Looks sweet.

Do people still care about this series?

Posted by Pr1mus

I wonder who will stop numbering new entry first between this and Final Fantasy.

Posted by Anjon

@Pr1mus: SNK only started numbering KOF titles a few years ago. This is the third in the numbered series. Yeah, I know how ridiculous that sounds.

Posted by Dragon4234

Are we done with Ash yet?

Edited by Maajin

@Pr1mus: Well, KOF only started numbering at KOF 11, so Final Fantasy is WAY ahead...

On another note, what the fuck did they do to Takuma? He had a stroke or something? This is his standing animation, I'm not even kidding:

Posted by nohthink

Okay. They just might get it right this time. I'll give them a benefit of doubts

Posted by Pr1mus

@Maajin: @Anjon: So they took the other way around and went with numbers once they didn't know what to name them anymore?

I like that :D

The music makes me want to punch people... so it fits the game well.

If they get the online right, this could be pretty sweet. Either way, it looks gorgeous.

It's mostly people in the hardcore fighting game community that are the most excited.

30+ of my favorite characters? Pish posh, if I can't be Dan than "Noooooooooooo Thanks"

Posted by heatDrive88

Ugh, I really, really hope they get this one right. I've been waiting for them to get a new KOF game right since KOF2001.

Posted by RE_Player1

I might get this, always been interested in King of Fighters.

Posted by Apollo87

OMG I'm invited!

please don't mess up the online again

Posted by ZeroCrescent

Always bet on Lucky 13.

I still can't tell if Billy Kane and Saiki will be in the game or DLC. I really hope they are actually in the game. I want my Fatal Fury Villain team of Billy, Hwa Jai, and Raiden to be ready on day one.

I think it just means that they weren't in the arcade version of the game. Hopefully, that's what they mean.

Can't freakin' wait, but it looks like it's been delayed a month from the previous late October release date.

I think the numbering for KoF is way crazier than Final Fantasy.

Game looks gorgeous.

Posted by HerbieBug

Don't fuck up the online again SNK I swear to god! D:

introducing NEOMAX

oh SNK, you so crazy

King's in it, that's all i care about

Posted by kollay

Pumped for giving this series some more breath after XII.

Posted by Jnorman

The last time I played a KOF game was like.......2002. Maybe this is the one to try and get back into it with.

wait saiki is a dude?

Yep, it has. You know, I'd almost rather they release the game in January. It's going to get absolutely buried in the holiday rush now.

Heh, yeah, androgynous men are in full force in the Ash saga. Hell, look at Ash, I was CONVINCED dude was a chick until I actually got into KOFXI.

Posted by kitsune_conundrum

looks good, they need to redraw athena and where is blue mary.

Posted by HotSauceMagik

I was one of the people who got burned on 12. Despite that, I LOVE the game and it still has the best looking sprites hands down ::queue menacing stare at 3rd strike::

That said, If the net code is bunk, then the game will fail. Simple as that. Wait to buy till a few days after release folks!

I dunno, the modern Guilty Gear and BlazBlue games are pretty damned gorgeous as far as sprites go...

Troll harder, 'cause nobody is going to fall for your antics.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Hopefully this game will be good. I do like me some King of Fighters.

Yeah, I really can't take SNK seriously anymore until they put some damn effort into their presentation. It was great for arcades in the 90's but it REALLY isn't cutting it anymore. That or take a less half-hearted stab at 3D this time. Capcom managed to figure it out, they need to too.

Posted by Soniku

Oh hey, it's already been delayed from October 25th (or 31st was it?) to November 31st. Given SNK's track record, I bet we won't see this until mid-next year now.

At least this should have a real arcade mode unlike XII, which will help "make up" for the inevitable lack of decent netcode. -_-

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Wait, how can they have "exclusive characters" if there's only one version of the game?

Don't underestimate Central and South American nations.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Might have to get this, goddammit. I already have Skyrim, UMvC3, Batman AC, Dark Souls, and possibly MW3 or BF3 too to get.

Posted by Kiemoe

Game. Is. So. PRETTY.

@Dark_Lord_Spam said:

They're characters that aren't in the arcade version.

odd. Besides wayforward stuff, I can't think of any other game with this amount of sprite animation. Easily some of the best sprite work around. period.

I do provided they can bring it back to what made the 98/99/2K era so great.

I suppose that makes sense, then. Thanks.

Its a niche title, in a niche genre, so i will surprised if will even sell enough to go over the breakeven point.

The game itself is really well animated, its just the shadows that makes it look so goddamn dull and soulless

i applaud them for making a spritebased game in this day and age, and i would LOVE for sf5 to be that too, handdrawn and all, but this just looks so soulless. Also im not gonna give them anymore money after how badly i burned my fingers with Kof12. goddamn it was a shitty game, and people complain about MVC3 being a beta? makes me sad

Believe me, a game like this does not require a huge investment to localize and publish. Nearly all of the work is already done, it's basically only some light text translation, QA, and balancing. You don't even need a huge marketing push because everyone that would care about it already knows about it.
 
It isn't as iconic as Street Fighter, but KOF is still a pretty major player in the fighting genre. Newer sprite-based franchises like BlazBlue or Guilty Gear may be more innovative in certain ways, but KOF has a much larger fanbase worldwide.

QA and translation still cost money, and why would you balance it if it already has been released? I think youre exgerrating the size of the fanbase a lot and any iteration of KoF hasnt been relevant in the scene for YEARS.
