Following the Direct, several Twitter users expressed their love for Princess Charm’s character design and personality with some even saying she was the highlight of the Direct. For example, user @DeadMii tweeted she was “the highlight of the Direct,” gaining over 500 retweets and 3,600 likes (shown below, left). User @InsertNameHRM tweeted, “The only thing i ever cared about the Direct,” gaining over 40 retweets and 200 likes (shown below, right).
In a now-deleted Tweet, Anaïs Maamar, the animator behind the Princess Charm segment of the Knockout City trailer, revealed that she didn’t even know which game her animations would be used for (shown below).
Later posts from her account clarified that her posts were deleted because the animation studios that worked on the trailer were not credited by EA and that she was shocked by the amount of pornography Princess Charm already had within 24 hours of the trailer’s release (shown below).
In the days following the Direct, several people across the internet expressed that Princess Charm should have her own game. The video game news site Kotaku echoed this sentiment publishing an article called “A Princess Charm Game Would be Great, Thanks.”
So I kinda love the girl from that Knockout City ad and I want her to get a full game SO badly
