Wow, as someone who always thought KoF was just a SF knock off, this video really set me straight. I’m actually really interested in the new KoF now.
Also, I may get neg-repped for this, but as someone who used to play SSBM competitively (and still play Tekken and SF2/4), the whole “short hop” thing really reminded me of Smash. Most characters in smash have aerial moves that’re better than their ground moves, so learning to short hop is essential in that game since you’ll be much more effect at applying pressure, combo’s, etc. and apparently, that’s the case in KoF also.
Looking forward to the next video man. Love the concept of Kyo (sorry if I got the name wrong) talking to the viewers and comparing KoF mechanics to mechanics from games we already know.
