     About the victory poses: After a round, during the Replay, the
     player can hold one of the four buttons to choose the character's
     victory pose after the Replay. In an one-player game, the player
     can hold one of the buttons on the other player's side to choose
     the CPU character's victory pose. The players can tap the Start
     buttons to skip the Replay and victory pose. VF3 doesn't seem to
     have the slow-motion Replay option (hold G+P+K) from VF2.
