Gameplay Overview

Kensou is a well-rounded versatile character who has access to a fireball and some good anti air tools. Kensou can check opponents at bay with fireballs that can be then used to super cancelled into QCFx2+A/C to dissuade them from jumping in at him. He has access to some good long range ground pokes and decent air to air tools. With easy confirms and overall good pressure tools up close, Kensou can really lay hurt on his opponents.
