Guilty Gear Strive’s most fan requested characters survey results revealed

Arc System Works has released the results of a particular investigation regarding Guilty Gear Strive. Fans of the series were asked which playable characters they would like to play in Guilty Gear Strive in the future. Those who could complete the survey could make up to three choices.

This question was posed to the five regions: North America, South America, Europe, Japan, and Korea. Needless to say, as a result, a top 10 list for each region was created.

It seems that the overall winners in all five regions were Slayer and Johnny. Slayer took first place in the North American and European regions. He also placed second, fourth and seventh in the South American, Korean and Japanese regions respectively.

Fans had the opportunity to suggest that a guest character join the Guilty Gear Strive roster. While this idea made it into the top 10 for the North American, South American, and European regions, this concept didn’t break the top 10 for the Japanese and Korean regions.

It seems that both the Japanese and Korean regions would rather see Order Sol rejoin the fight than have a guest character added. Outside of these two regions, Order Sol took only tenth place in the South American region.

Despite playing an important role in the Guilty Gear storyline, Asuka only made the top 10 in the European, Japanese and Korean regions. Even then, it’s worth noting that Asuka finished ninth and tenth in the European and Korean regions, respectively.

As was recently revealed with the Guilty Gear Strive season 2 roadmap, the first season 2 DLC fighter coming to Guilty Gear Strive will be available before the end of summer 2022, which should be relatively soon.

After the sixth DLC fighter is released in the summer of 2022, the seventh character will be added in the fall of 2022. Then we have to wait until 2023 for the eighth and ninth characters.

At least some of the DLC characters yet to be announced are likely to be popular picks from the survey. If Arc System Works is based purely on this research, then we can probably expect Slayer and Johnny to join in at some point.
