ARC World Tour 2022 Finals Preview
A year of competition for Guilty Gear Strive is coming to an end this very weekend!

In just a few hours, the Finals of Arc System's World Tour will kick off with the eight best players in Guilty Gear Strive over the past year. With $100,000 on the line, every one of these players has every incentive needed to play the best Guilty Gear they can. Each of them had a different path to this top 8, but they all get a fresh start in the upper bracket to prove they are the best competitor in the 2022-23 season.

Skyll vs GOBOU

Coming in from the VSFighting X tournament is French player Skyll. Primarily a Sol player, he is paired up against Japanese GOBOU and his REV Major-winning Goldlewis. The last time these two faced each other in an official bracket was during Red Bull Kumite 2021 group stages, with GOBOU advancing over the Frenchman on that particular occasion.

Mocchi vs NBNHMR

Fighters Spirit winner Mocchi is the other remaining sol player in this varied top 8. Sitting beside them on stage for the opening round will be the American Nago NBNHMR, who sliced his way into the competition thanks to a brilliant CEOtaku performance last September. This is the first time the players will clash in a major Top 8.

T Y vs Zando

ARCEvo Japan gave us plenty of action in December, more importantly, it gave Japanese player T Y and his Giovanna a spot in this top 8, in which he will face Zando, The Mixup winner, in a matchup against his Ramlethal. Once again, this is the first top-8 meeting of these players and one that promises plenty of sparks.

UMISHO vs TempestNYC

An all-American lineup to finish the opening matches. Umisho and her Happy Chaos made their way into the event at the earliest time possible, winning the Evo 2022 finals in August last year. Meanwhile, Tempest was the last to enter just a month ago, in February, because of his impressive Frosty Faustings XV 2023 performance. Furthermore, this is a matchup with history, as the two have exchanged blows across 2022, and overall, it has been TempestNYC and his signature Leo getting the best of UMISHO's Happy Chaos.
