This FAQ is to be considered a WORK IN PROGRESS. Any information contained within may be erroneous. I, Chris Comstock, am not affiliated with Capcom of Japan, Capcom of America, or Capcom of anywhere.
Any corrections would be appreciated, please e-mail bkk041@freenet.mb.ca or fill out the form at my Webpage (http://www.chriscomstock.home.ml.org)
Most of the info in this FAQ is from Capcom of Japan's website. Move names were taken from the move sticker on the American version(entirely from memory, errors may exist). At this time, some move names and super move names are unknown.


(1)  Introduction

(1.1) Game Overview

Basically, this game has got Capcom written all over it(a good thing).
It's a 3D fighter, with 15 fighters. The fighters are grouped into 5 schools.
You may pick 2 fighters, however they must be from the same school.
After each round(during the battle, i.e. after round 1) you may switch. But at the beginning of each battle(new opponent) you use the 1st character that you choose(ex. You pick Batsu then Kyosuke, then Batsu will always fight round 1.)
Justice HS only has 2 selectable fighters, however there's a 3rd unplayable one, possibly a boss/hidden char?

In respect to Super Moves- they all take 1 level to use.
Team supers use 2 levels. However, it requires a bit of explanation:
Each character in the game has a specific team super WHEN THEY ARE OFF-SCREEN.
Ex: You choose Batsu and Hinata. Hinata is fighting, you do a team super, it is Batsu's. When Batsu is fighting, it is Hinata's team super.
Each Team Super starts with an action. Keep in mind that regenerative supers(life/super bar charge) have the same action in all cases. If you know Dragonball Z(not the American version), it's like a transformation to Super Saiyan. The character stands up straight, and ki surrounds the character.
In other cases, it might be an uppercut, a rush-then grab, etc.
I hope to have all the actions, and full descriptions in a few weeks.

NB: 'ki' is the Japanese word for spirit, in this context it means fighting spirit.

(1.2) Button Layout
Basically it is a Tekken 2 layout.

	     (Start Buttons)
   O    wp   hp            O    wp   hp
   |                       |
  ---   wk   hk           ---   wk   hk

wp=weak punch
hp=heavy punch
wk=weak kick
hk=heavy kick

NOTE: The Start Button is the chouhatsu (provoke) button.
(1.3) Abbreviations I use


wp=weak punch
hp=heavy punch
wk=weak kick
hk=heavy kick
u=up
d=down
f=Forward/towards
b=Back/away
