There are some more videos of the location test here, but no others of Ries or Roa that I can find as of yet (though I’m welcome to be proven wrong). For being controlled by the CPU against a pretty substandard Len, I guess Ries looks alright. Len’s new ice shield (ground or air!) and little flair projectile both excite me, though it’s still in the location testing phase so… nothing is really set as anything yet. Ries kind of makes me think of Samurai Shodown’s Haohmaru from what I’ve seen thus far. It could just be the spinning slash uppercut though. It looks like most people are getting quite a few new moves and changes to how they play. Full Moon Warachia is almost unrecognizable. All of Akiha’s specials are crazy souped up too, in Crescent and Full.
