Kill la Kill is an adaption of a popular anime where clothes are magical and less the better in this universe. I was a fan of the anime series with the visual style and animation and was hoping that this game was able to faithfully represent the anime.
Kill la Kill – If is a rock, paper, scissors fighting game and with the help of the publisher Arc System Works who are known for fighting games which has most likely helped polish out some of the bugs a studio finds when they first make a fighting game. Kill la Kill – If – is a beautiful and smooth fighting game.
In combat, you have standard moves such as close, long-range and charged attacks. You can also jump with one of the buttons and double-tap it to dash towards the enemy. Blocking adds the final layer to the mix but it also throws in a load of combos.
Kill la KIll If has a wide range of different combo attacks and more than the usual fighting games. Rather than basic combos, you can follow up with even more by changing the directional input while attacking and it means you can create some advanced combinations of attacks by using these in different sets.
The strategies are also further complex thanks to each character playing so differently. Some characters focus on close-range attacks while others deal more with long-range damage. Some have more advanced special moves that can be used to trick your enemies.
