    Just for those who don’t know already, but if you own a PS3 and 360 get the PS3 version because the 360 version cuts out the interactive avatar lobbies and you still pay the same price.

    Also localization won’t have dual audio for story mode.

      Surprised a 360 version even got made.

        Fighting games competitive community is generally over Xbox Live in NA/EU. People assume “Oh PS3 pad is better” but you have to consider that many higher level players use arcade sticks, so the controller preference is irrelevant.

        Anime fighter players are mainly on PSN though, but it would be silly to not include Xbox 360 just because Japan, a completely different region, doesn’t care much for fighting games on it.

    I love these videos but I still know I’m going to be reading dustloop forums like a college text book

    Step 1) Did you pick Shadow Naoto?
    Step 2) If you answered no to step 1, do it.
    Step 3) Get full meter
    Step 4) Win.

      Broken scrub level confirmed. lol

      Its hilarious how Shadow characters are ridiculously strong than normal characters. I’m lookin at you Naoto, Chie, Mitusru.

        In some cases yeah, but others are pretty bad. I was hoping Shadow Kanji would be better because it would be hilarious to see that in tournaments, but sadly like most grapplers in games, not even a Shadow can save them. Clearly they should’ve given him EX Green Hands from Zangief.

        • Sky

          All you have to do is focus on gaining shadow meter for Kanji. Then cancel into combos by ending that combo into that big damaged super. Its basically it for S. Kanji.

          • 하세요

            That’s basically it for every Shadow character, just others do it significantly better than him and still do fine outside of Shadow mode.

  • Man, this game looks awesome.

  • Nu Blitz

    this game wasnt that fun to play, but seeing the shadow frenzy makes me want to play it now

  • Black Heaven

    I have a question…

    Does anyone know if P4AU will have an R3 physical retail? And will it also include the Day 1 DLCs like Adachi?

  • Ronldbx6

    I thought arc system fighting games like these were to complicated for me to learn. The tutorials definitely decreased my intimidation to try.
