I'm so excited that B. Jenet is a hidden character here! That's very exciting! I can't wait for this to come to the States. Speaking of which, anyone know the NA release date?

Who would've thought that Richard Meyer would've made a comeback after so many years. That's amazing.

My guesses for three of the six obvious slots remaining: Robert, Benimaru, and Whip. Robert is almost too obvious (the moves would be easy to copy from Ryo; lots of potential for costumes). Whip is all over the character stories as the fourth member of the K'/Maxima/Kula team. And Benimaru shows up to taunt Kyo and talk about how he'd like to fight him soon.

The other slots, I've no clue.

I just remembered, I can delete the other topic since I started it. That way no one will be tempted to post anymore in that one.

@Korigama (from previous thread): Yeah I'm pretty disappointed with these alternate costumes in general. I think the only ones I really like are Kyo's and Ryo's. But just remember that's not the only one in there (4 costumes for each "model" meaning a total of 8 per character). And I still don't see how an alternate costume can detract your opinion from the game as a whole so much.

We needs more AoF secret characters!

Ryuhyaku Todo for MI3!
Serious Mr Karate would be a nice match for Nightmare Geese though (whom being that particular incarnation of the character, mey still be officially dead after all, bar from Jin scroll inluence on matters of mortality)... if they tossed in Richard due to reusing Capoeira animations from Soiree, they could certainly borrow stuff from Ryo and work from there - very unlikely though...

Whip's been mentioned as a possibility, but I doubt that one... I'm not that sure SNKP has mastered 3D well enough to implement her weapon properly in that environment...
Then again, it never did look that good in the first place in the 2D KoFs IMO...

The reason why Geese is called Nightmare Geese in MI2 is because he had a nightmare and didnt get any sleep. (look at the bags under his eyes)

There's a movie of Ninon fighting Ninon on the official site if you want to get a good idea of what she does.

I gotta say, though, her second costume looks way better than the first. Her sleeves didn't look like they had obvious clipping going on with it, but that could be the blurry video doing it.

Man, why is SNK so in love with the idea of cloning Kyo? Is the world not getting it's daily requirement of Kyo with only a single Kyo?

Considering how closely Nagase's move mirror Hanzo's I wouldn't be surprised if the modern generation of the Hattori family showed up in the game as well. Then again, that could just be a guy who looks a lot like Hanzo when blacked out.

While there is an interesting selection of characters I'm hoping one or two more people from the Fatal Fury roster make it in since I'm beginning to think of MI2 not as a KoF game but as Wild Ambition 2 instead.

You got a messed up link there.

But yeah I saw that. It looks like from the shadow, I can make out her pigtails and dress that she wears (at least in KoF 2000 anyway), and she obviously wears a cute take on Billy's 95 outfit as her alt.

But the forearms... if those are forearms and not just sleeves...

Seeing as the first one is probably Fio/Eri, and since there was a Metal Slug tank... could it be Ryuuhaku? He was driving that bulldozer in one of the screenshots.

Good to see Lily Kane is confirmed. To think, she's finally a playable character and poor Joe didn't make the cut for the roster.

I would rather have a completely new character than a character that has appeared in all of the KOFs. (But being a Joe fan, it makes a a little sad)

Lilly Kane looks great! Hopefully she won't be a clone character.

Actually I was thinking more of Joe's interest in Lily. While I certainly wouldn't mind seeing Joe in the game I was being a plot scrub more than anything.

Fighting game companies are pretty thick when it comes to the simple concept that one version of a character is enough.

And after seeing the latest batch of hidden characters, I'd say that's a concept that'll forever be beyond their grasp.

Only one additional AOF character added and it's another Kyokugenryu character.

Geez!!!

I'm surprised that my guess of Hanzo was actually correct. But... Armor Ralf? Unless he can fold up and transform into a tank I don't get why he was added.

So have there been any very early impressions posted yet? Has the game engine changed dramatically from the previous game? How do the new characters handle?

You know, Hanzo isn't a single guy; it's a title that's passed down through the generations. Though it's a little weird, it's not too unreasonable for the current-generation Hanzo to turn up here.

Hanzo REALLY doesn't fit there.

...well, most of the cast doesn't, in fact.

And that Armor Ralf (a la Armor King? xD) looks hideous and uninspired in my opinion.

Some of the alt outfits are good [nice to see that Geese and Richard dressed up for the occasion] and some are not [Terry could not look more idiotic] but for me there are more winners than losers. With things like a Heiderned Leona and Chae Lim and May Lee doing the fusion dance to turn into some sort of wonderful aggregate character this extra feature is going to be just as amusing as it was in the first game.

I think Armor Ralf is a good match for KOF:MI. It's a novelty, it's stupid and it's ugly. Well...and it's fun. I think that describes MI pretty well.

I say "novelty" not only because the game has so many SNK references and "fan service" type things, but because even though 2/3 of the special moves in the game are only useful for combo filler, all the characters retain their original moves. Since the game is so unlike KOF, it wouldn't make sense in terms of balance or character design to have essentially the same set of moves for every character (that they've had before) and expect it to magically work out. But if they didn't have their classic moves, it wouldn't be KOF...and it wouldn't appeal to the fans.

It's strange to me that MI appeals to KOF fans in a novel way like that, while the gameplay is so violently different from KOF. When I play it, I think "is this something a KOF fan is supposed to like?"

It sounds like I'm being hard on the game...and I am, because it's so tacky and "base" for a fighting game, but it's still lots of fun...which is the most important thing.

This isn't the first time that this issue appears, but by this point it should be clear to everyone that MI was, is and will be only a 'fooling around game'; almost everyone plays the game because they fool around with characters, play around with the voice acting or how laugh at poor made fan serive or the storymode, while it's awfully unfair for the population that 'the game it's only made to fool around', the game itself just doesn't amount to more.

From my point of view the most important feature of the first one was the mission mode; while it wasn't really extrictly hard, it was enough to keep me busy with the game for a long time; the best thing that the second game can do is to be completely filled with bonus, adds, features and minigames...

When I play it, I think "is this something a KOF fan is supposed to like?"


I'm a KOF fan since KOF 94 and no I deffinitely not like KOF MI...This is deffinitely the worst shit ever made by SNK or SNKP...
On the neo arcadia Forum memeber can't even understand how did the US player can be so interested it a such Pathetic game.

It's Ugly (very ugly Pityfull Falcoon Design, Lame Color edit, Worst graphics since MKD) the gameplay such (where is 3V3 of the KOF serie??)
And is deffinitely everything but not Fun to play, it's more like Falcoon is taking gamer for dweebs. "Looks we just make a pityfull 3D and they by it, Why woulde we take some time and work in a good 2D, if they're stupid enough to by my crap?? And I won't even think to a good 3D game that we can make in with the help of SEGA..."

The only thing that will kill SNK and their licence is Falcoon stupidity. IMO I prefer No more SNK than this kind of sh**

That's a good way to put it...and that's exactly how I feel. I enjoyed (laughing at) all the different colors and fooling with the ludicrous combo system and missions, but when it came to replaying the game for the sake of replaying it, or doing vs with my friends (outside of the novelty of "look at this!") the game got really old really fast.

MI2 seems to improve on the strengths of the original without correcting any of its flaws. I guess that's okay. I mean, it's never going to be pretty, balanced or deep, so they just piled on more and more crazy crap to occupy you with.

Playing it last night, finally, I already noticed some gameplay changes that are certainly for the better.

I noticed, first thing in training mode, that ground combos don't seem quite so easily accomplished, now. You can't just tag someone with a crouching light kick to pop them back into the air like before, it has to be a move with a prperty to do it, and most (maybe all) of those moves seem to be (S)DM or things like Kyo's ground grab.

They also changed the damage judgement on combos so that you can't just tack on a SDM with one or two hits and still get 30% or more damage. Even Jivatma falls to this, since his SDM usually eats half your life bar, but in a combo seems to do MAYBE 25% at most, effectively making whatever combo he did do less damag than the SDM by itself.

These two changes, alone, make the game more playable to me, and I still enjoyed the first game quite a bit.

Yeah, in my limited experience, totally absurd combos seem much more difficult to do now. You can still get hit on the ground with ridiculous things if you don't recover, though...but...well...who doesn't recover?

The "parry" move, unfortunately, doesn't seem to do much for the game, though. It's really not much different than a sidestep (although the sidestep seems less useful now).

I got the copy today and play a bit. It seems fun. I'll be having fun but I dont really like the ending style (well, actually I only finished with Kyo)and I dont like the closing vid. It spoils the game endings (sort of)I wish it as a secret ending after some point. Anyway I'll wait for other endings for commenting.

For my other Complaints.
The backgrounds. Too much tomb raider style backgrounds, I hate when the theme of backgrounds insistingly moving one type. (I hope I explained) what I meant.
And most important one I hated Jivatma's background. How on earth they can call it a mosque. The place is not a mosque, (you cant find any hindu myth statues in a muslim's mosque. This ignorance is OFFENSIVE. Seriously. First Suija and now this. (If this "mosque" word in the game means something different that I dont know please enlighten me.)
Second I dont like Jivatma and I dont like Falcoon being effected by 2d kof boss creations. I mean Mukai-->Duke, Magaki-->Jivatma. Do I need to say influence?
Well if KOF XII will have short haired, cool looked, ruthless female boss , voila! it means we will have short haired, cool looked, ruthless female boss for MI3.

I hope they give nona or hiroaki co-producer job for MI3 to stop Falcoon sometimes.. Or someone else I dont know.Cause if they dont we will have another fooling around, kofashion show fighting game (I like some costumes though most of them unnecessary) for MI3.

I'm happy cause this game gonna be fun
I'm unhappy cause this game has the potential for seriously better game, at least storyline-wise. And they wasted it.

Game play wise Falcoon doesn't have influence on HOW THE GAME SHOULD BE PLAYED, he is mainly there for design jobs, so this complain is directed the wrong way. SNK created a very light and bad engine and choose to mostly re-use it, is as simple as that.

Then I think he did his job well. Really I mean it.
To tell the truth Jivatma looks heavily inspired by Magaki and he's not as much as cool magaki. On the other hand She-Jivatma looks kinda cool.

And when I saw credits, I saw english voice over actors and translator names but it has not have english language option. Those for english version of game or it is somewhere that I cant find?

Yeah, I think they just decided the word "mosque" looked cool and tacked it on without any regard to potential consequences. I'm so-so on the level designs, but I like the music, and since the music matches the levels well, I feel like I like the levels more than I actually do.

I think Jivatma is really just like Lin, though. He has one of his moves exactly and several that are quite similar. He even spits poison. I'm not crazy about his face, but his motions are quite cool, especially for MI. If he was in 2D and/or a good artist tweaked his design, I think he could be quite cool.

Well in this link I saw what he doesnt like. It says Philistines who worship him. But as far as I know Philistines are muslim. So I guess he represents God of our religion which we believe one and only god in universe who owns the universe. But I might be mistaken hence misguided-translation of mine.

Actually, it might be wrong knowledge about Taj Mahal. I heard some people think that building was a Mosqoue. As far as I know its a "Grand Tomb" which builded by some emperor for his wife.
Also I take back my complaint about backgrounds. I complained too early, when I played yesterday with Kyo I only saw "The temple Ruins" "Hunting cave" "whatever tomb" "sacred garden" and "Grand mosque".
But today I noticed "war memorial" which also in 2003 bg, a background with 95 resemblance and "fleur de lis". Also I realized Hunting cave is above the SVC "forest" bg. I hope there are more cameos like this.

And I love most of the music, especially the ones with reminds me balkans music with guitar sounds, and classical violin theme.

It doesn't make any sense, indeed. First, it should have been "the philistines who DON'T worship him".

Then, I'm not quite good in history, but the philistine having been around since at least 1000 BC if I recall correctly, I don't see how they could have had any link with any aspect of the muslim faith.
The word has gain a metaphorical meaning with I don't recall which scene in the new testament where Jesus is confronted to them, and they appear as people who follow any opinion of the group, without thinking about why they do it, just because they don't want to be seen alien to the group.

I got it but I thought it that way cause some time ago I read something from a missionery site and what I understood is christians(at least christians who wrote that) think that "we believe a moon god from ancient far-east myth". When I saw Suijas profile and his moveset (all of named with moon) I thought they were referring our god.
By the way that site wrote that we believe "a moon god" so when its the holy month of Ramadhan which we fast each day from dawn till sunset, starts with crescent. According to them thats why we had a crescent symbol for our religion.
And thats not exactly true. Cause if we believe a moon god we wouldnt be using sunset-sunrise for Namaz (ritual prayer). We believe a God which is one and only and owns everything on the universe, not just a pathetic satellite.
Sorry for being off topic.

They're talking about philistines in the sense of "A smug, ignorant, especially middle-class person who is regarded as being indifferent or antagonistic to artistic and cultural values", I think(?), not the actual people. The japanese site uses the word "vulgar" I believe.

From the sound of it, it sounds like christian propaganda from the time the Ottomans owned Spain, 400 or 500 years ago.
And besides, we're talking about something written by japanese people, for whom the existence of whole world outside of their coasts was noticed less than 200 years ago and who still have trouble to assign a place to Europe on a map.

Well Thanks. Really. I knew I might be mistaken.

About Grand Mosque, I guess its a honest mistake about Taj Mahal, like they did it similar mistake in SS Tenka, an Aztec background with Turkish Art Music song "Dönülmez Akşamın Ufkundayım <Vakit Çok Geç>" (you can hear same lyrics in the song) remixed with earthenware kettledrum (which is not commonly used in Turkish Art Music) sounds and another Turkish Art Music Mode elements.

Latest Snkp games has good Soundtracks I love SS Tenka's and Now MI2. Elizabeth's both themes in Kof XI is awesome. (I've got to say this one.)

"Oldschool music tracks ahoy! AWESOME!" , posted Sat 6 May 11:54post reply

(Just a copy/paste from my post at S-C)

I just unlocked the Neo-Geo land stage (the new stage not the reused one from MI1) And the..music...oh god the music... it just plainly KICKS ASS

The default version of the stage plays quite the spiffy remix of the neo-geo startup "chime". The alternate variation however has around *35* old tracks from previous SNK games. Half of which I have trouble recognizing.

Classic Pao Pao theme, 94 Esaka, Terry's Fatal Fury 2 theme, XXX (Omega Rugal's theme from 98), Classic Ikari themes, there's a LOT here.

And what's even cooler, is that, from doing it in Practice, whoever you're playing as will determine what theme is played. Classic Kyo gets 94 Esaka, Iori gets his classic Arashi no Saxophone, Chae Lim get's "Wild Party" (Korean theme from KoF 2000), and of all weird things Duke gets Rythmic Hallucination (Orochi Team theme from 97).

Going through the sound test just about all the "character themes" you could imagine are here. No Athena track though she uses a theme called "Dragon Gal RB" (from the slots game?). There's the AoF1 Todoh theme, Geese's classic theme, even one of 2001's horrid songs are here.

I hope I can get through the hard missions and Quest Survival for the other stages. HOT DAMN!

Apparently according to Gamefaqs there's a Mizuki stage that uses her BGM as well as a Krauser stage that uses his BGM.

To be honest, fanservicey games like this (in the literal sense, not the panties/tits/whatever sense) have the extra value to hlp them go from being merely okay or good to being outstanding due to a thoughtful execution. That and it helps that this particular iteration is actually pretty well executed overall.

I also noticed that, from what I can tell, there's a mix of Andy's FF2 music, thogugh I'm not sure if it's the time of day for the stage or just who was being used at the time.

Well, like I said, I have trouble recognize a good half of the themes. I was kind of curious about Jivatma's "theme". At S-C there were some thoughts on his parallels with Yuga, so could it be Yuga's theme? His track seems to be called (in the sound test) BIO-INFORMATICS

Not Yuga's theme, and he doesn't really look or fight like Yuga either (True Yuga's arms stretch, but not like his...) Should I post up my old Yuga vids again? I could post Yuga's awesome theme, too. Sitar music rocks.

Update: Unlocked Neo Geo Land; Jivatma's theme is just music from Metal Slug, not Yuga's.

"3D graphics+2D gameplay=WIN!" , posted Mon 8 May 17:33post reply

Yesterday I had the chance to play some matches on MI2 and I feel like talking about it.

Well, I don't remember having so much fun with a KOF since the days I played KOF'98... The gameplay is fast, swift and frenetic. Incredibly FUN. Heck, even I can do decent combos on this one...! The graphics are not glorious, but are quite nice indeed. Both the music and the speaker give the battles a much needed thrilling touch: you really feel like kicking your oponent's ass and making it to the next round. A fun game indeed. The cast could be better with Vanessa in and some of the Ikari guys out, but I won't whine too much about it. Plus, the alternate outfits are ludicrous and hilarious, as is expected on a 3D fighter. And, oh, god, I'm such an heretic, but I do like short haired Mai...

I think KOF MI2 combines all the great things I've always liked of the old school 2D fighters with many cool things I also love of 3D fighters (aka: Tekken or DoA). If this is the path KOF series is going in the future, count me in.
