Game will load fine into fight scene, however after pressing any button, or moving the directional pad/joystick it freezes.

Also, the game will freeze after about 12 seconds into fight if you don't press any buttons. The guy above claims he performed "Little Testing", as this game is NOT playable yet as of latest stable release 1.4 in Feb 2019.

Opening logos and introductory video runs fine, same for the menus. However, upon starting any match, whether it be "Fight Now" or any other mode the game offers, just less than 5 seconds into the start of a match, the game freezes and the app crashes. Whoever labeled this game as "Playable" be damned.
