Gameplay Overview

Hokutomaru is a mid-low tier character with all around moves based on speed moves.

His projectiles can be in ground or air, they are weaks but faster, his Kuuhadan its a good middle range anti air and also his blade move its quick and your main 2-in-1 combo meterless ender.

His corner game is one of his objetives due that their faint moves and breaks can be connected in a same corner combo, along with a command move that is your corner link.

His Super Move homage to Mai Shiranui its your anti air close combat tool and best corner combo ender, and the Projectile Spam Super Move its your midscreen combo ender.

He had low stamina as Hotaru or Freeman but his moves are useful to zone or rush, and his T.O.P. Attack its a bit awful.

T.O.P. Notes

This is a rising attack that is good for one hit and travels at a 45 degree angle. It has a slow start and can be used as an anti-air. Don't ever get this attack blocked!
