    Looks awesome. This will be my replacement for FighterZ.

    Hopefully it releases far enough from Cross Battle as to not get cannibalized. I want them to make money off of it to fuel my pipe dream of them developing a Melty Bread 2.

    Nice. Was thinking of importing it.

    Right after DBFZ to make sure it doesn’t sell a single copy. Thanks Aksys!

  • Mr0303

    At least I’ll be buying one instead of DBFZ.

    Theres a higher chance of Rin not being shit tier.
