After seeing some of the insane stuff Kusoru pulled off earlier tonight against Filipino Champ’s Dark Phoenix, we thought it would be a good idea to shed some light on the interesting strategies he employed. Using his unique team of Viewtiful Joe, Frank West, and Rocket Raccoon, Kusoru has worked out a variety of ways to deal with Phoenix during her transformation, each one incredibly effective depending on the situation. We stumbled across a great video that showcases these individual strategies, as well as footage of his match against F. Champ that’s already made its way online. He makes great use of Frank’s roll invincibility to avoid the initial explosion from the Dark Phoenix transformation, setting himself up for the anti-air grab hyper.
