Thanks for your answers guys. Looks to me like Billy will make a great addition to the cast.

Yeah his f+K (the pole vault) puts the opponent into juggle state, you can follow up with a d+P or special move.

I tried to do his hcf+P against King's fireball but it doesn't cancel out projectiles as far as i can tell.


Does his Senpuukon move stop projectiles still, and does he have any variation of this move like he did in 98?

I've tried it a couple of times, so far it doesn't seem like it does cancel projectiles. (Actually quite difficult to force cpu to do fireballs xD)

There isn't a variation of it, not even an EX version as far as i can tell.

Something kinda interesting (non gameplay-wise) i discovered whilst trying this out though is if you keep doing his senpuukon eventually he does a little animation at the end. (Has recovery, but looks quite cool.) I'll try to remember to video it when i get home.

Knowing them, this may very well be his move list on the console as well. Gonna be interesting to see how he shapes up.
You're too slow!!

Spent most of this afternoon putting together a little combo video for Billy Kane, nothing too complicated just a few small combos and cancels, once i start trying to learn HD combos (unlikely on the touch screen LOL) then maybe i'll update it again.

billy just got his old ff1,2,s stance back. im not hating, but its not as good as his 97 stance imo. hge still does look good though.
In the end, there can only be XIII.

I think he says "Are you ok?" at the start of his neomax *mind blown* Billy is Terry?

Funny vids to watch, thanks.

I was talking with one of the a-cho guys (Peko) who had just recently bought the iPhone game. He told me that, if Billy isn't rebalanced for the console version, he sees him ending up in the same tier as K' and Raiden.

Obviously just a first impression, but I felt it was worth sharing.

From what I heard from Kula yesterday Billy's gonna be on his team too...

If there's no Geese or Eiji in the game, my first tournament team probably would be Kula, 98' Iori, Billy.

Billy Kane has been a JOY to play with in the lab!!  BEST BILLY KANE OF THE SERIES IMO because of drive canceling / EX moves.

His tap P most likely has an EX version in the console version because you can't EX tap P with Joe either, btw, so he should be even better but for now he's still pretty damn good.  BTW, I REALLY hope they bring back his tap heavy punch as well, that was cool.

I heard Billy has a 1000+ points damage on the iPhone, if that translates to the console it's going to be monstrous.
