Is that the Ikari BG from KoF 96?

Mystery

KoF'96? I don't think so...at least it isn't shown on any of the pictures.
Two are from KoF'95 and one is from SamuraiSpirits2.

Playmore are the recycling masters!
Instead of creating new extra backgrounds,
like SNK did with the DC KoF99 version,
they simply put in some old backgrounds.
I think that's very lame and not worthy for
a SNK game.
What will be the next "extra" background?
Will we fight in front of a Bust a Move
background in the PS2 Version of KoF2001?

Come on Playmore, please WORKMORE!

I see, in your opinion Garou DC is also no "SNK worthy" game? The same goes for LB? I think people will always complain :(
I really don't know what is bad that KOF2KDC uses old backgrounds regarding to strikers.
In KOF2KDC you will have KOF2K + additional Backgrounds (from old games) + AST + art garally + puzzle game. It is just a port an no new game.

WTF?! Last thing I want is some 3d-rendered backround. I think the old BGs are tight as hell. This is some of the best shit since sliced bread. This is definitely on my must have list.

Those who say that kof 2000 sucks cos of the strikers can always turn off the strikers at the options mode and it plays almost like 98.98 is still my favourite but kof 2000 is good too.

No, I don't complain.
I won't buy it and will stay with my NeoGeo
cart. That's what I will do.
If Playmore wants me to buy the DC Version, they
have to come up with something better than
old backgrounds from SNK.
I wonder what happens when they have reused all
the SNK stuff and have to develop their own
games. Then we will see if they can really
create good games or only copy old SNK work.

Yes. The charwoman, the secretary and the night-
watchman have been assumed by Playmore, but the
good men (programmers, artists)have left.
If they sitll had good graphic artists they would not
have to rely on reused backgrounds but draw
some new ones. Not a big job for a good artist,
but if you have no good artists left.... <img src="graemlins/crying.gif" border="0" alt="[Crying]" />

Shinkirou is gone, but it was before SNK felt bankrupt. Tonko is there, and he is imo much better than Shinkirou. Many old programmers and artist are there, (look at KOF2k1 ending credits). In fact Playmore is the same than SNK. Just guess why Playmore get the IP and not Aruze.
Do not forget that Playmore has announced three Games and finished MS4 and ROTD (you can get into vacancies after project, not during a project). Who do you think is working on them?
Has SNK ever created a port with new Backgrounds expect the 3D ones for DC?

KoF2k1 was in development before SNK closed, so
it's no wonder their names are in the credits.
And till then no new game with the old SNK
names came out.
I'd like to believe that Playmore is the old
SNK under a new brand, but somehow I have a
bad feeling about it and the recycled
backgrounds don't help me to believe that
SNK is still alive and kicking.

Well, I like when they do little retro things (like the old Japan teams background). I'd like to see one of the Fatal Fury backgrounds...

Since the ps2 version(kof 2000) is coming in october,there is a slight chance that playmore might do the backgrounds in 3d just to keep up with the ps2 technology and to get more ps2 buyers to buy the game.

No, but neither did they put old backgrounds
from other games in and adverted them as a bonus.
Sure, you could argue that every bonus is a
welcome addition, but I think that's not a bonus,
it's a cheap gimmick and not worth to mention.

Besides my point of view on the recycled backgrounds
I hope that you are right and we will soon
see the same quality games from Playmore, that
made SNK my favorite gaming company.
KoF2001 and MS4 are good games, but they lack
something that Garou, Last Blade 2 and Metal Slug 3
had.
Well, I will wait for KoF2002 coming out and will
hope for the best.

god you're retarted

i dunno why, but your posts make my head hurt.

whats your problem? just because the bg's arent 3d it sucks?

jeez.

this is a port, with some, hence SOME, extra features. thuslly, its not supposed to be an entirely different game like you seem to want it to be.

the bg's arent 3d because 99 out of 100 people hated them.


PLAYMORE = SNK

i really liked the 3d backgrounds on king of fighters evolution. i liked to watch the plane fly over the fighters on the airport stage, it is so goddamn cool. and the garden stage in the rain was the shit.

Neo Rasa

Jigen there won't be any Ikari background in the game. :( Remember that each extra background corresponds to one of the extra strikers, and the general rule is that the earliest/second earliest background associated with the character will be used.

I'm very curious though as to if they'll take this all the way and give us the first levels from Robo Army and Burning Fight for Rocky and Duke Edwards. :D Some Kizuna Backgrounds for Kage Shishioh/King Lion and Kim Young-Mok/Sue Il (Why do all those characters have fifty billion names?) would be sweet as well. :)

I think KOF2K looks pretty good as it is here. We don't need any stinking 3D backgrounds. I hope when Playmore does the PS2 conversion that they don't bastardize it with 3D BGs.

I'm getting my preorder in.

Funny that's why the homecart whores said 99 Dream Match and 99 Evo on the DC sucked, because they didn't like the 3-D backgrounds (even tho 99 Evo's looked 10x better than the Neo ones).

Now it sucks because they aren't 3-D! lol, I love these guys and their 300 dollar carts...

BTW they never were fully 3-D in the first place, they just had a 3-D perspective when the screen scrolled.

No DC port will come Stateside.

PS: 3D backgrounds kick your ass. Oh, and PS2 sucks.

Hey, they are putting the old backgrounds because they are related to the bonus strikers. It's not like they are putting KoF backgrounds on Last Blade 2 :p .

I'm glad they are putting 2-D backgrounds, I have KOF 99 for dramcast and capcom vs snk 2 for ps2 and they suck ass and looks illogical with the 2-D characters.

It doesn't really matter to me, and by the way NeoGeo Games are way better than any fucking Dreamcast game.

I can not WAIT for this one! 2000 is one of my all time favorite fighters, and now that it's getting the one thing that I thought was wrong with it fixed (more backgrounds), this will be KILLER. I love the return of the Neo Geo background, and the SS2 one is nice too! Damn, I love SNK.

Yeah, you heard me, SNK.
