The lights are on
In addition to a flood of new images, Capcom has explained more about the gem system, which allows players to shore up their fighting weaknesses.
Gems come in two varieties: assist and boost. Assist gems give you a bonus (like easy input special moves) balanced by a handicap in another area (like decreasing damage by 10%). Boost gems provide a stat increase, but need to be activated by performing specific actions in a fight.
If you want to learn more about how the gems work, you can hear it straight from the source in this video from Capcom. If you just want to look at the pretty pictures, see the image gallery below.
