KoF XIII: Hwa Jai Combo Video (Final Version) By Persona

This combo video recently recorded and uploaded by Persona is the 2nd Hwa Jai combo video which places a bit more emphasis on style, and placing the opponent in stun than outright full damage (even though they are still very damaging).

Here are the notes from the description section of the video on Youtube:

“I’m glad I put most of the effort into the video the first time around since just watching this video already stresses me out on how much hair I had to pull out of my head back then. I didn’t add in the usual amount of combos I should have on all my KoF XIII videos so that’s where this final version comes into play. I focused more on style while still managing to easily do 100% damage but other than that, this is definitely as good as Hwa Jai can get, drunk or not drunk!”

Exploring KoF XIII dialogues: Mai and the Shiranui legacy

Even if you play KoF mostly for the competitive side of things and don’t really care about the game’s story, you must have at least spent some time in XIII’s Arcade mode to unlock Billy and Saiki. In the process, you may have read or skipped all the pre-match exchanges between every pair of characters that meets in the game’s Arcade mode.

Some of those conversations reference story elements from previous games, and not just from the KoF series, so new players might not be familiar with some of the referenced names and events. Since the stories and characters SNK has developed over the years are among the strongest aspects of their body of work, it’s worth trying to clarify some of them.

She doesn’t have a major role in KoF XIII’s primary story, but as a famous character she was heavily requested during XII’s release. Mai was therefore given considerable focus in XIII’s promotional materials, so she seems like an interesting character to start with.

In her match with Takuma, he mentions someone called Hanzo:
