Level Up Your Game – SFxT – Marduk / King

by Rip

Continuing on in our Street Fighter x Tekken coverage, this week we cover the two grapplers of the Tekken series, Marduk and King. Both characters have unique playstyles and are a lot of fun. King’s combo potential is ridiculous so TastySteve on Cross Assault, take notes! #TeamTekken (Oh yeah, and stay tuned to the credits for a little bonus)

Also, congratulations to @lionheart88 on twitter for winning our first #TeamTekken shirt giveaway. We’ve got one more to give away so subscribe to our youtube channel and comment on the video or follow us on twitter @LevelUpYourGame and retweet the message at the end of the episode for a chance to win.

Its nice to see most of the moves are back from past tekken games for the tekken characters so each character still feels familiar for players who played past tekken games.

King looks awesome, I'm kinda sad El Fuerte didn't make but looking at king... hey maybe I could still play a luchador, not exactly Elf but still pretty damn close (concept wise)

I'm definitely going straight to King when the game comes out. Those juggles are too crazy with that follow up power bomb.

King looks pretty good, cant wait to anti-air with his counters. Does anybody know his wake up options if at all?

King looks pretty cool in this game. I hope u guys do a tutorial for Yoshimitsu/Raven soon.

Thanks for the video tutorial. I've been considering giving King a try as one of my main teams (paired with Hugo for some grappling goodness) and it's good to see that he's still a solid character, especially since he was my main throughout the Tekken series.

King's my favorite Tekken character. I remember for the longest time I could never do his chain grabs. Then I stopped playing picked the game pack up and was able to do them again. I forgot them since I haven't been playing again though. Still can't really pull of the Rollin' Death Cradle which I wish I could.

Thanks for this guide, really shows me a lot of potential with these characters. After this I plan on using King along with Steve (who I can't wait to see the guide on.) Keep up the good work guys. :D

I kinda need to ask, does the 1+4 beat out everything once it's in the air? That move might be too good against non-dp characters. What about the hop kick? Does it launches people doing low?

Lamar

Does king still have his multi-throws and kick counter?

Islaw

WOW @ credits

Rip

It has a really slow start up but it is unblockable. Havent investigated the property to the fullest so not sure what it beats out/doesnt beat out. Hopkick does not launch people doing lows. You can see in the video that they can crouch under it and if they are doing low attacks, both players whiff. True high

Rip
Rip

His multithrows is just his super. Counters are still in, but not specific to kicks and punches. Instead theyre specific to jump in or grounded.

Rip
Rip

Its a major whiff like whiffing any special really. Whiffing anything in this game at ranges where your opponent can punish you is very costly. Very much like Tekken in that aspect

Targie

What are the recoveries on the counters? If my opponent is jumping towards me and I whiff the counter because they don't attack will they have time to punish me?
