Looking at the lineup now, the SNK Heroines looks like it'll probably be the only fighter coming out from the publisher this year considering it's in the middle of the summer. It'd be natural to assume they're probably planning on releasing an update for KOF14 to humor fans until then.

But will Heroine alone be able to addict fans? Time will Tell!

Well it's not like the audience for Heroines overlaps much with the audience for serious fighters from SNK.

No new Samurai Shodown for the series' 25th anniversary would be pretty tragic.

It probably does have some overlap, considering the characters and niche audience for fighting games, but I'd say this audience probably would not play each game in the same circumstances and for the same reasons. I think more importantly it will need to attract lapsed SNK fans / fighting game fans to succeed.

Man, I forgot how completely bonkers was the enemy A.I. in AOF2/Ryūko2.

Ahh it's a legit manga, drawn by the voice actoress who did Meiten-kun's voice.
It's sort of a self-chronicle on her life, about living in Peking and then moving to Japan from her passion for otaku culture.

At a glance, it seems to be the memories of a VA who is born and raised in China, and she tells her Japanese audiences how she used to go to Chinese arcades, how it was there when she played KOF97, etc.

Ah! The point is she dubs Meitenkun, who's a Chinese character, in Japanese and Chinese. Because she speaks both languages, and that's rare (Terry and Date Masamune notwithstanding).

I was checking out the pools for the upcoming Evo Japan list, but man the entrants are packed with top players compared to the usual Evo in Las Vegas. It's pretty much guaranteed that there's at least one top level player in each pool, and while people seem to expect Xiaohai or ET to win, I can't be as opinionated-- this game can go anywhere.

On an interesting note, I spotted BALA listed in the pools (A7), which was quite unexpected since iirc he hasn't been to an Evo since 2012 when the series made its debut at their main stage. Unfortunately though he's not coming to this Evo Japan either as I've learnt yesterday. I've also heard that a number of other overseas players will need to drop plans because of visa, passport, or financial issues. Leaving aside the players from asian regions, the international turnout might not look as varietied as the pools may show.

"KOF XIV 3.0 - More than Oswald and Najd?" , posted Mon 22 Jan 22:25post reply

KOF XIV Battle Director Watanabe saw something from the preview of the next chapter of the KOF Manga (which will be officially out on February 5)...

While the teams are being introduced in the manga, who could this be character wearing a Kitsune Mask? Mai? Mian? Chizuru? A new character? Is pachinko still being phased out in KOF XIV even though they will be in SNK Heroines?

It does not matter at all. Since we'll get a taste of KOF XIV 3.0 at EVO Japan. Probably we'll know her identity soon.

I can't wait for EvoJapan, was looking through the KOF pools when they went up and it's just stacked with killers. Damn near every player worth mentioning for XIV is in there.

Saw Bala and was shocked to say the least, especially since Madkof is attending as well. Too bad it turned out to be false.

No disrespect to the NA players but most of them don't have a chance I think, especially with how bad Reynald got his clock cleaned at the recent invitation in China. M' made it all the way back from losers into the grand finals in this tournament so this was probably his strongest showing since winning the championship. Xiaohai won (quite easily) and basically took revenge on both ET and M'.

So far no country has won KOF at Evo more than once, it has been a new country each time a KOF has been a main game at Evo. Hope this tradition continues. Out of the 'major' regions for KOF, Japan and Mexico are the ones that have the most to prove.

"1 Million Arcade Archives sold on Switch" , posted Thu 25 Jan 19:20post reply

The 57 titles (at the time of writing) of Hamster's Arcade Archives series have passed a million sales worldwide on Nintendo Switch alone. I believe about 50 or 51 of the titles released are Neo Geo games.

Speaking of which, this week's Neo Geo game on Switch is World Heroes 2 and we already know next week's is Shin Samurai Spirits / Samurai Shodown II. The PS4 and Xbox get Shock Troopers this week.

Still, we can't confirm or deny the Steam data yet because of the addition of Najd. We'll have to wait for DLC Character No.2 for confirmation.

EDIT:According to PlayStation Europe, we'll get four characters, coming in April.

Oswald, ? (female), ? (male), Najd

Huh, I usually have a great deal of trepidation when it comes to game rumors and doubly so with SNK rumors; those fans seem to be particularly good at crafting elaborate fanfiction out of thin air. But what do you know, it looks like this one is panning out. It's a shame the KoF14 lighting didn't allow for his old Kouta Hirano shading but, hey, Oswald's back!

OK, I was on board with the game, and I wasn't particularly against the cow motif for Mai since it was basically her character all along. Leona was OOC, but her keeping a straight face was hilarious enough. Never liked Kula, so didn't care how they treated her.
This, though? This is NOT OK (also NSFW).

I also dislike how, in some of the footage we've seen, everyone plays with the girls in bkini, which has the DoA effect of making it extremely difficult to recognize the characters if your attention drops for a second.

I'm slowly cooling down on this game.

Exactly-- this is KoF97 with online play. Meaning that it's developed specifically with the Chinese market in mind.

IIRC there was talk about an HD remake a while back in China. I assume this is it, and they've decided to make it a global release.

Oh wow! And to think I was the only person who really enjoyed and like 97 as its one of my favorite KOF games. Even during those treacherous loading days of the Saturn.

I hope its an HD remake. Those were one of the best stages of the series. I wonder what they would do with the fighting system. With the choice of classic or new. Maybe new would be 98 fighting system closely.

It seems to be handled by Code Mystics so you should assume a product very similar to what happened with The Last Blade 2 and MOTW. Don't expect a HD remake for what is, as Prof and others mentioned, essentially aiming at the Chinese and SEA markets and also needs to run properly on all targets (PS4, Vita and a wide variety of PC configs).

Ah if it's handled by Code Mystics, then it's probably not HD. The HD version was under development by Wu Yao Technology in Beijing.



[edit] Oh, looks like the HD version's been out for over two years already! This totally went under the radar.

The weirdest thing about SNK Heroines Nakoruru is that Mahamaha was replaced with an actual bat - not Mahamaha with bat props like the scarf in XIV, but a complete replacement, what were they thinking?...

I do hope by the time they have most or all of the character revealed they'll have some cover artwork with more reasonable outfits - so far everyone but Yuri and Nako have artwork specific to that game while wearing their classics, so at least some effort has been applied towards having alternatives... but would it all be ready by Summer, considering that based on the comic the project has been in the works since about April or so?...


Even if this new take on KoF97 gets graphical tweaks, they're not fixing things like proportions in portraits, are they? The likes of Chizuru never look quite right in that game outside the actual combat sprites, and upgrading the resolution alone won't fix that...

The earlier trailer showed that each character has several costumes; ex. Athena has at least her schoolgirl, goddess and Heroine(?) costumes. What I don't know is whether the characters can trade costumes like in DOA Xtreme, to take a completely random example with no further association in mind.

Regarding Nakoruru... Hum.... At least we can appreciate the weirdly super specific reference? I think the story goes that Mamahaha has been transformed into a bat; but maybe that was just fans' extrapolating based on the picture.

A new free webcomic is how that seems like an SNK-centric take on the High Score Girl concept.

This was announced some time ago, but I couldn't even make out the title - "reba gacha archive"?... Not sure if that's supposed to be an abbreviation for something else.

It's got some eloquent moments, at least, like the character thinking of Heidern to psyche himself up.

I don't know japanese, but apparently the "レバガチャア" part of the name "レバガチャアーカイブ" according to google should means "Shake the joystick and press the buttons rapidly"

The title is actually made of three words, レバー、 ガチャ、 and アーカイブ. "Lever-gacha Archive". Lever of course refers to the stick, and gacha is a mashing/clattering sound effect, so the title essencially means "The stick-mashing Chronicles".

From quickly checking out the manga, it starts off in 2006 with a guy taking a visit to a shopping mall from his salad days, and then the story flashes back to 1995. And we learn that it's going to be about the guy back in his younger junior high days (age 14), where he thought he was going to get confessed by a girl but turns out she just wants to get personal tutoring on NeoGeo games.

Not bad, but I wonder why the author decided to start off the story from 2006 instead of the modern day? What's the significance starting the flashback from 2006? I'd love to know


And for anyone wondering, the author decided to name that fictitious shopping mall "Sausu (South) Shopping Center", as in Southtown, lol.

Huh, I had not even realized that there was a single life gauge for both characters. That is an interesting choice. NISA also posted a new video showing more costumes (including the classic ones). I like those alternative costumes much more, besides Yuri who is for some reason the only character with three cute costumes.

29 Characters sounds like a nice roster. If every female character from KOF XIV was included that would be about 18 characters right there.

I hope they work on the graphics a bit. The game gave me Street Fighter Mouse Generations vibes.

I actually think the game looks fun to play, but I am really not a fan of the whole "look how embarrassed they are" thing going on. Maybe the story will go about how they eventually start having fun with the ridiculous costumes, but the SETTEI makes me feel like I'm having fun when the characters themselves don't want to be there, and that feels weird.

Arguably, the absence of this sense of empathy in other more violent games suggests that they have succeeded tremendously in making me care about these characters where those other games have failed!

That I feel anything counts for something!

But if you skip every other row, it adds up to 14.

Also if there were characters in every space you'd kind of need a mouse cursor to select them, which the game doesn't seem to have. To me that implies that they're all lined up like the row that's already filled in.

But if you skip every other row, it adds up to 14.

Also if there were characters in every space you'd kind of need a mouse cursor to select them, which the game doesn't seem to have. To me that implies that they're all lined up like the row that's already filled in.



Just imagine if half the roster were DLC! *Cough* freeyangandblake .



(Nipponichi America reportedly clarified that it's a full package.)

Then again, we had KOF 2002 UM or Vanilla Samurai Shodown V Character Select or for a non-SNK example, Vampire Savior for a "non-linear" character select screen that does not use a mouse cursor.

I'm not certain to make of the interview's claim that there is a deep, fascinating story behind the costume changes. Just admit it's all sexy nonsense; honesty is the best policy!

I hope they work on the graphics a bit. The game gave me Street Fighter Mouse Generations vibes.



That may be the most accurate comparison for how this game looks like it's shaping up. Since Mouse Generations seemed only to exist to sell Revoltech figures I wonder if SNKH is an side project designed to sell expensive figures of the characters in all their various costumes?

I actually think the game looks fun to play, but I am really not a fan of the whole "look how embarrassed they are" thing going on. Maybe the story will go about how they eventually start having fun with the ridiculous costumes, but the SETTEI makes me feel like I'm having fun when the characters themselves don't want to be there, and that feels weird.

Some impressions on the controls setup and overall system over at Destructoid.

Similar stuff but from another source.

Maybe I am not looking at the right place but is there no way to rebind keys? The default is horrible

A short, but interesting interview by NintendoSoup with Oda and Soranaka about SNK Heroines.

I suppose they can hardly be blamed for not knowing that we know about Gals Fighter considering how niche the NGPC was and how small a release the game itself got, but it was one of those games that stuck out because of Miss X being a thing.

I was looking around for a higher-quality version of this, thanks!!

Wait a second... I never saw the last part until now. So Robert is the bad guy behind it all!? That's awesome!


[edit] I never knew FFS had a one second timer option of all things. Love to play that!
