    Pretty much like the last GBA game but with lots more options, may play a bit slow to some people but if you give it time it'll grow on you.

    Won't be playing this version though anymore, will just wait for the US version in May.

    It is but I reckon you'll need to know the language to make the most out of the game.

    echoing blahman's sentiments -- 64 Mbits ?! that's tiny .. hard to imagine how they managed to squeeze any sizable amount of content into that space.

    then again, mario 64 managed to squeeze into 128Mbits, but it's a concern, hmm.

    Famitsu blew this out of the water with a 22/40 as well.

    Famitsu is shit, might as well play it and make up your own mind. And it being 64Mbits isn't something to worry about... I don't think a single SNES game was that big, after all, and there are some absolutely fucking epics on that system.

    is this game from a dodgeball game on NES? I remember playing something similar on the NES at my friend's way back in the day

    Obviously the publisher didn't pay them enough.

    YES, yes they are!

    Gaaah, the game plays soooo slowly, though!!! [​IMG]

    And what's up with the inability to switch the person you're in control of? (like in the original NES version, you could hit the "duck" button to switch characters to control)

    Also, the "target" of your attack is always the guy closest to the line? Ugh...

    The old NES Super Dodgeball and Neo-Geo Super Dodgeball are still the best! [​IMG]

    I think you have to run then press a+ b to jump then a+b again to do the super throw but I may have check that

    Quick Hands on with Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu
    By Spencer . September 25, 2007 . 11:36am

    While 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.
