Of course, it’ll be outfitted with fighting genre staples like story mode and arcade mode plus versus and online, that last of which splits into casual and ranked matches.

She’ll be Story Mode’s primary antagonist, and has apparently paid a bunch of androids to do her dirty work. Check out our vid for more details.
