Guilty Gear Strive Dual Rulers Anime: What will be different from the game’s story mode

Guilty Gear Strive game also has a story mode but it worked as a disappointment for the fans. If you remember Tekken’s journey from beginning to now, the story mode is completely insane. You get to fight the villains, you get to interact with other characters and what not.

However, when it comes to Guilty Gear Strive, the story mode is nothing but a montage of anime clips that make up a story – and yes, it is non-playable. And it also fails to give a proper catchup of the background unlike Tekken 8’s story mode. On a conclusive note, entering the Guilty Gear Strive story mode is similar to watching a short anime movie.

That being said, the hopes for Guilty Gear Strive Dual Rulers anime will be high, and why not? Because there’s a lot of competition out there. And at least the fans can expect a better story than what they got to see in the name of story mode. And yes, we will be back on July 5 with more info on the upcoming anime, so do bookmark this article to read about all the latest developments.
