S Groove - This groove is similar to the SNK groove found in the original. In this groove, when a character’s vitality is low, the player can unleash a super combo limitlessly.

K Groove - The groove uses a combination of ’Just Defense’ which makes the opponent’s attacks ineffective, and a ’Rage Gauge’. Once this gauge is full, the player’s attack power increases and they are able to use a ’Max Super Attack.’ - Groove Point System - Points are accumulated through a judgment performance in real-time that is based on the player’s game performance.
