There are no extra colors to unlock AFAIK.

Mian's design is so good and her high flying gameplay has a lot of potential.

Most, if not all, should be in there.

Of course not.

You don't unlock them at all. There are 4 colors per character and they are available from the getgo.

The only things you can unlock are the two bosses, one stage, and artwork. Just beat the story mode once to get the bosses and the stage available.

I just picked it up and played through the tutorial and story mode once with the girls team. I have to say, I'm really digging it -- from the animation to the music, I feel like this is the best KOF I've played in awhile. I'm a casual player, though -- so, take that as you will. It also just feels so much more complete than SFV. I bought both, and as of now, this easily replaces it for me. Which is really weird, because I've always been more of a Street Fighter fan ...

I have a question though, both Hellpockets in his article in the OP and LI Joe in his stream mentioned that Climaxes can be done raw or when cancelled from an EX super (level 2), but I'm able to cancel level 1s into climax in the demo for Kyo and Iori. Is this something that's been changed for the final build?

You can cancel into a Climax DM from special moves, regular supers and EX supers.

The exception are EX special moves, which cannot be super-canceled or climax-canceled.

PATCH DOWNLOADED! I STARTED THE GAME.... 12 MINUTES LEFT FOR THE INSTALL!!! MY BURNING! I WANT IT ON THE OUTSIDE NOW!!! (???) It's funny it has an install timer in game. Is this common? I'm never in much of a rush to play PS4 games, I normally just jump back to XB1 while I assume it's installing... but this... this is SPECIAL.

Haha, thanks for noticing it :) Sure it's no KoF XIII or such stuff, but I had fun making it in a hybrid of my style mixed with a bit of Ogura's colors / style of 2K2UM thrown in there.

This leads me to say I LOVE THE ARTBOOK the burn to fight edition comes with. The Linework is REALLY AWESOME in the book. Seeing Gang-Il show off emotions I've yet to see in game is sweet. Love how they said the women staff didn't get the appeal of his older male design, haha.

Heard this happened earlier, always glad to see this carried on FOR NO REASON, lol. The artbook says we have Ogura to blame for Leona's chest "Robustness", and they noticed the stunning animation was very popular on the Internet... EL Oh EL

I'm having some trouble with the tutorial if anyone can help me out: I'm stuck on the super cancel lesson and just can't wrap my head around it. I'm sure it's easy, but I'm not exactly sure what to do. In another thread I was told I can hold down the attack button, but I'm just not sure of the timing.

I tried watching some YouTube videos of the tutorials, but a lot of the players fly right through it so I can't tell what I'm doing differently.

I was trying to play but I got tha warning.
So far online has been a hit and miss.
Sometimes I get some really good matches and connections but then it goes to hell in other ones. So it's fairly like in other fighting games.

I tried watching some videos of the tutorials, but a lot of it moves too fast so I can't tell what I'm doing differently.

In the tutorial Kyo super-cancels his dragon punch into his punch super (QCF QCF+P).

The motions for the dragon punch and the super overlap so you can combine them. Instead of doing the DP and then QCF QCF+P for the super, just do this:

1. Do the DP
2. When the DP hits do QCF+P (and hold P)

The first QCF is in the DP so for the super you just do one more QCF to get it.

Holding punch puts the motion in memory and makes the super come out even if you do the motion too early.

Okay, that makes sense. I can't seem to do it in one motion though. I do the DP but once the animation starts I can't do the QCF+P until the other fighter(E: Irori, I'm an idiot) hits the ground.

No, no, you are canceling the DP. This means you have to input the QCF+P the instant the DP is hitting the opponent. This cancels the animation of the DP into the super.

In the pause menu there should be an option which plays out the super-canel tutorial for you, watch it to see when the super activates after the DP. You will notice it is the moment Kyo's DP hits the opponent. This is when you should be super-canceling.

So do the DP then immediately do the QCF+P and hold the P for the super.

Hmm, I'm watching videos and I can see that, yeah. I guess I'm just not inputting it the QCF + P fast enough. Will give it some practice then.
