My Introduction:
Some beggining notes: My english is not like my italian. Perhaps I have done a 
little bit of confusion in some parts of the FAQ... Now let's begin:
"Rival Schools: United by Fate" is (I think) the coolest game that is ever be 
done (after the SNK's King of Fighter). It include at least 2 Basic Super 
Moves per character, a Super Team Attack and a lot of crazy Mighty Combos who 
can be done also IN AIR. The game is all in an amazing 3-D Graphic Engine 
makes up by the "Capcom 3-D Developement Group". Really, they have done a very 
good job!
The game has a "Gouround Shading" backgrounds and the fighters are completly 
textured.
You can pick-up another character (Tag-Team) but, unlike other similar game, 
YOU CAN CHOOSE IF YOU WANT TO USE HIM, so you can play all the time with only 
one character (the first)!
Another cool thing that I love a lot is the Recovery Roll: you can do it when 
you're beat by the opponent and you're falling on the ground. It's an effect 
very well done!
Stop now... Let's begin our fantastic trip in the world of "Rival Schools: 
United by Fate".
==============================================================================
=================
Basic Knowledgements:
The Main Character is the first you select.
If you finish the game, the Ending will be of the FIRST character. When you 
choose 2 fighters of the same High School, there will be some introduction 
sequences before the fight. 
Win with a Basic Move: A V-Icon will appear under the Energy Bar
Win with a Special Move: A Japanese Kanji will appear under the Energy Bar
With a Perfect: A P-Icon will appear under the Energy Bar
With a Super Team Attack: A Japanese Kanji with the number 2 will appear under 
the Energy Bar

The PSX Japan Version:
Note: I enclose my own translations, not the true ones. It’s not 
literally the same (I don't know japanese) but the meaning is the same.
The PSX Japan Version of this game have some innovations:
1) The Menus:
- Arcade Mode (Normal Arcade Mode) - Training Mode (You can try your moves)**
- Versus Mode (2 Player Versus Mode) - Options (Normal Options Menu)*** 
- Memory Card (For your savings)* - ? Box****
* Explanation of Japanese Kanji:
In this MODE you can do your savings: Loading Pictures, Options Configuration, 
Normal and Real Endings. The translations:
- Delete your last saving? Yes No (First)
- Do you wanna SAVE? Yes No (First)
- ?
- EXIT
Note: When you have done at least one saving, for the other times the Menu 
will ask you after the "Do you wanna save? Yes No" : "Are you sure? Overwrite 
No (First)". You must select "Overwrite".
** Some explanations:
When you're training, pushing STRART you'll access to a big menu screen... 
Here are the translations of Japanese Kanji:
Options:
- Continue Playing
- Character Moves
- Rules (+)
- Back on the Character Menu
- Back on the Main Menu
(+) Note for "Rules" Options:
- Position of the opponent: Standing, Crounching, Jumping
- ?
- ?
*** Explanation of Japanese Kanji:
It's hard to do this, do it istintively. The first sentence is the difficulty 
level of the CPU and for the others... Sincerly I dunno (sorry)
**** Expalnation of Japanese Kanji:
OK, now it's easier, I can do it... Let's go:
- FMV Sequences (First the basic FMV in PSX Version, second is the Arcade FMV 
sequence and the other nine are the Arcade FMV sequences with little 
variations).
- Here you can watch all the pictures of the game. Use "O" for go to the next 
picture, "X" for go back, "Triangle" for cancel the button menu screen and 
"START" to quit. There are 50 pics, you can save them all at the Memory Card 
Box.
- Here you can watch the CPU when fighting and learn some combos.
- Real Endings (Saveble)
- Normal Endings (Saveble)
- Project Justice (Savable)
- EXIT
2) Other New PSX Version Stuff:
- The first FMV Intro Sequence is now anime-style.
- In Arcade Mode you can pick up without the cheat Akira without the Elmet and 
Sakura
- In the Versus Mode there's 3 "?" boxes and 4 HIDDEN CHARACTERS!
- The Dual Shock is compatible but you can't use the Analog Stick
