First introduced in Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, the final version of Xrd release in 2017, Jack-O is a relatively newer character in the franchise, with Strive marking her second appearance in the series.
The Jack-O announcement leaked via social media hours before it became official, confirming Arc System Works plans of trying to introduce both familiar faces and brand-new fighters like Goldlewis Dickinson, which was the first DLC Strive received.
