Impressions: Arc 3B cancellable now? 2C 623B launcher is probably gone as they were using 4B to launch instead.
Akiha’s still a dominating force. Some crazy crossup games with her air flame ribbons.
Game seems slightly slower. Whiff cancelling’s still useful, but 2As seem slightly less dominant.
The new presentation and sfx are pretty sharp.
Air to air counterhits don’t seem to force untechable state, which is good. AkaAkiha’s OTG game seems to be gone?
Damage levels seem to be toned down in general, or maybe 2 is the new default.
Shielding definitely easier now. This may make the game a lot deeper than MBR alone because shielding was so damn hard to use effectively there.
Grabs still seem to have lame range. (2:15 on 09.wmv)
Looking forward to this making a console release or a patched rerelease of MBR.
