I also had an interview with Falcoon, nice guy but unfortunately the interview will be in Dutch only on a site. This guy can draw alright...

It cracks me up that the first thing he mentions in the interview is the ability in 3D to add bracelets to characters. Now that we know the cartoon "episodes" are going to be released on the web, I hope someone gets a chance to ask how many minutes long each will be. But it was a good interview -- thanks!

Planet-SNK: Many SNK fans are curious about the future of the Fatal Fury series, especially because of the ending of Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Is there anything you'd like to tell us about a Fatal Fury sequel?

Falcoon: Unfortunately, I can't tell you anything at the moment.

:very_ang: :annoyed: He could have at least been like there is nothing in the works or something.

Well, maybe they have something under wraps, and it's still too early for them to share details. I heard a rumor a long time ago about a MotW sequel, but that apparently was just a rumor. Who knows, though?

I want that poster in the backI think that's the cover illustration of that new book that just came out. There was a link to it somewhere here, but I'm too lazy to find it. Maybe there's a poster version of it for consumers as well. Or maybe if people start begging now, SNK USA can get hold of or make some for next year's E3.

Sweet!

Still can't make up my mind which art style I like more, his or Shinkiro (hope I spelled that right)

It oddly looks so similar to the Capcom Design Works cover...

It oddly looks so similar to the Capcom Design Works cover...Yeah, that's the first thing I thought of, too. The cover looks just like it...all the characters, walking to the left... completely shameless. Still looked cool, though. I wish I remembered where the link was.

Nice interview, too bad he gave so many vague "no comment"-esque answers :mad:

Still looked cool, though.Except this one looks more intricately drawn... The Capcom Design Works one was fine but looked more rushed by Kinu Nishimura....

I wish I remembered where the link was.Do you remember the name?... I'd love to get this book if it has more of Falcoon's and Senri Kita's stuff... I really don't like the drawings for the old SNK (like the banner for the website in this thread's link)--They all look the same...

(http://www.kof10th.com/related/new_goods10.php) There are a few links at the bottom; the one above the Amazon Japan takes you to a larger shot of the book with description of contents (in Japanese).

You can order from Amazon Japan from other countries, right? I wouldn't mind the NBC mook from them, either...

Thanx!!!... So it's like the KOF version of Street Fighter Eternal Challenge... Looks awesome despite the almost exact copy of the Capcom Design Works cover :glee:...

Well the back cover does..

I hope they release a North American version that's translated... But then again UDON was responsible for the Street Fighter one...
