Game Introduction

This game has excellent anime throughout. There are thirteen characters to choose from. Since the game only uses three buttons, it installes easily into a regular JAMMA cabinet (no additional wiring, everything goes through the JAMMA harness).

Game Play

The combo moves do not require you to memorize a string of six to twelve button and joystick combinations like other fighters. A decent strong combo attack can be performed most of the time with a three button combo. Most characters share well over 50 percent of their basic combo attacks, so learning to play a different character does not take long. Some characters are better played as long range fighters, others are better in close-up combat.
