Guilty Gear Strive has sold over 500,000 copies since its launch on the 11th June, Arc System Works has confirmed. Last we heard, the superb fighting game had hit 300,000 sales in less than a week of its release, so that's an additional 200,000 or so units within the space of a month. Not bad at all.
The developer posted the above illustration on social media to celebrate — and we love it. Ky's using a fight stick with a noticeable degree of elegance, which Sol looks close to crushing his controller. Hopefully Strive continues to rack up sales — just so that we get to see more artwork like this!
Oh, and Strive's first DLC character will be revealed next week, on the 20th July. The announcement will be livestreamed on Arc System Works' YouTube channel at 6PM PST / 9PM EST / 2AM BST / 3AM CEST / 10AM JST (technically on the 21st July here in Europe and in Japan). If you won't be able to catch the reveal live, don't worry — we'll have all the news here on Push Square.
