Updated: Desk has uploaded another SFxT v2013 combo video, this features some pretty awesome new Chun-Li combos for big damage. The Kazuya Pandora video is after the jump.

Desk returns today with a quick video showing off how Pandora works in Street Fighter X Tekken v2013. This video features various combos mostly using Kazuya and discusses what changes have been made to Pandora itself and how it can be used now.

Tip by Afropower and mmbbx.

Now it looks usable instead of a "oh crap I press it, try and find an opening!"

I wonder if more people will get that use pandora 300 times achievement...

If you're using Kazuya and not using EWGF, then pick another character.

Wow I've to check all my main team normals to see how pandora works with them, I've got some setups working already after ex bound moves, but didn't check normal moves with positive frames. In a week or two I bet 50% of matches will have some Pandora, now it's really easy to use it.

The damage on ALL these combos except Ken's was god awful for the effort. You can land that easily without wasting a char. He needs more hits where it counts to do better damage. Although, in a close match, it could work out.

Shout out to SRK being down due to SFxT 2013 hype.

These aren't supposed to be impressive combos. Desk was just trying to show that it's now possible to do up close links into Pandora. Something that wasn't possible before. Just use your imagination and optimize and you'll find some nasty Pandora combos. Gem or no gem you can do a lot of damage with the new mechanic and for little to no meter.

@chip I think pandora is situational you would only use it for an instant kill or land a quick super and go in for one last mix up in hope to win the round in that sense the damage is fair I think, can't wait to see this mechanic in high level play

Hmmm, I think I liked the previous pandora better. Now it kind of feels like another power gem. Except this gem kills one of your characters. It could be used to punish someone rushing you when you were about to die before.

Something that makes the game more exciting!!!! Hopefully we will see less Time Overs in this game

So much for Kazuya nerfs lol

TwoCoins said on January 29, 2013 at 9:32 a.m.

pretty much the only practical use is for somebody with no meter need to kill somebody with 400 damage

@VulcanHades - I was wondering why I couldn't log in, lol.

pandora should be used at anytime.

I just discovered another Pandora tech, ground bounces, you can easily Pandora after a ground bounce and from there combo. Very handy for a quick high damage combo against an opponent with half or less health.

Example: Kazuya's Slaughter Hook, Pandora, goes into let's say King, King does crouching Hard Punch and cancels into super, this will do over 400 damage, this will kill a low health opponent making this very usable since it's easy and well worth it, if used against an opponent with low enough health.

The extra three seconds is exactly what was needed to actually finish your long ass Super Art animation. Pandora is going to have so much more use now. Just don't expect that you're going to pull an X-Factor and kill an 80%+ life character or something.

Funny part is... except for the last combo using ken's switch cancel, Kaz can do more damage solo than all of these using EWGF combos. lmao

People who don't think Pandora can do damage needs to watch VH's new vid:

The timing for Kazuya cr. MP into Pandora into (eg) Ken's superart is tight.

Pandora is very good once you get creative and experiment in the lab.

On topic: Desk's Chun vid was very helpful. Even more so than these.

@25 but very few could actually do anything except if you have a long range super like Jin or Ryu.
