Backflip Kick from KI 2
« on: November 15, 2013, 06:56:57 AM »

Am I the only one who loved the backflip kick from the KI 2 Sabrewulf and wants it as a regular move instead of that boring uppercut he has again in KI 3? It would give Sabrewulf so much more style!

I agree, some of the move sets have more variety then others.

Yeah and with today's technology, we can make it look realistic as opposed to then.

Sabrewulf Backflip kick was very useful for a lot of situations especially anti airs, but I always loved linking the super backflip to end my ultra's!! 8)

I'm assuming they gave him the uppercut since it's a reboot of KI, probably wanted to start off with the basics...I guess, but it's cool to see the backflip as an ultra ender in the reboot, but it'll only be 2 seconds of nostalgia.  :(

I didn't watched that much vids lately, but it looks like Orchid for example has one of her KI 2 moves back, why not Sabrewulf too?
I loved KI 2 Sabrewulf back then, because he had his own style. That boring uppercut pisses me off and leaves me much less desired about my alltime favourite fighting character.
Just look at his move set, when he fights he just uses his upper extremities all the time. Yes, it makes sense for an Werewolf character to fight with his claws most of the time, but its onesided too. The Backflip gave KI 2 Sabrewulf that much needed variety in style.
Even if it seems like a small detail, its a huge disappointment for me.

Same here. I'm not trying to think to far ahead, but if they ever had a rebalanced update, it should include the backflip kick...just a suggestion.
