight juggling between important phone calls and laying down the pain. He’s all about speed and mobility, controlling the environment by zipping around ninja scrolls he places around the arena. This is the first time he’s ever been playable! But here’s what PQube has to say about how he plays!

 

The right-hand man to self-proclaimed president, Chipp Zanuff, Answer is focused, professional and reliable. After initially disliking Chipp and challenging him to a duel, which he then lost convincingly, they have developed a strong friendship. Answer often has to cover for Chipp in both politics and business, earning him the moniker of The Business Ninja. He works tirelessly to manage the affairs of the Eastern Kingdom of Chipp and is always trying to get their nation recognized as a legitimate country by other governments.

Answer utilizes long range on his attacks to control space on the ground and his incredible speed and agility to move around the screen and mix his opponents up at a rapid pace. His Savvy Ninpo: Request for Approval (ninja scrolls) allow him unparalleled mobility and strong mix-up potential.

Answer’s Resshou, his grounded palm strike attack is safe on block and is an excellent option for ending strings of blocked attacks or cancelling with a Red Roman Cancel for extended combos.

Answer is capable of putting on relentless pressure with safe blockstrings and a hard-to-read mix-up game that can put even the strongest opponents on their heels. But if he catches them being too defensive he has a command grab to break their guard, the Savvy Ninpo: Tax Write-off, a devastating ninja izuna drop. It can also be performed in the air and Red Roman Cancelled for extended combos.

With incredible speed, mobility, mix-ups and safe attacks, Answer is very solid when he goes in, but he also has a projectile, the Business Ninpo: Caltrops. He throws a business card as if it’s a shuriken that then embeds itself in the ground. From there he can either teleport to the position of the card or send a shadow clone to attack from it. The projectile can be Yellow Roman Cancelled and followed up on.

Being a very offensively minded character, Answer’s defensive options are limited – his only invincible attack is the Burst version of his super, which require a lot of resources. His main tool in a tight spot is the Savvy Ninpo: Data Logging, a quick counter move that beats high attacks and throws.

With the Savvy Ninpo: Request for Approval set on the screen, Answer has an incredibly strong pressure game when he scores a knockdown on his opponent. By placing the K version of the scrolls over the downed opponent, Answer has a variety of dangerous options too mix his opponents up.
