TFG Presents: Fighting EX Layer Beta Combo Video for Kairi, ALlen Snider & Skullomania

Now that the Fighting EX Layer PS4 beta has concluded, TFG presents an exclusive combo video starring Allen Snider, Kairi and Skullomania. For each character, I cover a wide variety of combos: beginner, intermediate, cross-ups, jump-ins, corner, etc. I didn't try to break the game during the beta.
