Who knows what they are doing especially working with sprites. I think they should outsource the sprites making to some korean animation company it will propably be cheaper for them and take less time too.

The last time we had a Korean company making a KOF game, we ended up with KOF 2001.

I guess this is what SNKP has been up to regarding fighting games...The CEO and Kei Yamamoto (sp?) is on the stage with the producers of Xuando Zhiwang.

Interesting. Xuando Zhiwang looks like what I imagined if KOF wasn't sprite-based this gen.

Now I can't look at Yan (Kazuki) and Ell Blue (Sogetsu) the same way ever again. lol

If you knew SS, you'd make the distinction eventually; at least they look like some of the better brothers/siblings out there in FGs.

So I made a separate thread for Xuando Zhiwang. I'm sure you all have things you wanna say about it, so why not go say it there?

This sounds good, but I also am pretty confused by it. KOF was 3D/2D type of game. However, this means they could go full crazy and do 3D type games. Not too cool with the Tekken-KOF style of gaming, I don't see it working.

However, if they didn't retain any staff that did KOFXIII than it could be something totally left-field than a UM or a XIV

TBH I'm no longer excited by such news. It's been one letdown after another with them; I'm sure these employment opportunities are just going to lead to more pachinko and cell phone games.

Sorry for the pessimism, but that's just how I feel. Maybe if they gave a concrete announcement for another game, I'd care.
