Traditionally, the game focuses on dynamic one-on-one battles that can be fought against AI or other players. The game was developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment, and it offers a classic fighting experience where the gameplay revolves around one-on-one battles. The game features three-dimensional maps, but the gameplay itself takes place in two dimensions. Players can choose from a rich gallery of characters, each with a unique fighting style and special techniques.
The single player option includes pure skirmishes against AI and an extensive story mode with a rich scenario and numerous cutscenes. On the other hand, multiplayer allows players to battle against each other on a shared screen or over the Internet. Both the characters and locations in the game are much more detailed than in the previous installment. Details such as raindrops running down the warriors’ faces or muscles tensing before a strike stand out.
