In 2nd Impact, Ken is very similar to his 3S counterpart. He has plenty of ways to combo into super art 3, though shoto crouching forward kick doesn't have as much range as in 3S, and it's harder to cancel. His jumping forward kick cross up is harder to land, and he lacks double shoryus. Regardless, Ken is still quite a solid contender in 2I. Super art 1 is also considered a good choice in this game.
