KwonHo: The Fist of Heroes Breaks Through with New Trailer

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

KwonHo: The Fist of Heroes allows users to create their own unique fighter using a myriad of customization options along with their character’s fighting style with five different martial arts to choose from. Players can select between Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Tai Chi Quan, Ba Ji Quan, or Judo fighting styles. KwonHo: The Fist of Heroes is available for FREE on the PC now!

Updates and enhancements have been made to the latest build of KwonHo: The Fist of Heroes.

Region Settings

The KwonHo UI now has preset Region Settings that help users identify where their opponents are playing. Using Region Settings, they can find opponents that are closer to them, resulting in a reduced number of high-latency matches.

-Select Region when selecting a character

-Select Region when creating a game

-Filter game rooms in the Lobby by region

The user still has the freedom to join any game room.

Hero Skill / Hero Gauge

A newly added feature for the US service, the Hero Skill can turn the tide in any match. As your character takes damage, the Hero Gauge charges up and once the Hero Gauge is filled, the user can unleash a damaging combo. Further applications of the Hero Gauge are also in development.

Replacement Skills

Certain skills in KwonHo now carry an option for replacing it with a different version of the same skill. For example, a powerful Tae Kwon Do axe kick might drive the opponent's face into the floor, but the Replacement axe kick will bounce them off the floor, allowing the possibility of a huge combo.

This breaks the mold of current fighting games, where the attacks never change. KwonHo gives the user unique control over their style of play.

New Tips

On all Loading screens, in-depth information about skills and combos has been added. This will help new users learn how to succeed in the game.

Avatar Updates:

More avatar items have been added, and more will steadily be added as the service moves forward.
