II EHRGEIZ' Story 


Fifty years ago, a sword with a mysterious "Materia" was found in the ruins of 
an ancient German castle. The blade of the sword was broken, and a mysterious 
stone was set in its handle. The weapon took the name "Ehrgeiz" and became the 
symbol for a tournament, which would decide the world's strongest fighter. The 
sword was presented to the champion as a trophy. Meanwhile, a secret excavation 
of a Middle Eastern desert ruin was ordered by a secret organization called "Red 
Scorpion". It was rumored that the ruins contained the secret of immortality. As 
a front, Red Scorpion claimed to be an international organization established to 
protect international archaeological treasures and ruins. In reality, they are a 
weapons manufacturer collaborating to develop bio-weapons. They hope to 
rediscover and use the technology founded by hyper-ancient cultures. After 
months of excavating, Red Scorpion located the ancient ruins. They located a 
door to the ruin but it couldn't be opened. A special key was needed... Does the 
key still exist? If so, where is it? The strongest theory points to a mysterious 
stone set in the EHRGEIZ sword. On the same day the door was discovered, the 
EHRGEIZ stone radiated an eerie luster and brilliance. Legend says those who 
come in contact with the stone will be overwhelmed with a burning desire to 
answer a mysterious calling. Koji Masuda, the defending and consecutive three-
time champion is the current holder of the EHRGEIZ. Like a magnet, the sword 
navigates Koji to the Middle East and eventually the ancient ruin. The Red 
Guardians are not at all pleased by this intrusion onto their secret finding. 
Disregarding the call of the sword, he has no choice but to flee the Middle 
East. If caught he would surely be executed. Koji now realized the danger of the 
tournament and the sword. It's far mere than a symbol of fighting experience. 
Understanding the sword brings danger to his life, Koji reluctantly decides to 
withdraw from the tournament and relinquish his right to the sword. In a letter 
to his daughter Yoko Masuda, Koji asks her to succeed his will and use her 
martial art skills to regain the sword. But news of the mysterious stone has 
traveled afar and now many more have the curiosity to seek it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VI Basic Movement


Running: Just hold in the direction you wish to run.

Blocking: Hold G (low block) or just stand in a neutral position (high  block).

Fully Crouch: Hold G.

Jumping: Tap joystick twice in direction your character is facing or hold G and 
push S (hold G+S to jump higher). 

Step: Once fully crouched, tap in any direction.

Throwing: Must be performed in close range! Hold H+L+G, for special throw do 
full circle with the stick and hold H+L+G. You can also perform a throw while 
running.

Rolling: When on ground, just push direction you wish to roll. Push G to get up; 
push H and/or L to do a get-up attack; or let go of the joystick and your 
character will get up. When you are standing, hold G and tap the joystick twice 
in the direction you want to roll. 

Counter: Varies, mostly s right upon impact of hit (g with Sasuke). 

Special Objects: Boxes and such can be found on some stages. Break them by 
pushing H+L+G when up close and you character will grab it and throw it at your 
opponent or you can just hit the box with a low attack at any direction you 
want.

Alternate Costume: Hold Up and press G during the character select screen.

Rope-a-Dope: Hold G and move around. The AI still thinks you are running, so you 
can try many things like throwing, combos, etc.

Two-Hand Grab: When someone attacks you with a sword, you can do a Two-Hand 
Grab, your character will grab the opponent's sword, then throw the person over 
while holding sword. To get out of a Two-Hand Grab, push L when the opponent is 
about to throw you over and you character should land safely to the side. I 
don't know how to do a Two-Hand Grab...but I think it is G+H+S, I'm not sure.
