I saw the news from Game Player's magazine of Hong Kong, here's the link to it:
http://www.gameplayers.com.hk/index/vHotnewsIndex.htm

I'll try to translate the article a little bit

"Based on what we have heard the news for SNK, most are not good, including the takeover by Aruze, but Aruze will still leave the name SNK for the game division. There're many rumours concerning SNK not making games any more or Capcom taking over the game licsences. There'll be changes with Aruze. With the 500 employees SNK has, 200 of them will be transfer to make Pachinko machines and related products, 20 to 30 will be working on Pachinko games for Neo-Geo Pocket, and the remaining will stay in making games for consoles. Bottom line is, the future of SNK is so unpredictable, those who want SNK games after KOF 2000 (home cart) and Last Blade 2 (Dreamcast) will have to wait for a while"

Well, it looks like no one really knows what's going on in SNK next year.

If you go to the page, there's another news in Hong KOng concerning SNK vs Capcom tournament in Hong Kong that was held this Fri (Oct 6), the champ was also the 3rd place winner for KOF 2000.

From what I recall, those winners get to write the strategy guide of KOF games, I have a copy of KOF 99 guide book and the combos are insane, they must have spent weeks trying to figure out the moves.
