Marvelous Entertainment has released additional details and images of KOFEX's new character through Enterbrain Inc.'s Arcadia Magazine.

The new character- already known as Habana Moe (mo-eh) from the previous announcement, is a Japanese girl raised in the States and uses ancient martial arts. Taking daily care of Kyo Kusanagi outside of Japan after his escape from the Nests cartel, Moe finds an invitation letter to the next KOF tournament sent to Kyo, and decides to enter with him and Benimaru. It is hinted that Moe may have a deeper connection to Kyo or possibly to his bloodline, likewise to Iori.

King Of Fighters EX -Neo Blood- is scheduled for release in 1/1/02, priced 5,800 Yen (software only) or 15,600 Yen (special set).

Short Comment- An Online Game of the King Of Fighters!?

I'm not sure what exactly to make of this, but there's apparently an Online King Of Fighters game being created by a Korean Company or Group. It looks extremely interesting, but I can't navigate the site without errors. In any case, check it out if you're a KOF fan. [ ] -H. Moriarty
