Playing it in Canada
The layout of the game reminds me a lot of Skullgirls of course not exact clone but if you are familiar with Skullgirls as far as the story mode etc you will notice some similarities
I like it
I liked Skullgirls and always been a Tekken fan
So if you want a taste of Tekken just play Skullgirls

Very exciting to see this come along, I hope the controls hold up on a touch device.

Traditional fighter (Street Fighter IV Champion Edition, Soul Calibur for iOS, Kinetic Damage) or a simplified swipe-brawler a la Injustice, Marvel, Skullgirls, etc?

this is a simplified brawler as you put it, like injustice etc. People complaining about the cards, they are just in place of Specials 123. Otherwise its tap, swipe, hold exactly like IJ. Been a massive Tekken fan until T4, so gonna try this for some time.
Cant comment in Iaps etc yet, hopefully they will be at IJ / MK levels and not worse (IJ2,Skullgirls)

Finally, we can play a tap swipe app with a Tekken skin and character levels with elemental attributes and card shards attached to RNG crystals and skill points for skill trees and a dual currency system. Don't forget to buy potions for your heroes, because once they run out of stamina, you'll just have to sit there and wait! Do you have any idea how much it absolutely devastates me to see Tekken looking this good in motion on my phone, but to have it be the most generic morally dubious freemium tapper in disguise fighter instead of the real deal? I'm living in some sort of cruel bizarro joke world you'd see in a cartoon, but it's real life.

Yeah, while the prospect of seeing something that resembles a console fighter on my phone screen is hard tor resist, I think Iím out for this one. Not only for the simplified controls and mechanics, but also since the emphasis on grind-based progression and upgrading is anathema to skill-based play and balanced difficulty. (In a game where progression is the primary driver of IAP sales and profit, there is a constant incentive for the developer to artificially inflate challenge levels.)

Thanks for the explanation, though! As far as swipe-brawlers go, this seems to be right up there with the best.
