    Aw, they never show Vita support in these videos. Oh well. Now the debate is whether or not to buy this again… I didn’t really play the others all that much, despite loving fighting games. I should expand my horizons beyond Injustice.

    North America… yeah… whatever… this is why companies like bastardATLUS (NA division) and Aksys are not highly regarded in Europe.
