These systems return to the fold after more than 25 years and have evolved for the modern world. Get ready for hot action and competitive fights to the finish!

Control schemes adapted to experience:

Players can choose between two control schemes: Arcade Style relies on precise and technical inputs, while Smart Style lets you perform special moves and flashy combos using directional inputs and single button presses. From fighting game newbies to seasoned veterans, everyone will have the right controls, specifically tailored to their level.
