WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 3.0:

 and even a hidden game!

WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 2.5:

-Target areas for each movement have now been included in the moves lists.
On
each
 of the several Japanese moves lists I used to create this FAQ, there were
 annotations after each and every move that specified what part of your
opponent's
 body the particu in Manual" parts were removed from the 
 moves lists to keep things more basic (and easier to read and recognize).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
WHAT'S STILL MISSING:

-Nothing! Except for as-of-yet undiscovered secrets...

 ...oh, and NECO's moves. Yes, I have them, but there's gotta be SOMETHING
for you
 to discover on your own! :-)

ZERO DIVIDE STORY:

Zero Divide takes place in the near future. One day, a mysterious data
library 
known as "XTAL TOWER" surfaced on the Internet. Collected within this
library
were 
every nation of the world's most important national security secrets. The
hackers 
who accomplished this feat threatened to release these secrets to the
public
in a 
matter of days. The world was stunned that these supposedly impossible to
access 
secrets were acquired by these brilliant hackers. The military and
economic 
balances of the entire world could be destroyed...

Hours later, each of the world's countries received an invitation from a
being 
known only as "XTAL". The invitation stated that before the XTAL TOWER
library was 
made public, each nation would be given a chance to fight against the
library's 
security units, as well as each other. "If any challenger can defeat every
other 
unit within the alotted time, and find their way to the location of the
host,
then 
they can stop the secrets from being released and destroy the XTAL
TOWER..."

The battle begins...

TOP-SECRET TRICKS

-To gain control of ZULU, simply beat the game with all 8 characters,
regardless
 of the chosen difficulty level. The popular "cheat" method of doing this
is
to
 set the game difficulty to "EASY" and the timer to "30". Then, hit your
opponent
 once and just avois him thereafter until the timer runs out, giving you
the
 victory. Remember to save once you get him!

-To play as XTAL, finish the game as ZULU without continuing (not sure if
the
 difficulty level is important - Anyone who can help will be given the
appropriate
 credit).

-To play as NECO, finish the game as XTAL wit game-within-a-game, "Tiny
Phalanx", simply hold down "SELECT"
 and "START" on Controller 2 while the game is loading up. After the Zoom
logo
 comes on, you'll see the words "BONUS GAME". You can even save your high
scores
 to the memory card. It's unknown (so far) if beating the game with 100%
hit
rate
 opens up any secrets in the regular Zero Divide.
