Puzzle Fighter HD's precarious balancing act

Nick Doerr

We're very, very excited about the upcoming release of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, which we'll hereafter refer to as ... hell, the whole name is just dandy. However, some complaints from the original version have cropped up again, mainly the imbalance between certain characters (seems Ken and Donovan were a little cheap after all). David Sirlin came out to address these issues and described the tweaks he's performing on the upcoming PSN downloadable title.

The main, primary change is the drop pattern for certain characters to give them a fighting chance in the cheaper fights he saw between Ken or Donovan. If you take a look at the drop patterns, you'll notice Dan still isn't exactly a good choice to play as. A shame. Other tweaks include fixing the damage glitch caused by color-clearing diamonds and the addition of quick drops with the up button. We're excited about this game, so we're glad to see some of the more popular glitches are getting fixed up.
