    It's a mixture of 3 in 1 for example Rhythm/Fighting and Beat 'em up I think.

    I checked out some footage on youtube. Looks like there are only 4 characters (one for each element or something) and it doesn't seem rhythm based >_>

    It looks like the combo system is rhythm based, or at least it's dressed up like it is. It doesn't seem to be purely a 1 on 1 fighting game, there appear to be parts where you are fighting multiple enemies in a side scrolling level. That part looked sort of like Guardian Heroes.

    I hope this game doesn't suck, I like this sort of thing.

    Just played it, there seems to be a story mode where you wander around talking to people and doing... stuff, I guess. I couldn't tell what was going on. Lots of text.

    I did find an option to just fight a match, but I got my ass handed to me because I couldn't read any of the stuff about how to play.

    The graphics are nice though.

    from the trailers, looks to be too complicated to try, but I want to try another fighter. It looks like its going to feel like JUS but your combos are based on timings of the buttons? I don't know I'll try later and see how it is...

    It is really annoying how cocky Swedish people got, just because they are economically successful [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So far the little I've played it
    Y and A attack.
    B to jump.

    R is to guard.
    L starts a beat combo then hit Y quickly depending on the beat. If successful you'll do a whoop ass combo attack.
    It's important to get the timing correctly though. Also something about pressing UP on Dpad.

    BP (beat points) you can construct customized beat combos.

    edit: after playing this more I've come to a couple of conclusions

    • If you can't read Japanese this will be a frustrating experience for sure
    • This is a mediocre game at best but to me I'll give it a pass.
