Mr. Karate

KOFXIII-Mr. Karate Face.png

In a nutshell

The infamous alter-ego of Takuma appears once again as DLC, having not been seen since SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. This "EX" version of Takuma plays like a combination of his 2002 self and the eventual successor to his fighting style: Khushnood Butt/Marco Rodriguez from Garou: Mark of the Wolves. While normal Takuma takes a balanced approach, Mr. Karate is pure, unadulterated rushdown. His DPs can be canceled for combo potential, and his fireballs are both invisible and can be dash-canceled from. He lost the ability to use his Hien Shippu Kyaku on the ground, but gained an old friend in the form of his Shoran Kyaku from '98. Your goal will Mr. Karate will be to constantly stay on your opponent, never letting up your pressure for one second until they are broken down, allowing you to go in for absurdly strong combos.

To select Mr. Karate, highlight Takuma and hit the Back/Select button after downloading him.
