Faq About: Kensei Version: Japanese From: Konami Platform: Playstation Date:Jan 5, 1999 Author: Jay Anthony M. Encarnacion e-mail: knight Kensei is one of those games which comes along not so often, but carries some of the best elements in a game (a fighting game in here). Kensei puts a lot of emphasis on REAL LIFE martial arts. Each character has his own style which makes the game more interesting. Contents: I. Title Screen II. The Basic Moves III. Getting The Sub Characters, Bosses, Hidden Characters IV. Extra Mode V. Questions I. Title Screen Normal Mode - Beat everone. VS Mode - Beat a friend. Time Attack Mode - See how fast you can beat everyone. Survival Mode - See how you fare against all the enemies. Your life bar gets partly replenished after each round. Training Mode - Practice your combos in here with a friend or the computer. Watch Mode - Pick two computer fighters and see how they beat each other. Option Mode - Choose how you want to play the game. Extra Mode - More on this later..... II. The Basic Moves Punch - Square button Kick - Triangle Block - X button Catch - O button Counter - Hold back then hit Catch (O button) before the punch or kick hits you. Some moves cannot be countered. Side Stepping - Double tap Up or Down Run - Double tap Forward Fast Step Back - Double tap Back Running Flying Kick - Double tap Forward then hit the Square button Running Slide Kick - Double tap Forward then hit the Triangle button *The moves for each character can be learned by pressing Start then choosing the Commands option while fighting or while in Training Mode. III. Getting The Sub Characters, Bosses, Hidden Characters The Sub Characters are the opponents you face on your 9th round when playing the game in Normal Mode. After you beat the game with your character, his Sub Character will become playable. Here is the way to get ALL OF THE SUB CHARACTERS. I also suggest that you first put the game on VERY EASY, 20 seconds, 1 round against the computer, to have them all faster. Note: The Sub Characters, Bosses, and Hidden Characters have similar moves to their counterparts. Beat The Game With Get Yugo Akira Yuli Quintao Douglas Cindy Allen Steve Ann Arthur Heinz Kornelia Hyoma Sessue David Mark Saya Genya * After you get the Sub Characters from Yugi to Saya, go to Normal Mode Again then finish the game with these characters. Bosses *Yugo Zhou *Akira Kaiya Hidden Characters *Zhou Kazane (Has moves like Hyoma and Sessue's) *Kaiya Jelly/Billy (Billy is his alternate costume) IV. Extra Mode After getting all of the Sub Characters, Bosses, and Hidden Characters, you will notice that there will be a new mode in the title screen, the Extra Mode. After you choose that, a new screen will appear. The new mode is actually a New Game! It's called Running Bugi. It's like a time lap race where you use your characters to run around a track. Cute game. V. Questions 1. Why is it that THERE ARE NO ENDINGS IN THE GAME? I have the JAPANESE version, even though, why are there NO ENDINGS FOR THE CHARACTERS? Is there a way to see one? 2. Are there other extra games in this game? Enjoy the game anyway........heheheh... Copyright To Jay Anthony M.
