Here are some highlights from Famitsu‘s newest interview with Daisuke Ishiwatari and Akira Katano:
- “(We renewed everything because) when we created extensions up until now, it was difficult for a new player base to get in. We are also aware of the global market trailblazing.”
- “In the present scenario, the event prices go up whereas the consumer rely goes down. We need to have many individuals acknowledge the Guilty Gear model and play the sport.”
- “Another reason for that is because we wanted to make a drastic change somewhere.”
- “I-No‘s design becoming more obedient is not censorship. We changed the presentation to have even more people play as her.”
- “The combo amount is reduced, but that also makes short-ending combos perform more.”
- “We understand that there are pros and cons, but we also removed common techniques. So people from all layers can stand on the same starting line.”
- “Not including Venom on launch was a decision that required bravery.”
- “The DLC will have a good ratio between new and existing characters.”
A specific level within the interview got here with the mentioning of Venom, a recurring collection character who appeared from Guilty Gear X to the Xrd collection. Although the beginning roster of Xrd‘s first title Sign included Venom, he didn’t make it into the Strive launch roster. Arc System Works has but to formally title any of the 5 DLC characters that may be part of Guilty Gear Strive by means of the primary season cross.
Guilty Gear Strive will formally launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on June 11, 2021. Players who bought the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition can play the sport instantly by means of early entry.
