Check out this news deal from That www.neonews (http://www.neonews) place!
"4/22/01
NiTD, Sengoku 3, KOF 2K1, and Samurai Shodown 5!
In a recent Press Release, SNK of Japan mentioned that 4 MVS games would be making their way to the Neo-Geo cartridge system. Nightmare in the Dark, Sengoku 3, King of Fighters 2001, and Samurai Shodown 5 will all see an official home release without the aid of certain distributor. According to inside sources at SNK, Samurai Shodown 5 will include a new cast of characters. Look for the return of Haohmaru, Hanzo, and Genjuro , but don't expect the remaining cast to make the transition.

Capcom is a no-go!
Rumors of Capcom purchasing the intellectual properties to SNK were false. According to
an Aruze informant, "It wouldn't have been in Aruze's best interest to sell leading franchises like Samurai Shodown to a company like Capcom.". Just an idol rumor? We think the Capcom rumor was a fabrication.

The truth about SNK of Japan
Don't make light of this: SNK is finally returning to the Western and European markets. SNK had
to relieve its financial burden by filing for chapter 11. Now debt free, SNK will be establishing small distributions centers throughout the Western and European territories to sell their product once again. SNK has also employed 3rd party distributors to pay for distribution and advertising (can we say Apple Photo Systems?).

Some of this sounds great, but if they put all those stinkin' Warrior's Rage characters in SS5, I'll be mighty pissed. Also, what's SS without Nakoruru? I dislike the kawaii nature freak, but still...

He's been in every samurai shodown game except for Warrior's rage!

He has got to be in it!!!!!!!&gt;_&lt;

Ukyo must have succumbed to his TB...

But nevertheless, it would be great to see Samurai Showdown 5 in the arcades anytime soon. To be honest, I've never seen or played it before in the arcade, except once back in my hometown arcade. But it was taken away soon after. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/frown.gif It'll be cool to start learning a new fighting game.

No Charlotte, no Amakusa, no Mizuki, no Nkaoruru, no Shizumaru, no Saya, no none of them? Oy...

Am I the only one who gets the impression that lately, SNK news are as disapointing as they are great? It's like some freaky duality balancing itself out.

But SS5!! I'll like it anyway http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

What if Samurai Shodown 5 will be like Garou: Mark of the Wolves? Retain a certain few old characters and have them set in the future? We could see characters/offsprings of mixed fighting styles from the older characters like Charlotte, Ukyo, and the like. Who knows? Maybe they'll introduce a new storyline where the industrial revolution is approaching...

WOw I hope in turns out like, MOTW!
aswome graphics top animtion.
but more chars.

DO you think it should play like last blade though?

I Kinda think ss series does not require lot's of skills like the kof series and last blade series.

RyoGeo
04-23-2001, 12:00 PM
Wow...crossing fingers...knocking on wood. This is certainly great news, I just hope it's true. As for the new Samurai cast, I wouldn't mind the Garou treatment, myself. A couple old guys, and a bunch of new? Sure, why not.

I like Ukyo too, but he's been dyin' for years. Let him sleep in his box.

Hey. Here's a thought. If SS5 has been in the box for as many years and many of seem to think, perhaps it's actually FINISHED. There is the thought that SS4 was rushed due to the graphic shortcuts. Perhaps we'll get the splendorous look of SS3 with an engine that can satisfy all.

Like I said...fingers crossed.

I may not use the character on a regular, but a SS game without Nakoruru is not SS. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/frown.gif

The could of axed Genjuro!! Honestly, I think they could think of a better rival than some brainwashed swordsman that runs around screaming "KILL!" all the time. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

And does this mean that we will NEVER see a future SS title with either Nicotine, Cham Cham, Sieger OR Gen-An in it??? I don't like the sound of it already... we shall see when it gets released.

04-23-2001, 01:39 PM
Damn where can i get a wallscroll of shiki?
I've only seen the artwork for her in a preview of SS64. So cool! I want her in SS5.

Lou Gojira
04-23-2001, 01:48 PM
What the?! No Gen-an again?! Damn! Did SNK think he was so lame to just retire this ugly, psychopathic ogre after part 2?!

Oh well, a new 2D Samurai Shodown is still welcome. If the graphics wind up getting the Last Blade treatment, I hope it still retains the speed and feel of the Samurai Shodown series. Personalized backgrounds are overdue as well. Maybe we can get those this time out too.

Well, time to start feverishly looking for new employment now. I got a new game to buy!

I guess Genjuro joins the ranks of Nako and Ukyo as a character of a 1000 deaths. Nonetheless, it'll be interesting to see what develops.

He's been my fav since 3.
I hope your mistaken, as he's the only character that will make or break the game for me.

04-23-2001, 09:54 PM
Uh-oh... Galford's apparently not gonna make it. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/frown.gif At least Haohmaru will be there- he's the main hero.

At least an SS5 is on the way. &lt;b&gt;VICTOLY!&lt;/b&gt; http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

It'll be nice to see SNK reenter the Western market. I'm hoping they'll get arcade owners to bring back the Neo.

Genjuro is awesome! He's the best arch nemesis there is! He's way stronger than Haohmaru and he has the skill to kill him. He's a psycho, but he still has a sense of honour (Look at the SS2 ending, he could've killed Haohmaru when he was weak, but he didn't)

Anyways, about the MOTW treatment... Um, didn't SNK already try this in SS3? I mean ditching previous characters and adding in new ones that are somewhat related to the old? Then fans got all pissed and they had to add the lost characters back in SS4?

Well, anyways, I guess this is the second time around where they're adding a new cast.

It would be cool if they could have a new cast and add in only a few characters from Warriors Rage/64.

Neo Rasa
04-23-2001, 10:27 PM
I think we're all overreacting to this a bit. I mean when they said expect the return Hanzo, Genjuro, and Haohmaru. I think it just implied that only the most popular characters would make it, so Ukyo will be in there, etc. Hell Nakoruru is the overall most popular fighting game character in Japan practically so it's not like she won't be in it.

Kibagami died in his SS64II ending. You might want to talk to HIDDEN WARRIOR. He knows this site that gives word for word the endings for all the characters in SS64II.

Wow! That's great... at last we would see the glorious return of SS5!! (I bet Taiso's real happy now) and I hope it turns out to be good... They should put in Galford (since his sprite is considerably similar to Hanzo.. and they are Ninjas), Ukyo, Nakoruru, Charlotte & Jubei should make the cut... but anyway, I'm sure excited about this!

I wouldn't count on SNK giving it the MOTW animation treatment, considering how long they have been using the KOF engine for that series.....

No shit? Ah that sux! He's th man.
I hope he died well.
I wonder if its a final death for him or not?
I seem to remember people dying in either
1 or 2 (cant remember exactly) but they still appeard in later games.

Thanks for the tip. Ill contact HW & ask him about that.

I understand that after SNK clears it debts, they can re-enter the market and produce games. That being said, do you think there will be a U.S. home release of SamSho 5, or do you all think it will be Japanese home and MVS only? Also, if SNK does come back to the west and produces games....well...that will most likely be the end of NGF. I'm sensing a pseudo religious trend here. "Neo lovers oppressed by an evil tyrant distributor, a voice above hears our pleas and sends a savior (the return of SNK)" LOL http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Well this is a godsend, SS series was always my favorite. i hope they keep most of them! and to make it even better they should give each char. their own background. bring back the REF! and chicken tosser. and we can't forget slicing them in half to get the gold. these are things that made this series so great and unforgetable. i'm glad they kept Haohmaru and Genjuro in, but the one they should bring back is Gen-AN. Oh one other one that i really miss is WAN-FU. all in all i hope they can balance out the characters like they did in 2 and not new ones that don't fit in for the series. they probably could of kept everyone in plus new characters and backgrounds with the newer gig carts! will have to wait and see. hupplark_39

04-24-2001, 11:36 AM
Yeah Nick you're right. I forgot Genan got fried by Mai in SS1. LOL! Ukyo and Nakoruru died in SS2. Basara (Again?) and Amakusa (???) died in SS4. Ukyo also dies in SS64II.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I think 2D versions of the 3D games would kick butt.

Well I just tried to go to nakoruru64.virtuaslave.net where you can get the endings for SS64II put the page doesnt open.I think its down or something.

YELDELL GW,ukyo did not die in SS2.Thats a big misconseption samurai shodown fans have due to the fact most havent played the 3-d titles.Ukyo is in all the sequals after part 2 thus didnt die in 2 thus his ending in 2 didnt happen.Unlike nakoruru,ukyo has no power to reincarnate himself.

here a nice place:http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Arena/9305/

you'll like it.It doesnt have the endings but its a nice site for SS fans.

I hate to burst everyone's bubble here, and no offense to Neolord, but I haven't seen ANY mention of Samurai Shodown 5 ANYWHERE else on the net. Has anyone else? I really can't believe this kind of news unless I see confirmation from places like madman's cafe or the Magic Box.

Why does everyone here just take this news as the absolute truth? Just because its posted on the web, and at a page that NEVER gets new news? Sorry, I don't buy it. WHERE IS THE PROOF?

Y'know, I'm not going to argue with you, Chimp, but I used to get news from SNK
long before any of the magazines did back in the day. Ask anyone who used to read my old rag, Neo Enthusiast, and they can tell you that I had a nack for getting the scoop on many things. I printed information about Metal Slug 1 months before EGM even knew it existed. Its safe to say that I'm not one to gossip, even though you're making me out to be someone who does.

Oh wait, you want 'real' proof. What proof does MadCafe and MagicBox have when they print information about Neo-Geo?

Nick_th_fury:
Actually I hate to tell you, but Genjuro dies in the end of SS64II by being stabbed in the back by a little boy. I don't think you would consider that dying well.

Here is the ending:

The time for duel has come.
Genjuro's sword rebounds off of Haohmaru's sword and then raises up.
Baiohdoku (his swordís name) emits light.
Genjuro:"Haohmaru, I gonna kill you!! When he turns around, a boy stands, stabbing Genjuroís back with a short sword.
Boy:"You did this to my father...."
The consciousness is indistinct. The wound on Genjuro's back gets widens, in the spray of blood that dyes his body, Genjuro sees his mother.
During the setting of the sun, Genjuro leans on Haohmaruís shoulder, and comes down on a stone step.
Genjuro grumbles:"...I want to drink Sake....
Haohmaru:"...Let's drink tonight...
The setting sun seems to show Haohmaruís eyes with tears in them.
Genjuro:"....You fool...."
Genjuro smiles and gradually closes his eyes.

Wow, you PREDICTED that KOF2K1 would come out? And that means that you've got an INSIDE LINE? What a JOKE, if there were ANY blind prediction EVER to be made, that would be the SAFEST one to "guess at", eh?

Face it Neolord, you're a small-tymer in the Neo world, despite your one little 8 page fanzine printed on your little 4PPM inkjet printer . . . and your "site", such as it is, is a joke. You know that, and everyone else pretty much recognizes it . . . so why not just admit it and move on?

And also, why do you say "we" all the time, when its only "you"? There is no staff of people at Neo News Magazine, just you and your trusty Canon Bubblejet printer, and your pet dog chuckles . . . http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/tongue.gif

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Face it Neolord, you're a small-tymer in the Neo world, despite your one little 8 page fanzine printed on your little 4PPM inkjet printer . . .

It's 11 pages, Chimp -- apparently you haven't read it! Great of you to make assumptions without actually seeing it. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif



<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">and your "site", such as it is, is a joke.

I do what I can on my spare time. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif Since you're such an authority on things, I guess it does 'suck'.



<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">You know that, and everyone else pretty much recognizes it . . .

Sure they do, that's why people compliment the work I do.


<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">so why not just admit it and move on?

I'll move on from this conversation because its obvious to everyone here that you''ve been put up to this.


<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">And also, why do you say "we" all the time, when its only "you"?

I don't have enough people to help me publish Neo-News (I'll admit to this), and I do most of the leg work myself, but only one person knows this. I will not mention his name.


<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">There is no staff of people at Neo News Magazine, just you and your trusty Canon Bubblejet printer, and your pet dog chuckles . . . http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/tongue.gif

I guess this is the part where I'm suppose to be offended. Well, yes, the means used to produce NN isn't the same as EGM, but I care enough about the Neo-Geo to spend money on it in this fashion. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif I have staff writers -- hell, just ask Lee James!

He's helped me out on some deals, and I've seen how he conducts himself around these forums. He seems alright to me. Where the hell is all this animosity coming from chimpmeister? You're talking shit about NeoLord like he's one of Dion's cohorts or something. Hey, if NeoLord is wrong, we'll see sooner or later. If he's right, we'll see sooner or later about that too. But jeezis, chimp, you dive in swinging with both fists, and why? And since NeoLord's site is such a waste of time for you to look at, where's your superior site? Put a link up and show everybody how much more informed and in the know you think you are. Damn, this is pitiful...

hupplark_39: look at my first post in this thread, I NEVER called Neolord a "liar". I just said that I wouldn't believe the news unless it was confirmed by a REAL website like Magic Box or Madman's Cafe, thats all. Check it out. Neolord put a snotty response up (check his response), so I decided to have a little fun with him . . . a bit of a minor flame or two. All in good fun, you can see that most of my stuff was joking anyway, look at the posts for heavens sake!! SENSE OF HUMOR, PEOPLE!!

Lou: See above, look at my original post, look at Neolord's response. You can see that I never started out in a negative way. But again, look at most of my posts, they're JOKING, I mean all that Jedi Knight stuff and the fake new games like Legend of Failure Joe: The Turd Returns . . . that's all joking stuff, can't you see it?

No problem, hupplark_39. I've seen you post here a lot and you're cool by me. Neolord just gets very sensitive when he perceives even the SLIGHTEST criticism of his stuff, thats all. He's still complaining about it, he just doesn't get it. All I said was that I wanted PROOF at another site, thats it. And he took it personally, and cried about it, as he so often does . . . ah well, thats just the way he is I guess . . .

Its good to see you again, Joe. How have you been... how is Richard? I didn't mean
to come off as 'snotty' to Chimp, but I still believe that Chimp is trying to weasel his
way out of this. The things he said about me were uncalled for and I would never
low ball someone the way he did me. I forgive you, Chimp. A sense of humor is one
thing, but attacking someone on a personal level (like you did to me) is the sign of an
immature person.

I think Joe and the others should read the entire thread before anything occurs. Here's the post that basically started all of this:

Y'know, I'm not going to argue with you, Chimp, but I used to get news from SNK
[b]long before any of the magazines did back in the day. Ask anyone who used to read my old rag, Neo Enthusiast, and they can tell you that I had a nack for getting the scoop on many things. I printed information about Metal Slug 1 months before EGM even knew it existed. Its safe to say that I'm not one to gossip, even though you're making me out to be someone who does.

We don't normally print everything that comes our way because its usually common knowledge by the time we update our website, but when we had the chance to get this info a month before it was released , we just had to be the first to print it. Proof? Hmmm.... I told evenryone here that KOF2K1 would be coming to Neo-Geo, but everyone ignored me. Funny.... KOF2K1 will be released at the end of the year, no? Gee, I wonder.... Oh wait, you want 'real' proof. What proof does MadCafe and MagicBox have when they print information about Neo-Geo? I recall one of the above sites writing an article about the NeoStar claiming that it was a reality.... where is that system anyway?

Don't make light of this: SNK is finally returning to the Western and European markets. SNK had
to relieve its financial burden by filing for chapter 11. Now debt free, SNK will be establishing small distributions centers throughout the Western and European territories to sell their product once again. SNK has also employed 3rd party distributors to pay for distribution and advertising (can we say Apple Photo Systems?).

So, SNK has money again?
Hmm...off-topic, it may be. But doesn't owning money include the possibility of creating anime?

All I EVER originally said was that I needed PROOF about Samurai Shodown V BEFORE I would BELIEVE it. I even said "no offense to Neolord" but that I would believe that kind of information when reading it on a REAL news website. What's wrong with saying that? Magic Box or Madman's Cafe, or whatever . . . but you're going to believe a site that pulls the rumors out of a hat, and updates its news section like 5 times a YEAR?!?!

It's about VERIFICATION, thats all. We see so many bullshit rumors, posted all over the net, that we cannot TRUST them just because they're UP ON SOME WEBSITE!! If Neolord really wanted to verify that news, he could provide some backup, not just a paragraph or two pulled out of the air!! Instead, he posts the "official press release" with no backup at all . . just a bunch of words.

Anyway, thats all I said originally, but Neolord is SUPER SENSITIVE to any "criticism" of his stuff, and he freaked out and acted all high and mighty about it after my original post. So, I played around a little, thats all. Check my posts, they're mostly tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic humor as Biomotor Unitron correctly pointed out. I mean, do you think I'm NOT joking when I mention Legend of Failure Joe: The Turd Returns? Or my two new "weapons" from Samurai Shodown V, the kanatanakina and shimukisatu? Have you ever heard of those? No? Well NEITHER HAVE I, SINCE I JUST MADE THEM UP OUT OF THE AIR!!!

See, a bit of joking, and still he freaks out and takes EVERYTHING SERIOUSLY. Even the thing about his dog, chuckles . . . I thought that was kinda funny myself . . . http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/tongue.gif

So, in closing, Michael needs to not be so sensitive, and also maybe SHOW SOME PROOF ABOUT SAMURAI V, instead of just posting it on his site which never has current news anyway . . . K? http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Sure, here's the whole "press release" which is still up at his site, under the "news" section:

4/22/01
NiTD, Sengoku 3, KOF 2K1, and Samurai Shodown 5!

In a recent Press Release, SNK of Japan mentioned that 4 MVS games would be making their way to the Neo-Geo cartridge system. Nightmare in the Dark, Sengoku 3, King of Fighters 2001, and Samurai Shodown 5 will all see an official home release without the aid of certain distributor. According to inside sources at SNK, Samurai Shodown 5 will include a new cast of characters. Look for the return of Haohmaru, Hanzo, and Genjuro , but don't expect the remaining cast to make the transition.

Well I gave GUI the info about how to actually FIND your "news" section, because the problem is that your "site" front page LOOKS LIKE the "news" section of your page, but lots of people didn't understand that your front page isn't the "news" itself, they have to click on the little tiny "news" button on the right side . . . and the word "news" itself on the right side isn't even part of the hotlink for the "section". Kinda makes it not very friendly to get into. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

As for your flame thread that you foolishly started in the NEWS AND RUMORS section (guess you don't understand what the News and Rumors section is for), whats the big deal? Caris Nautilus is just a moron who posts flaimbait all OVER these forums, his credibility is crap. If that's your justification for your third grade name-calling, I think you might want to grow up a little . . . Mikey. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I can't believe you're still talking about this! lol I don't think Gui was looking for the url to NN -- he was wondering why the following link was broken:

http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/Forum10/HTML/001320.html

The thread you're after is in the War Room, Gui -- look for a thread labeled Chimpalicious.




BTW, when is the next massive issue of Neo News coming out? 2002? http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Can't wait, another 7 pages JAMMED with Neo News, fresh from the . . . well, from wherever. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I'm going out on a limb http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/wink.gif here: I believe Yuckydog and 2 other people are behind this. Prove me wrong, because I have e-mails from him (Yuckydog) that mimic the same rants about Neo-News that Chimpalicious is saying in this thread (i.e. he didn't like the irregular schedule,the page length, the printers we used, and the fact that we didn't use expensive high gloss paper). Now tell me, how could you know about the page length and print quality of Neo-News when you've never seen an issue, unless you spoke to someone who didn't like it? http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif I bet you have an 'insider' track on this (nudge). http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif You'll have to do more than post a bunch of childish, 'nyah nyah, you suck! 'posts to get rid of me, Chimp.

I'm going to leave this thread for another day -- let's see if your childish instincts can resist the temptation of posting another 'great' reply. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Chimpmeisterís attacks can be beneficial. I remember reading a post he made on the dhp list concerning neo-geo.com. He criticized the horrible overuse of java (hover buttons). He didnít hold back at all. You see, the main page had hover buttons for links, in addition to the menu. After reading his post, I was motivated to revise. However, it took me several months and anther 50 complaints to get around to changing the menu.

Iím surprised by Neolordís recent behavior. Neolord is handling the attacks quite calmly from what I read. Itís as if he doesnít want to fight. I am curious to hear the source of the news concerning the home cart releases.

His 'attacks' would be beneficial if they actually consisted of constructive criticism. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I have no reason to fight, Chimp. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif As for changes: oh... they're coming soon enough. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/wink.gif
