SNKP has been quiet over the past few months, until recently. With unveilings of various titles on the way, KOF2k2UM (a remix edition of 02 - using the Neowave engine), and KOFXII (the new wave for the series). Surprisingly enough, the move to HD has really pushed this series even more; with many videos showing up youtube and various other sites as well.
A few keypoints for these two entries..
- Both keep the same gameplay aesthetics they are known for
- Bringing back a familiar artists for 02UM, and another talented name for XII
- And who knows what other surprises may be in store?
In some interview, SNKP hinted at "keeping an eye at their rivals". http://www.mmcafe.com/cgi-bin/forums/bbs/messages/12901.shtml#44449
With Capcom's flagship title Street Fighter IV making its mark. SNKP may definitely have a chance to get some limelight, just like they used to. (even though the series has had its significance over the years, this is definitely a "rebirth") Seems like their rivalry with Capcom may never end.
What's your two cents about both longtime fighters making a comeback?
And what are some of your fondest memories?
