The Cute Girls Get Cuter! The Butt Kicking Is More Intense!

The girls of Asuka 120% are back with a vengance! And this time they got anew contender; Ichiko Furutachi, that girl who keeps popping up and doinginterviews had just had it with sitting in the sidelines. So she decides to getthese interviews whether everyone else likes it or not.

A whole new arsenal of moves have been added to most of the fighters. Thosewho had one super move now have two of them.

The gameplay has also been refined. There's not much in the term of "launching"anymore, just comboing. Comboing and more comboing! And when you presstaunt while your fighter is 120%, she goes "V-ism" on you. The screen goesdark, shadows follow you, and anything you connect with does a double hit fortwice the damage!

The voices have been refined as well. For the worst, but whoever had someEnglish to say can be understood now. And the new win-poses... Seems likesomeone over there at Family Soft (What happened to ASK Kodansha?) wants tomake sure they grab your attention.

Well, the end of the millenium is coming. With the advent of 3D gamesfilling the shelves, all those who are experts in 2D are going out with theloudest bang possible. But I don't think there's a need to. There's stillgoing to be a market out there for 2D fighting games. And hopefully when wenext see Asuka and her girlfriends (and girl-rivals), they'll either be incollege or have good jobs; and yet still kick butt.
