Quick Hands on with Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu


dbds.jpgWhile I was waiting to meet with Arc System Works I grabbed one of the two DSes loaded up with Chou Nekketsu Koukou Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu. I was rather surprised with the way Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu stuck with NES style controls. You use B to throw/catch and A+B makes your character jump.


The key to Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu was to do the spinning super shot, which morphed the dodge ball into a glowing ball of fire. However, to do this maneuver you need to tap right to dash, forward press A+B to jump and finish by pressing another button throw the dodge ball at the peak of your jump. It seemed needlessly complicated and even one of the designers was having trouble demonstrating the special shot for me.


After a few mess-ups I got a hang of the button timing and the super shot made me nearly unstoppable. Between that and catches the match was over way to quickly, but just in time to chat about the fate of Guilty Gear II.
