I guess we have been told that homebrew discussion isnt allowed in our TvC thread, **so take all questions about homebrew and wii modding to the tech talk forums. **
This game is for Wii, and ships on Dec 11th. It is currently not coming to any other system at all.
This game has FOUR buttons, configured in this layout:
(A) = Weak Attack
(B) = Medium Attack
© = Heavy Attack
(T) = Tag [sometimes called § for Partner, but its the same button]
(T) = Assist
Back+(T) = Tag out
(Attack)+(T) = Baroque Activation (uses all of your red life)
QCF+(T) = Aircombo Tag (uses 1 level of meter)
(A)+(B)+© = Dash shortcut (hold Up+Forward and do this to Instant Air Dash)
(A)+(B)+© while guarding = Advance Guard (Push Block)
(A)+(B)+©+(T) = Mega Crush (A combo breaker, takes 2 levels of meter and some Yellow life)
QCD+(T) while guarding = Variable Counter (an alpha counter tag, takes one meter)
It is also known that you can do a Variable Combination Super (Both characters super together), Delayed Hyper Combo (like MvC2), and Snapback (like MvC2).
All characters can double jump and air dash.
Launchers are all done using DF+©.
Specials can be canceled into Supers.
Just to let you all know a little more about Baroque;
Activation uses all of your Red life. The duration of the effect does not seem based on how much red life you had, it seems set. Activation cancels any special or normal move you were in into a nuetral state, so it works as a roman cancel. For the duration of the glowing on your character, you will deal bonus damage proportionate to the amount of red life you used to activate. In a combo, where hits are heavily scaled already, this is not as noticable. But consider punishing someone’s wiffed attack with a naked BAROQUE xx SHINKUU HADOUKEN. We saw this do 80% once at the Evo build. I dont know if things this dramatic can still happen in the final build, but you can bet your ass ill be testing it when I get my hands on it.
So a typical combo for any character is going to be
(Ground chain) -> (assist hits) -> (dash in a do same ground chain) xx (Baroque) -> (dash in and do the same ground chain) -> (launcher into air combo into super or just super)
Keep the discussion on topic.
