Samurai Shodown V Special trailer is a bloodbath

I have fond memories of the Samurai Shodown series, but I never got around to playing Samurai Shodown V. Turns out, I'm gonna have to. Since being revealed as SNK's mystery EVO title, more details about the somewhat forgotten entry in the s...

Samurai Shodown V Special announced, playable at EVO

In no uncertain terms, SNK has said that it's back. No longer chained by just being a pachinko licensing lease factory, it's crafted new games, one of which already made an impact in the fighting game arena. But there's plenty of room ...

Neo Geo shmup Pulstar blasts onto Xbox One

Almost nothing recalls the halcyon days of the arcade quite like a shmup. The twitchy, reactive and often infuriating genre swamped game rooms the world over, ensnaring a community of masochistic fans who are still dedicated to the genre to...

SNK continues world Neo-Geo domination with GOG releases

There are nearly more Neo-Geo Switch ports than actual Switch games -- that's how aggressively SNK and Hamster have been pushing on that platform. Now SNK is looking to another outlet in PC, by way of GOG. 15 games (Blazing Star, Fatal Fury...

Rock Howard makes his mark on King of Fighters XIV

I'm not really sure how, but SNK has really impressed with each of their DLC character announcements. While some folks (like myself) might have wanted Baenessa Vanessa, Whip, and Yamazaki in the base roster, it's been so good to see them co...

Vanessa boxes her way into King of Fighters XIV

The King of Fighters XIV DLC characters have been delivering on every count so far. Sometime after Whip and Ryuji Yamazaki come to the game as DLC, fan-favorite boxing mom Vanessa joins the roster.  I've never been a big Vanessa user, ...

Ryuji Yamazaki snakes his way into King of Fighters XIV

Plenty of the King of Fighters XIV fans (myself included) were chomping at the bit for a possible Yamazaki roster addition as soon as DLC characters were announced, and with Whip confirmed as the first character, luckily Yamazaki was a...

Whip confirmed as King of Fighters XIV's first DLC character

King of Fighters XIV gets a bad rap. It's yet another great entry in the franchise even if the new art style makes it seem more stiff than previous entries. I'll admit it was tough for me to get used to at first, but after putting some time...

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...

That King of Fighters XIV graphical overhaul is here

I'm still very happy with King of Fighters XIV, and although I can't find that many people that actually play it, it's still getting plenty of love from SNK and the community at large. Part of that passion from the former group has tak...

SNK developing new mystery RPG

SNK isn't known for branching out and trying new properties on any given day, but that seems to be what they're planning this year, at least for one mobile project. The publisher that's back from the dead has announced that they're working ...

Review: The King of Fighters XIV

While most people were introduced to fighters with Street Fighter, my first foray into the genre was King of Fighters at a local arcade. I had no prior training or guidance, I kind of just jumped in, picked Andy Bogard, and had a ball....

In yet another hot EVO announcement, Atlus (who is handling publishing duties for SNK) has revealed that King of Fighters XIV will be getting a demo on PS4 -- and surprise, it's out tomorrow. You of course won't get access to the entire 50-...
