Fantasy Strike’s controls are so simple, they work equally well on a variety of input devices, such as keyboard, console controller, or joystick. While most fighting games use all 8 directions on the d-pad or joystick, Fantasy Strike only uses left and right. It also uses a jump button (which can be mapped to “up” if you prefer), three attack buttons, and buttons for throw and super.
Here’s a diagram of the controls:
