There are also a plethora of one player challenge modes that also let you unlock a bunch of content. A lot of this content are colors and costumes, and that alone is cool. However, you can also take a stop in the game’s pose editor to customize your own taunts and poses. The American version adds an Arcade mode, which gives you a more traditional arcade experience and lets you earn in-game currency toward unlocks.

Other big draws to this version of the game include the extensive balance testing that Bandai Namco has done since the original Japanese version came out. Characters have new moves and new capabilities in this version that they didn’t before. Usually these involve special stand cancels and new move properties, but overall the whole roster is more balanced now than it was before.

On the downside, a number of DLC characters have been released for the Japanese version that just aren’t released here. This makes the starting roster of the game kind of disappointing. Not to mention you have to expend a whole lot of time unlocking other character by playing single player modes. It does feel like a chore that you have to go through in order to experience the full game, which is unfortunate.
