Developed by DreamFactory whose chairmen is Seiichi Ishii, an industry veteran who served as an early designer and director for two legendary fighting game franchises, Virtua Fighter and the ever popular Tekken. The characters designs are done by my favorite artist, Tetsuya Nomura.
The story is your typical fighting game story, there's a world tournament with a prize (this time a super sword!), and basically fighters from the world over come to participate because that's what they do. No one remembers fighter games stories, so let’s get to the gameplay!
