EVO 2022 came with a variety of hype moments over the weekend, including The most “cell cry” I’ve ever heard Where Dragon Ball FighterZSeason 1 in 2018. Throughout the tournament, there were some ads as well, such as Welcome reveal of net undo code for more fighting games. But perhaps the most exciting news is that the classic fighter Bridget is the next upcoming DLC character Guilty Gear Jahed. What’s more, in the day or so, arcade mode footage revealed that Bridget appeared as a trans girl. Talk about W!
Bridget was first introduced in 2002 Guilty Gear XXpresenting like a very cute boy He instantly stole the hearts of fans. Although he was born One of the twin sons of a billionaire coupleBridget’s gender display was decidedly feminine despite their use of masculine pronouns. (Official reason: quirky anime crap.) However, with Bridget’s official return as a playable character in Pursuit As part of the game’s $25 season pass, ArcSys gave them an “out” moment where they announced that they were, in fact, getting to know they were a girl.
Skilled yo-yo user, Bridget dialogue in Pursuit It shows she feels comfortable expressing her trans identity, says Deuterajist Ki Kisuke And the US Defense Secretary (LOL) Goldlois Dickinson which – which,”[calling me] Cowgirl is fine. Because I’m a girl!”
Yas, Queen, live your truth! We love to see her. In fact, a lot of people online celebrated the reveal fan of art And the Memes. someone even Created a mod for Bridget that sees them dressed in blue, pink and white From the flag of Trans Pride. It is a nice!

Not everyone was excited about getting past Bridget, though, which shouldn’t come as a surprise in this space. Willing to dismiss their identity wholesale, there are plenty of gross tweets criticizing ArcSys and giving us an actual fleeting personality in Pursuit. While there are some nuances to the idea that the studio could “erase a character’s past identity,” As one of the loudspeakers put itMost of the negative rhetoric around Bridget is framed as ill-intentioned arguments about “grooming”.
The negative response to Bridget’s exit is alarming to say the least. At a time when the US government is putting in place legislation aimed at attacking the LGBT experience, having representation in the media – especially in games – should be seen as a blessing. It reassures people in our society that it’s okay to be who you are, and that the way you define yourself is accepted and loved. As a non-binary individual, he sees little of himself in him The noble covenant “Reaper of Souls”And the PursuitEnppi’s first character, I totally live because Bridget comes alone.
