|A 2nd Encore to an already great 2D-Fighter? It's Paws-itively delightful!|
|Is that Beuwolf? Or Is it Batman?|
There is a tutorial mode in the game to help new players get acclimated on how to play, so no one is left feeling left out... though playing online with other players can lead to some pretty on-sided affairs, but that's the norm with fighting games in general these day!

First off you get all the DLC characters, that have been released since 2013, so Squiqly, Big Band, Eliza, Beowulf and Robo-Fortune to help round out the roster. In addition all the color variations, giving every one 25 different color pallets. Perfect for those wanting a lot of variety with how their chosen characters look.

Secondly, the story mode now has voice over dialog for every character, bringing the story to 'life' and being able to get a more closer feel to everyone's personality. Played though Ms. Fortune and Filla's stories, plus also revisited the old Marie 300% mode, and there is something about about the voices that to me seem like perfect fits.
Third, a brand new Challenge mode, featuring 25 various challenges that will test the players skill with various handicaps, such has either having to defeat 3 characters with 150% health while you have only 50%., or a shorter time limit to achieve victory. And don't be surprise if the A.I. goes into 'turtle' mode, blocking as much as possible to work the clock against you!

The thing about this DLC that some may or may not like, is that if they already have a lot of the previous DLC, all you're getting is the new modes... but I personally feel it's worth it seeing as how the game has grown quite a lot in three years.
|Claws encounter of the furred kind!|
and the 2nd Encore Pack at the same time is the way to go!
To close this out I'm going to include some in-game footage... cause well, having a video with my blogs is what I do! However... in it, I only touch on the 'Challenge Mode' and the 'Survivor Mode'. While I wasn't successful in the challenge I selected to play... in survivor mode... let's just say it was a CLAW-some run of 15 victories!
