Story modes are always a challenge for fighting game developers. It’s a place where players get to know this specific world and its inhabitants — those characters you can use in the actual matches. But also, weaving fights of various characters into the story flow is quite a task.
In some gamesб the whole experience is kind of forced: fights limit creativity of the story, while the plot limits development within the fights. The Guilty Gear series is on a different level as these games have no matches in their story modes. It’s mostly an anime series that allows players to feel the characters and understand their backgrounds.
To be honest, the whole world of Guilty Gear -Strive- is pretty complicated. Yep, it’s perfect for anime! And now, the primary story mode got an interesting addition — Another Story has been added to the game. This might be a distraction from your primary growth in the fighting environment, but that’s an exciting distraction.
Another Story is available after purchasing Season Pass 1 in Guilty Gear -Strive-.
