Check out this preview video! I changed my plans for her Maximum Overdrive, taking inspiration from Heidern in KOFXIV, because I thought it was cool and because my original plan seemed too similar to his Offense Drive.
Wish I could say they were! I've been trying to get animation bases from less obvious sources lately and it's good to know it's working.
For her Ascensio special I downloaded some rips of Nash from SFV and used his anti-air/Genocide Cutter type move, but changed the timing, the direction of the kick and made some other edits so it isn't so obviously the same move, since the function of her special isn't supposed to be a standard flash kick/GC type anti air, but more like Leona/Heidern's Moon Slasher. The Ascio animation is a a heavy edit of some of the frames along with some other stuff. Umbra is an edit of Leona's Neomax from KOFXIII and Rapide is a combination of frames from Heidern and Nash.
Vanessa is one of my favorite KOF characters but I hate those damn pants. Was really hoping they'd switch them back. Was there ever a storyline reason for her randomly switching to those pants and sandals?
I honestly think you could build one hell of an entire wrestling company around just the people they've released since last year. That much talent just wasted.
This batch of cuts saps my desire to keep watching even more than usual because Ruby Riott was my personal favorite. With her gone, Daniel Bryan gone and Keith Lee out indefinitely with some weird injury or illness, I just have no desire to tune in for anything other than NXT.
You pretty much nailed it, she's got a charge anti-air, a rekka, plus a quick shift/teleport that can travel forward, diagonally upward or straight upward with follow-ups. She's designed to move suddenly and swiftly while hitting you from different directions with a lot of quick, low damage attacks that add up fast.
Also I should note that I updated the file with a correction in the credits for her voice actor. I had also forgot to list her other command normal, Dragon's Tail, done by pressing B+HK in midair. She had the move the whole time, just forgot to include it in the read me.
Whoa those are some rookie mistakes on my part, maybe I should go back to having people beta test stuff for me. Thanks for the feedback, I just updated the link with a new version that fixes all those issues!
