The footage highlights the following new skills:
Sol Badguy – “Heavy Mob Cemetery”
An extremely powerful and invincible rush attack with long reach in which Sol transforms into a monstrous figure and attacks. Since timing is not an issue, you can easily activate it between the opponent’s attacks.
Ky Kiske – “Dragon Install”
Just like “Heavy Mob Cemetery,” this skill transforms Ky into a monstrous figure, but significantly strengthens a number of his specials. It also emits a shockwave upon activation that blows back the opponent, so hitting them at the edge of the screen can trigger a wall break that moves the battle to a new area.
Axl Low – “One Vision”
Manipulates time and stops the opponent for a limited amount of time. This attack stops the opponent when the command is input a second time via a prepared motion. The stop attack can even be activated in mid-air and derive from any skill including specials.
