As I said, read up on the gendered marketing. It is why we had the whole gamegate nonesense to begin with. The fact games are being gendered is the one thing that gave birth to the many different issues we have in gaming that make women feel unwelcome.I mean. This is a fighting game which highly focuses on male market there. They title like for girls is literally to tell to its potential customer that this is the otome game that KoF fanbase would want to try if u like those husbando from KoF lore.
I just dont see how that naming alone is so troublematic. And again. No one said that male is not allowed to play the game here. I played Girl side and that had the gender plastered there at front.
And this particular game doesn't do itself any favour with this name because it A) forgets that gay men exist and might be I tweeted in dating guys from the SNK universe and B) makes the mainline game feel as if it is made for boys when the series should make everyone feel welcome to play it, regardless of who they are or what gender they are.
