Hwa Jai's Wiki entry.

Console changes:
- All frames on Drink super have been changed (apparently, its recovery is faster)
* Ground CD has changed. Moves forward and has invincibility to low attacks
* Fierce Dragon Tail has faster recovery; can be connected to a normal move after it hits
* Weak Dragon Backbreaker is now a 1F throw instead of a leaping throw
- Weak Dragon Tail comes out faster and connects from a fierce
- EX Air Dragon Kick now hits 3 times like its ground version and does 154 damage.
- EX Dragon Tail chips less guard meter

Producer Yamamoto says: Hwa has a lot of changes, like for example, his Weak Backbreaker is a 1F hit now. The recovery on his drink is different so it might be usable in a combo.

Has anyone given this guy a try yet? Really interested to see if he feels like the Joe/Choi combination I think he's become.

I am wondering the same thing. The only thing I can think what it does right now is some kind of boost either in speed or power or maybe something even more technical. It could even be both, who knows. If anyone finds out do post it!

Hey! I resent that.  I'm a Shen, Chin, Leona user.  You don't know how it is to fight Lizzes, Kula's, Ioris and K's all day. If we were tier list talkers, mine would be an A, B, B team.

For what it's worth, I've messed with him on Random, and so has Mr. Kof.  He's actually picked him once or twice to try to learn him (didn't do so well).

props to Kane317 for having pride and guts... using rather cool characters that you can't autopilot all day...

anyways we will see LOTS of Hwa Jai being played... as soon as someone discovers an EX glitch or infinite with him... LOL *sad*

Hwa Jai is a really interesting character. He cannot control as much space as Joe can due to his lack of a projectile but he has some very solid options and resulting strategies. His aerial Dragon Tail leaves an energy trail and pushes him away from opponents. I found this very good for jump-in shenanigans. Jump-in and if the opponent goes for any sort of punish, qcb + kick and the opponent eats a counter. His dragon kick is as good as Joe's Tiger Kick. When I faced a Joe, I felt like Hwa had very few options but that may be due to inexperience with the character.
