Yeah cancellation at this point would be shocking.

The game is probably at least 80% complete if not more.

And there will also be a KOF anime and the new owners of SNK want to do a major cross-media push, they need a new game for that.

Yay. Open Neo Geo Land again! Yay!

I think i read that SNKP are reverting to calling themselves SNK and i think it's a good thing. Old game developers seem to be going under in Japan so it would be cool to see SNK grow and perhaps even create new IPs without being bound to pride and old practices. Imo, they have cool IPs and it's good to see investments into them.

Sorry, didn't explained myself properly.
As far as I know, no pros have played the game yet
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq4R5otcfy4

I did saw those videos before, hence the "at least giving feedback in between". I would love to read some tweets or at least opinions from Xiao Hai about the game so far. Even thought, I understand where you are coming from. The game looks indeed like a properly made KOF, but my negativism comes from the fact that I'm too hyped for the game, and MGSV taught me not to get hyped based on trailers.

KOF getting cancelled.

Yeah, here's hoping it releases and becomes a success.
My answer above should clarify my motivation on those words too.

Believe me guys, I'm really hoping the best for this game, but I'm in a bad luck streak. Every time I get Hyped, something happens.
Monster hunter 3U had that underwater combat (ruined for me), MGSV... well. And don't make me start with Mighty NO.9!

I'm just a poor soul waiting for KOF to be as epic as possible, Is just that... everything is too good to be truth. D:

We'll have to see where things stand after their next event.

April 25th. Latest build with 24 playable characters in Akihabara, Tokyo. Looks like 150 are eligible to get a sports drink, and 500 a uchiwa (fan).

Now we'll know what "Burn to Fight" will taste like.

I doubt KOF XIV will get canceled, although there might slight chance for that. There has been few examples in recent years where game is close to completion and it got canceled for some reason.

I sure hope that there would be proper gameplay trailer when this Tokyo event happens. So far I've been satisfied with these character teasers, as I'm person who focuses on everything else than gameplay, but good quality gameplay would be good for marketing and would satisfy more gameplay oriented players. I have to agree, I'd like to see how the game plays properly.

I hope that people don't get urge to fight by drinking Burn to Fight....
[spoiler]Some off topic stuff, so I put it on spoilers.
I didn't have high hopes for Might No. 9, so I didn't support the game. Compared to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, these games are quite similar how they got started. Industry veteran leaves a company (s)he has worked for years, because of disappointment. He/She wants to do a game that is similar to past works (Mega Man, Castlevania), a spiritual successor.

Mighty No. 9 seemed like a too much a knock off of Mega Man and early gameplay didn't impress me. Bloodstained seemed like it wanted to Castlevania, but the style went to a different way. Or at least I'd like to think this way, because I put so much money into the game...  [/spoiler]

No, I know disappointment. Been playing KOF since '95 was only in the arcade. XII was a disappointment. I can count on I hand the amount of times I was that hyped over a game as much as XII. It was a crash back down to earth when I  played it . This game doesn't feel like that, but time will tell.

I sent the link more so for the other guys talking in English. Xaio Hai and Dako match is awesome, but I prefer to hear someone in English talking about it while playing and the other guys on there are known pro players.
Say it with me now: "Variable input lag BAAAAAAD!!!"

In this pic theirs 26 characters. Assuming these revealed characters are to be displayed, which 2 will be cut from the playtest?

Hopefully they have decided how the Just Defence system will be implemented & I really want to see the moves list.

Beats me. Is hard to tell. Probably they will leave the ones that they have polished the most so far. And polished or not, Geese will be there for sure.

Speaking visually, Athena looks the least finished out of the revealed characters.

I think they'll leave out Kim and Angel...

@Diavle When Athena throws the death ball/ spirit bomb the clipping from her knees goes through the skirt :(

@Arkayruz Yeah I have a feeling geese will make it.

Yes, she does. Kim looks like unfinished too. Probably their portraits are just a placeholder.

I wonder which build Famitsu will be using in this weekend stream.. Same of Playstation Arena?

Athena looked bit more finished than Kim, but still some room of improvement in my opinion.

I hope the build would be slightly updated versop of the last we saw . Like on "in progress" version of the big event build.
