Smau­gan

XBox: The Official Magazine - - FEATURE -

Team Ninja’s hor­ri­fy­ingly hard brawler was among the first times we learned just how cru­cial – and sat­is­fy­ing – a de­fen­sive dodge could be in a game that seems like it’s all about of­fence. In a game of in­sanely tough tests, Smau­gan stands out as the one that teaches that les­son above all. You might think a mys­ti­cal Flame Dragon would be an easy tar­get, but this bat­tle’s set across tiny plat­forms that the boss rarely comes near. It’s a huge re­flex test, ask­ing you to avoid plumes

of flame, snap­ping jaws and sear­ing winds, scor­ing what few hits you can. Once Smau­gan goes down, you’ll be breath­ing as hard as Ryu.
