"Bro, why are you posting this here. This is a flash game" - So? It is still a fighting game. Not the one with the most depth, of course. But it's still a FG.

Tanzong uploaded a new KOF recap. The King of Fighters XIII.


Unless he does the story of SNK Heroines, this will be the last video until the release of KOF XV.

Also, SNK uploaded this.

From the video description:

SNK OFFICIAL Wrote:Get ready because KOF XV main illustrator Nakata Tomohiro has a special sped-up illustration video for you coming in hot! Please enjoy this rarely-seen look into how he draws his art!

Fatal Fury Lore!

So I recenltly found this:

https://www.facebook.com/teampowergeyser...306781192/

Terry and Andy Bogard are NOT related by blood. They became brothers after Jeff adopted them.

I just remenbered that one fan hypothesis that's been going on since the 90s that says that Geese Howard is Terry and Andy's real father. So far SNK has neither confirmed or denied that fan theory. We just have to wait and see.

Anyway, here are my two cents regarding that fan theory: Is he Terry's real father? No. Is he Andy's real father? Maybe. The resemblance is there.

Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia have been confirmed for The King of Fighters XV. A double character reveal!

Ryo, Robert, and King are the menbers of Team Art of Fighting.

EDIT 2: Man, Ryo looks so wide. Granted, all male characters are more muscular compared to their KOF XIV counterparts, but Ryo's the one who got the bigger gains. Good thing it's not "KOF XIII Ralf and Clark" levels of beefy. Also, where's Ryo's neck?

According to the Season 1 Pass roadmap, only Annie of the Stars and the second character will be released within 2021. We'll have to wait until 2022 for the third and fourth DLC challengers.

The next character to join the roster of Skullgirls 2nd Encore and Skullgirls Mobile is none other than Umbrella.


Here's the press release from the developers as seen on the Skullgirls Steam page.

Moving on from Skullgirls... Sure, we dont have TEKKEN x Street Fighter, but at least we have PC mods to keep us company.


Rumors of NetherRealm Studios making a Marvel Comics fighting game are floating around and Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon might have just hinted at it

Here's some context for those who are confused: Back in 2018, it was revealed that Ryu would become a ranger in the Power Rangers: Legacy Wars mobile game. Chun-Li joined him in 2019. This is a continuation of that crossover.

Here's Chun-Li's trailer for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid.

Here's some fighting game history!


Mirror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGLtfq7xrx0

This is a tech demo for Virtua Fighter 3 that was showcased in the Amusement Machine Operators' Union (AOU) Show in 1996.

This was a year after the release of the PS1... this was also before Quake, before the Nintendo 64, and even before the 3DFX Voodoo 1 were released. Yet here we have a game with real-time graphics that looked like an early PS2 game. Think about that for a minute.

Of course, being so powerful meant that the price for a single Model 3 arcade board was enormous.

While we are still at it, let me remind you that back in the day, fighting games were THE cutting edge graphics showcases, together with racers and shmups/Shoot 'em ups, genres that were really popular in arcades. Be the 2D ones (SNK and Capcom entries mostly) or 3D (Sega, Tecmo and sometimes Namco). That was during times when arcades not only were more powerful than home systems, but also popular enough. That's no longer the case tho, what with arcades going niche and consoles/PC becoming the new gfx showcases - mostly PC, they were always ahead of consoles in that regard. The spot that originally belonged to fighting games, racers and shmups as the 'cutting edge graphics showcases' was filled by other genres like FPS.

This was specially the case with Virtua Fighter, as those games were intended from the very begining to double as tech demos. A video game that also doubles as a tech demo. Pretty cool, huh? An FPS example is Crysis.

I know there are modern fighting games out there that are graphically impressive, but those are more of an exception rather than the norm.

EDIT: Yes, I know graphics and visuals aren't everything. But hey, there's nothing wrong with talking about it from time to time.

Remenber this MUGEN game called Card Sagas Wars? I do. It looked awesome. The last update was on September 2011 and then the team (Ahruon and Orkimides, only two people) just dissapeared.

https://mugen.fandom.com/wiki/Card_Sagas_Wars (MUGEN Database)

I don't know the reason why development suddenly stopped. Maybe it was stated somewhere but I couldn't find any info.

The prototype was finally released on mid-2018.

EDIT: the funny thing is that I found out about Card Sagas Wars making a comeback two years ago, yet I never bothered to post about it here until today. LMFAO.

New KOF XIV vs KOF XV comparison.

Did you know there is a fighting game based on the book Les Misérables . Yes, contrary to popular belief, Les Misérables started out as a BOOK rather than a musical. Game's called Arm Joe, it's an indie/doujin game released in 1998 made by Takase.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpvYkRczXkY

https://web.archive.org/web/200410110615...takase.htm (Interview about Arm Joe with Takase)

Yes, the character Judgement (an original character who did not appear in the book) is basically a Yujiro Hanma knock-off. The hands in pockets, the iconic axe kick, the sneering, etc. That’s Yujiro with brown hair.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GL7-WVuH3E (Judgement gameplay)

So I just found out that there's a tie-in comic to SNK Heroines.

Street Fighter 5's new balance update brings a number of significant changes to the cast (Yes, they nerfed the Dan corner infinite but they did it in a very creative way).

Ralf Jones and Clark Still have been confirmed for The King of Fighters XV. Another double character reveal. These two along with Leona are Team Ikari Warriors.

Yeah, this team formation doesn't really shatter expectations. You know what shattered my expectations, tho? That Metal Slug stage! Notice how there isn't a single Metal Slug character in the background? I don't want to be too hopeful for the inclusion of Marco Rossi in KOF, but this doesn't exactly help. LOL. Then again the game is still in development and they could add those background cameos later on. Who knows?

I like how they kept Ralf and Clark's designs from XIV intact. Those are pretty good designs.

[Obligatory reference to AVGN episode 110]
