While Special Moves may be more exciting, you can’t forget about your Standard Attacks.
So lets have a quick look at all three, shall we?
Use it by holding down the Standard Attack button. It could be anything from 3 quick punches to a single powerful jab.
Use each by holding a direction, and then pressing the Standard Attack. They are weak, but have long range.
Use a Smash Attack by pressing Standard Attack at the same time as a direction. Smash attacks can be charged up, and are usually very powerful.
This is a Dash Attack. Use it by pressing Standard Attack while running.
It’s important to learn about all of your character’s attacks, so you can choose which one to use at any given time. That’s truly the key to victory.
