Arc System Works have launched a feedback survey for fighting game Guilty Gear -Strive-.
Users are asked their ages, gender identity, where they first heard of the game, past games in the series they played, their opinion on various elements of -Strive-, and more. The survey closes August 16th, and you can find it here.
Fans are sure to have plenty of feedback to give. Replies to the tweets [1, UPDATE: 2] have included requests for certain characters, improved lobbies, rollback netcode, crossplay, and to buff certain characters and nerf others; especially May’s much meme’d and spammed Totsugeki attack. There have been a few controversies that may rear its head as well.
Directors Daisuke Ishiwatari and Akira Katano insisted in a recent interview they did not censor the character I-No; but “a change in expression to make the game more accessible to more people.” The same interview also discussed how several game mechanics had been altered to be as enjoyable for as many people as possible.
The game was also updated post-launch to remove any mention of Taiwan, Tibet, and Uyghurs from the game’s lore; all controversial elements for players living under the Chinese government. However, this update came to all versions of the game, regardless of the player’s region.
Guilty Gear -Strive- is available on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
