First thing's first: WHEN are they going to change the character in the front page? EX Kyo's been there for like forever! I vote Mr. Karate for front page, since he was the character of 2012 IMO.

Done.

SNKP making moves in Japan with the fgc, from the Professor's post on MMCafe:

Quote
Looks like the new year will be starting out with a bang for the KOF tournament scene in Japan, or at least what's left of it. Here's a lowdown from Dune of KCE.


SNKPlaymore and Famitsu's Enterbrain are officially cooperating with one of the first KOF13 tournaments of this year to be held in Japan. This Special Tournament will be held on Jan 14 at a venue in Nishinippori Versus. The registration details & page will be opened in 1-2 days so we'll probably get more details soon.

Rules for the tournament will be the same as another big KOF tournament, 'KCE Cup 5', which will be held on the previous day. Two teams from that tournament will be given seeding at this Special Tournament. (Rules: 2-on-2 team match, same characters can't be used, Alt characters are considered separate.)

This Special Tournament is said to feature some 'new ideas' to make it additionally entertaining. As usual it'll be streamed live on Nico. According to Dune, this Special Tournament will be "a step into a new direction of things". (By that, I assume SNKP is becoming more friendly towards the competitive scene that they seemed to care pretty much crap about.)


Coincedently, EVO champion MadKOF and his teammates are slated to hit Japan around the same date, so things should be pretty interesting.

Now that sounds interesting. I wonder what SNKP is going to do with KOFXIII once they get insight from the tournament? They might be planning something later...

KOF 14, with the return of ten characters and Advanced and Extra mode retweaked for the 13 systems and the 98 systems.  Gonna be HOT.

Mr. Wizard did one hell of a troll with SFXT though. Everyone including Skisonic thought it was XIII and then boom, tears.

The last tournament Dune held that was streamed on Nico was free to view. Nishinippori Versus tournaments usually get uploaded to youtube no prob as well.

I think Dune said something about the KCE stream being free for everyone on twitter.  Not sure about the SNKP Tournament though.

I'm really excited to watch the stream this time.  I think Japan has stepped up their game substantially ever since Climax was released.  It would be tough for team Korea one way or another.

Very much agreed, the Japanese players are my favourite ones to watch right now.

Really hope they leave a bigger mark at EVO this time.
