Teams of up to four can be assembled, but their combined ratios must equal and go no higher than 4. The gameplay uses the SNK-style four-button format. The player also has their choice of "groove", or attack meter. The SNK-Groove is based on Extra mode from The King of Fighters '94 to 98, while Capcom-Groove is based on the gameplay system from Street Fighter Alpha.
