Leona and Shermie are clearly talking to each other in the pre-boss-fight dialog, while Athena and Terry seem to be shouting things at the boss which don't reference their teammate in any way and could be interchanged with other characters.



    Not sure if this is the case with the Switch, but the PS4 lets you play while installing the game and doesn't tell you it's installing. Once the install finishes on the PS4, the performance glitches go away.
    Nah it's installed all the updates already....it just runs like ass on Switch.

    Yikes, here's hoping the Switch gets patched.

    Overall impression: This is a nice, fun departure from the norm for SNK, but shouldn't have been treated as a major release. I think if it had been released as a $20 indy-like game it would get a decent reception for what it is, but for $50 it should have had a ton of modes a la Smash. This thread was mostly about the roster leading up to the release, but it is really the gameplay variety and not the roster that is going to be the problem.

    Now that I've played the Switch version, a few thoughts...

    The controls for this game are a complete mystery to me. I've got moves coming out all over the place, and just hoping they are timed correctly for a combo. It's weird to have all these KOF moves coming out without doing any of the motions for them.

    You're supposed to press R or something to end the matches when the opponent is in the red, right? But that doesn't really seem to be working for me so far. I've been able to end some of the matches by mashing all the shoulder buttons and tagging like crazy in the process until finally a finishing move comes out. I gave up and quit after only winning 3-4 matches. A little help here please?

    So Kukri, the villain, made all the characters dress in the pervy clothes? Wouldn't that make the villain an ally of the hentai player's wishes? So really the bad guy is the good guy to the target audience.

    There's no way the Switch version is running in 1080p when docked, it's way too shimmery. It must be 720p, or at least lack any anti-aliasing. Looks pretty poor by today's standards.

    Alec, you have to end the match with a finisher using R on Switch, R1 on PS4. You need magic meter to do this though, which builds over time and as you take damage. If you press A (or Square) you do a special move, which uses magic meter, so if you keep pressing this you won't have enough meter to do your finish.

    At least that's what I understand so far. I hope it helps.

    I'm enjoying the game for what it is. It's not going to end up main eventing at Evo, but it's a fun little distraction.

    One more thing is that the character who is tagged out automatically builds meter. So if your R1 finisher isn't working, use R2 (not sure what Switch control is) to tag in your other character and then try it. If it whiffs, then wait a little while for the tagged out character's meter to rebuild and then repeat. Also note that a lot (all?) of characters have more than 1 finisher, the command list will show the additional ones. (down+R1, etc)

    On the topic of Kukri, this game may ruin him for everyone. I used to run him in one of my main KOFXIV teams, but it's hard to justify spending several hours perfecting combos for pervy-boy.

    The face buttons are punch, kick, throw, and special. The special button has 5 special moves tied to it. Either press it by itself or press a U,D,L or R direction with it for a different special. When your magic meter is full, you can use a super. You can use a super by pressing the R button. When your life bar is blinking and you have full meter you can press down and R for a stronger special.

    I returned mine this morning. I'll grab it when it's $20 on PS4.

    This game sounds like complete shit. Shame they couldn't do a sequel to Gal's Fighter instead.

    That is exactly what this is. a novelty or a distraction.

    i completely forgot i preordered this and after the update downloaded i'm super underwhelmed. It has some moments, but its basically an excuse for scantily clad fighting girls. its a less good doa with one button combo/ specials/ finishes.

    From looking over this thread, it's disheartening to see the Switch version have those issues. Having a game like this on the run would be fun. Any word on a patch or fix?

    Wish I had read reviews of this game and cancelled my preorder... Overall I am completely disappointed with this game. I was thinking it would have the gameplay of KOF XIV but only have female characters. Instead we get a watered down button masher with no depth to the gameplay along with lame special effects with every attack and a storyline that makes no sense. I figured the game would be a little over the top and cheesy coming from NISA but I didn't think it would be this bad. Worst money I've spent on a game in a long time.

    It's literally the best I could do. It made no sense, and while I don't object to a female Terry, the game just makes no sense.

    I may still buy this game IF SNK releases some nice fappable DLC costumes.

    However, at this point I haven’t really felt compelled to rub one out yet, especially not when I have DOA 5 LR.

    SNK could learn a thing or two from Team Ninja.

    Skullomania has been announced as the second crossover character. Bold choice, I dig it.

    So there are three versions of this character? OG Miss-X, post-op Miss X and... Kyo fan-girl... ?

    I am guessing these are merely costumes?
