Kizuna Encounter: Super Tag Battle (風雲スーパータッグバトル, Fū'un Super Tag Battle) is a fast-paced 2v2 tag team weapon fighter, and sequel to 1995's Savage Reign. There are lots of overpowering options, long damaging combos, grimy mixups, and powerful defensive mechanics focused on dodging and stealing momentum. Team building generally takes a backseat due to a lack of assists, instead letting you focus on trying to cover for bad matchups or just picking the two characters you like the most.
A unique aspect of Kizuna Encounter is its large amount of projectile attacks with varying priority between them. The higher priority projectiles, which are often a character throwing their weapon, have very distinct properties compared to traditional projectiles. They will beat other “normal” fireballs clean and have a distinct travel path, in exchange for longer startup and recovery. Each character approaches this dynamic in a wholly different manner, whether it be for purposes of approach, runaway, zoning, or counter-zoning.
Kizuna Encounter takes place one year after Sho Hayate's victory over both King Leo and his "shadow", King Lion, in Savage Reign. To enact vengeance for his humiliating loss at the hands of a man who fights with a boomerang, King Leo decides to hold another Battle of the Beast God tournament, but with a twist: this one is a tag team tournament. Most of the first game's cast returns, with Carol Stanzack and Nicola Zaza being replaced by the new protagonists: Rosa and Kim Sue-Il. But this Beast God tournament doesn't end with King Leo's defeat, because a new and even more dangerous force lurks behind the scenes.
