Er... kinda, I guess. Kyo gets kidnapped by NESTS almost immediately after killing Orochi
. They extracted his DNA, hoping to harness his power. This gives birth to guys like K' and the K' children (such as Nameless), as well as the Anti-K' project (Kula and Isolde; a fail-safe in case K' defected, which he did). Krizalid was a clone of K'. He's beaten in '99
, and Zero's clone kills him. The real Zero, not enjoying the stories of his clone's delusions of grandeur and attempt to take over the cartel in 2000
, sets out to clear his name in 2001
. One of his Strikers is a clone of Krizalid.
Any fighters you recommend I play as? Strategies to keep in mind?
Some easier characters to use are Kyo, Iori, Terry, Ryo, Robert, and Yuri since they're more or less pseudo-Shotos. For the time being (unless they're your forte), stay away from grapplers like Clark, Vice, Blue Mary, Shermie, Angel, Tizoc, etc. It's also best to not use guys like Geese, who rely on counters
(not to mention that his Raging Storm
"The Pretzel" because it requires you to pretty much draw out a pretzel on the controller
; guys like K9999 and Duck King also have some pretty ridiculous inputs). You should know that a lot of characters are hybrid characters (i.e. both charge and command moves). As for gameplay, it's all about staying on your toes. KOF
is a lot faster paced than SF
, with running and a heavier emphasis on rushdown. Most characters tend to have chained attacks, moves that juggle a foe into the air for another hit, or attacks that hit a downed foe (for example, Kyo's claim-to-fame is his QCF attacks, which are a series of attacks stemming from one punch; he has multiple branches of moves, each with their own finishers). Also, there are only four buttons; two punches, two kicks. Many specials differ depending on which strength you use (for example, Geese's QCF + light punch is his Reppuken; QCF + heavy punch is his Double Reppuken). That's all I can think off. Just get out their and experiment like you would with any other fighter.
