@barrabas: Okay sorry about that, I just see wrongful blame dumped on SNK way too much in Capcom vs SNK 3 discussions.
This thread collects all the recent times SNK has stated they want to work with Capcom again: http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/126575/mvc3-sfiv-kofxiii-producers-mention-cvs3-we-want-cvs2hd-online-edition-and-capcom-vs-snk-3-please
I was really looking forward to SNK continuing the work done with KOF13 and giving us a dreammatch in KOF14 with all characters ever to appear in the series in the beautiful KOF13 graphics style.
Then I hear KOF is going 3D??? Normally this news would not be good but seeing the new Guilty Gear game using new 3D graphics technology where the characters actually look hand drawn with real bright cartoony colors really made me consider that the new 3D KOF might actually look very good IF DONE RIGHT!!
Probably the reason why they released it bare bones was because they realized people who are fans will still probably buy the game even if they do release it bare bones and those who are not won't, I'd probably look at the Jojo's Bizarre adventures release last year as reference.
I doubt that's the reason. The difference is no one was asking for JoJo's, but people have wanted a proper re-release of CvS2 with online play badly. It's up there with Third Strike and MvC2, and those both got re-releases with online play. I'm guessing we aren't seeing a proper re-release of CvS2 with added features is because it would require re-licensing with SNK and that isn't happening for whatever reason.
I really wish people would stop spreading misinformation about SNK.
SNK has stated on numerous recent occasions within the past 3 years that they are ready and willing to work with Capcom again. Licensing is not an issue with SNK as they have licensed their characters to other companies more than 3 times in just the past 2 years.
