Gameplay

The gameplay is vastly different from different installments in the Bloody Roar Series, and rather similar to the Virtua Fighter Series but:

  • Button Layout
    • Square/X/Y - Guard
    • Triangle/Y/X - Punch
    • Circle/B/A - Kick
    • X/A/B - Beast Mode
  • Beast Drives - each character has 2 normal beast drives and 1 hyper beast drive. each of the beast drives can be pulled off by a combination of buttons(like Power Blows in Dead or Alive 5) but only if the player's health is low enough.

Plot

The game takes place in 2012, eight years after the events of Bloody Roar 4(2004).

Prologue

Eight years ago, Kenji Ogami and Uriko Nonomura where kidnapped by a new Zoanthrope Organization Known as "Pure" that was formed by an extremist Zoanthrope called Sergei Krupin. Kenji and Uriko we're later found and rescued.

Current Events

Eight years later, Zoanthropes achieved more rights in the international law, even more than Non-Zoanthropes. this is thanks to "Pure"'s strict Zoanthrope-Superiority agenda and the fear of the syndicate within the international law. now "Pure" has announced the 5th Hyper Beast Duel Tournament in order to eliminate the remaining resistance against the syndicate. a former member of "Pure" called Aileen Brody seeks to destroy the organization for good. and two young Zoanthropes called Takuya Inoue and Akane Yamada seek to help their fathers who 8 years ago worked in the "W.O.C"("Pure"'s main resistance) and to find out what happened to Kenji and Uriko.
