Guilty Gear Strive charted twice on Steam last week but failed to make it a one-two clean sweep thanks to a resurgent It Takes Two.
The video game world has been allowed to take a breath today and digest everything it has seen between last Thursday and last night. From the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade to the closing presentation at E3, there has been an awful lot to take in over the course of six days. One of those things has been the release of Guilty Gear Strive.
While Strive didn’t make much of a dent in terms of physical sales, entering the UK charts at number 26, it registered big numbers on Steam. Strive’s standard edition debuted at number one in last week’s Steam chart despite only being on the market for three of the seven days.
In fact, Strive actually managed to chart twice. Since Steam registers different versions of the same game as separate titles, Strive’s Deluxe Edition debuted at number three. If it hadn’t have been for It Takes Two surging back up the chart and sitting pretty at number two, Strive’s Standard and Deluxe Editions would have comfortably taken spots number one and two respectively.
It Takes Two has a 25% discount on Steam to thank for its march back up to number two. However, that sale is now over which likely means it will find itself dropping a few places by the end of the week. Right outside of that top three was Battlefield 2042. Despite not being released until October 2021, people are clearly pretty enamored by its new gameplay trailer and have been pre-ordering it on Steam well ahead of time.
Even though Strive has registered a much higher chart position on Steam than it has elsewhere, it seems to be performing well across the board. The fighting game has already shipped 300,000 units.

Plus, if you’re looking for what might well be the perfect couch co-op game, check out It Takes Two if you haven’t already. On sale or not, it is certainly worth your time.
