This is the V-Gauge; it's found in the bottom corner of your characters' side of the screen. V-Gauges can contain either two or three bars, depending on the characters. Your V-Gauge fills up mostly by taking damage, and bars are required to use a V-Reversal move (one bar) or V-Trigger (all bars). V-Skill does not require any bars.

V-Skills are unique to each character and can be used at any time, fills the V-Gauge on "succesful" use. Activated by pressing mp + mk at the same time.

When one or more of your V-Gauge bars is filled, you can use a V-Reversal. V-Reversals are counter attacks to break out of your opponent's pressure, and costs 1 bar of your V-Gauge. Activated during guard by pressing forward + lp+mp+hp or lk+mk+hk at the same time.

When your V-Gauge is completely full, you can use your V-Trigger. V-Triggers are character specific; some drain the V-Gauge slowly, while others deplete it as soon as the move is used. Activated by pressing hp + hk at the same time.

Just in time for the new OT and not sure if it's been posted but:

**PS4 only :(

I know I missed it during the PSN sale so I thought I'd pass the info along.

Hmm. The timing on Abigail's charged back+FP, FP off a juggle is tough but I'm starting to get it. Right now I'm doing it after EX Giant Flip and then ending with EX Punches. Massive damage off a V Trigger combo.

His Giant Flip just needed some more + on block to be as useful as Hugo claps.
