They seem to have really improved on that graphics engine, using the Taito 2 system board. Looks impressive and will be a must add title for me.Now to get that freaking arcade stick.

@shinigamikid yeah ok but the problem with your mesage is that it gets a bunch of gamers who are already apprehensive about SNK fighters, yes even though its the year 2011 there are still a bunch of idiots who don't know who Terry, Ryo, Goenitz, etc are but they sure know who Ryu, Ken, Zangief, etc are and thats why you will see them choosing such characters if a new SNK vs Capcom was made. Basically SNK Playmore needs to not only sell well, but also get back on track with new fans who are not intimidated by these non-Ryu characters years before its ok to go ahead and make a new SNK vs title. Oh its ok, I am a huge SNK fan, also Capcom and MK 2d fighters, Sega, Namco, 3d etc too

@GodGundamNT1: We're not free to wish or imagine anything can't we? All I'm saying I wish to happened that. Besides, SNK doesn't need to be crossover with Capcom again if they wanted to. In my opinion, KoF comes first in my favorite fighting game series. then second Street Fighter. All I know this game, KOF XIII, going to be epic, that all.

@shinigamikid how do you expect SNK playmore to make any money or get mindshare when all you are doing is wishing of the capcom vs snk title? We gotta let SNK playmore to get ramping up and buy their games otherwise we wont get squat.

Anybody begging for Capcom Vs. Snk 3 after watching this vid? Simple: use the same graphic engine as KoF XIII, all the grooves style, more characters, customize color swap, and more epic. Kof XIII day one for me.

Dear Creator, Hopefully u read this message. I want old school KoF. It used to be way higher than SF but look at it now. In this tablet era, they still suck in the graphics. I was a hardcore fan, but at present it seems I will only buy it to complete my collection in the shelves. Pathetic, huh ? Some just don't learn to keep up with technology. And for those who disagree with me, the cash I spent for all the series including the arcade coins can almost buy a cheap car in Indonesia. This message is for the creator.

i agree with Dragonsingh3000, capcom vs snk 2 on ps2 is amazing! and i still play it too! the animation in this game looks beautiful!! the characters are animated really well!!! i have to just comment that the backgrounds look quite poor in concept. and also the special effects look really bad. however the actuall characters look really cool! i am looking forward to this!

The game is looking good. I still love the new KoF visuals. With good netcode, this could be a contender.

I got to play this yesterday at Otakon. Atlus was there and they had a beta of this game available to play. It is a good game, really.

Also you know nothing about game design if you think sprites are easy to make and build a game around.

@Gamerbaboo You come off as very defensive and childishs and dont worry I did not hurt your tender sensibilities by thumbs downing dont worry little guys. Anyway some people prefer sprites and imo they look way better in fighting games(not saying full 3d is bad, I freaking loved SSF4 graphics). The thing is with the number of things going on on the screen it looks imo opinon at best with the bright flare sprites provide, not the uber realistic look. Go play maximum impact for 3d that game looked like crap though.

Again, they're using sprites. It's a waste of time and worthless when you're releasing a game for x360 and ps3 when it doesn't use 10% of their power. A game with sprites can be played simply on a ps2 or xbox or an old pc. Above all, it won't look NEARLY good in HD because of jagged characters. KOF12 suffered the same fate, still they don't learn. Oh... and all you stupid fanboys who like thumbsdowning, I've played every single one of KOFs since 94, so go back to your basement.

@andiang hopefully it will be the asst of those two colors and hopefully HOPEFULLY the story mode will clear up PLAINTY of stuff on kof lore like it was said in th interview

andiang

been a fans since junior high. have all the series from '94. best is '98. but it seems more and more ridiculuous. red flame, purple flame, green flame and now there is Saiki with what... black flame ? it looks like a rainbow flame series to me. someone beats some senses into the creator. they are out of ideas how to make KoF like old days. watched some XIII videos and I don't see any killer combos. is it possible to execute it in XIII ? now i have 2 kids but still a fan. it breaks my heart to see how this series ends up nowadays.

@GameMaster1995 tekken 6 was dissapointng both in fighting and story (really? no reveal WHY asuka cleansed jin?YOU REALLY WANNA FK WITH ME ON THAT NAMCO?put a stty ending instead?) sf is getting milked and there is no saying about a freaking 4th version in the works with 10+ chars added. plus the game bores me. you are on a kof video here of course some people amoung the kof fans will be bored of other brands. plusto me tekken and sf do not take themselves too seriously and i'm tired of kids games @1076751 99 was unfinished (year of bankrupcy) 2k and 2k1 were horrible, 2002 was nice 2k3 superb! tag at last! 11 was fine.

@BlackBaldwin at least try it. i'm bored of sf games, mk w/o run button is not fun, mvc3 doesn't have a story......kof is the best right now. to me. only mvc3 doesn't come with only jump to get to your enemy quicker.

King of the fighters was good back in the year 1997 and 1998, after that they pretty much suck.

They arent seriously thinking of releasing this as a full retail price game are they? I mean look at the graphics alone...this looks almost like a Gba or Snes game...isnt this 2011?
