The PlayStation and Xbox controls are the same, except for the different buttons on their controllers. One tip for beginners is to start with the basics and one or two special moves to practice with before moving onto more complicated combinations.

PC Controls

The biggest downfall to using a PC to play this game is that if you don't have the right equipment you won't be as successful. You need to have a mechanical keyboard at your disposal if you want to press three keys at one time. Otherwise, you won't be able to perform certain combos that could mean the difference between a win and a loss.

However, PC does come with extra key bindings that are great for single-player or custom games, and here is how you can make your own.
