I'm not the best person to give impressions as I'm not really a fan of fighters but I was actually quite enjoying it! Definitely looks beautiful and the cutscenes are very well drawn.

Wow just played a few rounds and I'm not a fan of fighters but if you played vector HD (other game by these devs) you'll know how smooth their animations are, this looks and plays very nice. Feels almost like a modern day karate champ with a bit of mortal kombat mixed in.
It's free2play so know doubt things will be over priced so you have to grind or pay up but I didn't mind that in vector so I'll stick with this for a while as it plays so nice. Well worth a download for nothing anyway.

Edit. It's handy being part Canadian, part kiwi, part Japanese, part English and a little American

i looked at version history...and the game was released last year ... why not worldwide yet?

edit: i tried the game. good graphics, bad gameplay ... the joystick dosent respond well, the character you controll is moving really slow, not fluid moves ...

I agree with what asd1234 said about the Game. The current Control System is currently often just unresponsible and sadly seem to response always a tick too slow

It's not supposed to be fluid like street fighter or something, that's why I said its feels like a modern day karate champ as your using the stick to input the commands to do moves not move your character around smoothly,

The more I'm playing this the more I'm liking it, it's got a F2P energy system but not being a huge fighting game fan I'm ok with only playing a few rounds and then coming back to it later.

I really liked the first Shadow Fight game on Facebook. I just wished it had a bit more depth and variety, and it looks like this game delivers that while keeping the overall quality that made the first one good. Looks like I'll be firing up the ole' NZ account tonight!

Oops, I meant CA account. Good thing I'm of "mixed heritage" as well!
