Here's dates for all of the SNKP games coming out next year according to EBgames.com and Gamestop.com. Of course delays are expected, but there's some titles on the lists that I don't think have been discussed as ports yet. I apologize if these have been posted already.

What about the GBA KOF EX2 game...? That seems like a crazy-fast port for KOF '03, though.

Cool news, still hope they come through with SVC and 2k3 for DC.

I doubt it. Until we're heard anything from SNK, these are just estimates and guesses. That's why most of the dates are on the 1st or 15th of a month. That's random Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Doesn't sound likely.

Most shops put up everything that is even remotely likely to get a release. Brings in preorders and if nothing else, they get some interest on prepaid ones...

I assume that most of these games are coming, but I doubt these dates.

What?

No KOF 2k2 for PS2?

I have the DC version, but it'd be nice to have it in english too.

SSV for the PS2?

Only if they translate that damn story mode.

I know! I can't believe it'd be that fast, I honestly don't think we'll see it before may.

Just looked it up on ebgames.com:

And SiegfriedFM, I know what you mean, that's why I posted about the dates subject to change (as we all know they will).

WHAT THE HELL!? Talk about Delaymore Slug 3 was supposed to be out in january. O well the new ports sound really freaking great though

KOF EX2 was already released, published by Acclaim, if I'm not mistaken. But it was produced in miniscule quantities, which is why you don't see it at big retailers like EBGames (they sold out of their initial rev and they're not carrying it anymore). Same story with the first KOF EX and Guilty Gear Advance. You might still be able to find the US version of the game from an import shop, though.

Also, wasn't the American version of Metal Slug 3 for PS2 choked by Sony for quality assurance reasons? Anyone hear whether that was resolved?

neonightrider
11-19-2003, 08:42 PM
June seems kind of late for SSV, i mean it is out now. Yet KOF2k3 which is not out will be on the PS2 by March. This list does not make sense.

KOF EX2 was axed by Acclaim before it reached shelves. It was recently picked up by Atlus for US distribution. And the Slug 3 vs. Sony thing was just speculation on some people's part to try and explain the constant delays.

I agree, the only explanation I can come up with is that they want to put KOF'03 out closer to the KOF '00-'01 release to get people who liked that to buy the new one (before the fickle next gen fans forget the name KOF). I don't see it coming out that soon though, it's just odd.

I definitely agree that these release dates can't be set in stone yet, especially that lightning fast conversion of KOF 2003. It does kick ass to see how many new releases look to be getting ports in the US. thanks for the great news (if its true) OmegaSaber!

CraigPilecky
11-20-2003, 12:26 AM
That does seem aweful fast for a KoF2003 port. But it is similare to the way Capcom has marketed its 2d fighters in the past 3 or 4 years.

Maybe its part of SNK-P's new strategy. Or maybe... it'll get delayed. I know SNK-P would never delay a game, but stranger things have happend :rolleyes:

oh shut up, 2000/2001 has by all acounts (jap version) been perfect port wise.

Few questions:

Since SS 5 has no rating as of yet, you think they will give it a M rating because of all the blood? I doubt they will bring it over censored.

Same with metal slug - though that could prolly skate by with a T rating.

Chaos in only a few months...fuck yes!!@!!!!

Will any of the ports being released for the PS2 come out for the xbox or does SNK and Sony have some special deal going on? Too bad they don't allow these games to be playable online.

mrchafe
11-21-2003, 06:07 PM
Why do none of these ports ever, EVER come out in the UK? Geez! It's getting silly now! The only port (as far as I know) that's had a release over here was Metal Slug X, and I really don't want to go into the stupid, stupid delays that befell that game.

Hell, I'd buy a PS2 just to be able to play these games! (And I have absolutely no intention to buy one otherwise... that ought to tell you how desparate I am!) Why must the PAL territories be neglected so?

XBox users-base is low in japan and won t get higher so much since next year fall bells the arrival of IBM/ATI powered XBox 2 (presentation of final hardware at the next E3). I think they ll stick to PS2 big big big users base.

SS5 for the PS2 won't be worth much to me unless they translate the story mode like it properly should, or unless they add a certain catgirl as a bonus character like she was in PSX SS4...

I don't think SS5 will get a mature rating just for the blood. All the SS games that were rated from what I've seen, including SS2 for the PC which had the fatalities and everything got a Teen rating.

i ve already preordered it,
but it would be an absolute crime to take out the blood.
i may have to go for the jp one instead.
which actually, doesnt sound like to bad an idea.

Here's a bit of an update, I went to Game Crazy and tried to pre-order KoF '00 and '01, but they wouldn't let me because they said it comes out in 5 days. Which means they've supposedly got it coming on 11/28 rather than 12/10. The guy then told me I could reserve KoF '02 which is coming in April, or KoF 3D which is coming in March. I told him to just put me in a pre-order for KoF EX2 and he said he couldn't because it's not guaranteed to come in...what the hell? Isn't that the point of a pre-order, to make sure a copy gets there?

Anyway, that means KoF 3D is moving up 7 months, and KoF '02 would come out a month later than '03. Somehow I don't believe anything ever said about SNKP releases...Just goes to show how messed up SNKP's release schedule really is.

I don't know about that PS2 KOF '02 in April thing. There isn't a Japanese version of that game released yet for PS2 and I haven't heard of one even being in development, while the much newer SVC is already out. Of course I could be wrong, and I hope I am...

I can't wait for the '00/'01 port though (even though I have the DC versions). After getting used to delays, it will be nice to get it a little earlier than I was expecting. I just hope they're not censored like on american MVS. Yeah, I know that's a stupid remark already made by a hundred people.

I see the KOF00-01 package as SNKP's way of migrating over from DC to PS2.

I think they may just skip 02 and move onto 03 for the PS2 sometime next year.

11-26-2003, 09:01 AM
Since the claim that KOF 2003 is on the way to the U.S. on the PS2 i have been thinking that it so damn strange to skip 2002.. i know they might want to jump on the new hot game they have in the arcades and get it into wanting fans hands before somthing new comes out....but skip a whole yr.??? Im thinking that 2002 will be a pack in..a bonus disk of sorts...maybe if you preorder you get 2002 just like Star Wars did on the Game cube with the old school arcade game on a extra disk... come on Playmore you can do something cool like this for your fans..;)

Well, the DC is dead console these days, but the large user base, and the Atomiswave change got my hopes up. Maybe SNKP will continue to support the console as a 'AES successor', since the AW/DC conversion is simple and the media is cheap:drool:

I have been wishing for years that SNK would pick up the DC as the official successor and begin releasing more games for it until eventually they stopeed supporting the AES and the DC would be SNK's home console.....even rereleasing it under the Neo Geo name....but then I woke up. :(

Dream is not a crime - yet. ;)

But if SNKP really start to use Atomiswave massively, it seems to be reasonable to expect more DC ports.

Well, I had heard about SNKP asking if the people wants a DC port, and after that the DC port was confirmed, with a release date (that I don't remember). But SNKP don't have the habit to talk about WIP to ports. I don't think they will cancel de SVC to DC.

But I don't see much possibility in a SS0 release. SNKP isn't giving much attention to this, even to MVS/AES.

Oh see I was thinking these were dates for the JPN version of the game. After working at a Gamestop for a few years I've come to realize the dates they've got are BS.

I wanna see that put up on SNKP's webpage honestly, but yeah a June 04 release for SS5 on PS2 would be awesome, especially if it was in the US...:D

i think matrimelle and ROTD will probably remain neo only, they would have been ported long ago if they were ever going to be.

This HAS to be bullshit. Nothing would piss me off more than getting rid of the exclusivity of owning the AES version first and having the mainstreamer kiddies getting the game at the same time.

Any and all loyal SNK/SNKP fans without a home system are different, its their choice.

KOF 00/01 is obviously being released as a package the 9th..

Metal Slug 3 has not been given a release date. SNK USA is still in negotiations with SCEA. SCEA has yet to approve their product. That does not mean it is not approved, it only means it is not yet approved. I wrote to SNK USA directly and that was the response I recieved.

I wouldn't believe gamestop or ebgames. They are usually both wrong. Though ebgames more so than gamestop.

However, I went ahead and emailed SNK Consumer USA directly about Samura Spirits Zero and The King of the Fighters 2002.

sorry, but it is inevitable:

"Like sands through the hour glass, so is the constant pissing and moaning of the porties that do not even own a neo,
when tooshort mentions the word inferior "

Much, much better

I think that the Neogeo is probably one of the best systems ever made but also, as I am sure you are all aware, it has always been the policy of SNK to bring its titles to other systems.

The Neogeo system was a phenomena brought about because people, not the company, desired for it to be mass marketed. Yet, even still, SNK kept its products through mail order.

SNK was and unless things change, will always be, both an arcade company and a 3rd party developer.

It is also one thing, to suggest that you do not like a system but it is quite another thing to put someone down because they do.

Not everyone can afford an Armani suit but should you put them down because they have the Armani suit and you do not?

I cannot afford a Neogeo, so, I buy the ports when I can, I play the MVS systems when I can find them, and I play the Neogeo with others if they own the system.

90% of the video game systems I own (excluding the games) were gifts.

What I am saying, is instead of complaining that SNK is making ports, be grateful that you have a Neo and don't have to get ports, but also, be grateful that people like me, who cannot afford the Neo, still have some avenue to play their favorite arcade games.

I've been gaming for 15 years, so I don't think I am less hardcore than the Neo owners. The only thing that seperates us is our bank accounts.

Any and all loyal SNK/SNKP fans without a home system are different, its their choice.

I don't see how people like you can say they want SNKP to succeed, yet not want them to please the mainstream. Production needs cash, and quite plainly, the biggest potential market isn't the niche gamer.

I talked with Ben Herman, president of SNK USA's Consumer Corporation and both Samurai Shodown Zero/Five and KOF2002 will be released later but only if Sony approves the games.

So basically it is like this:

The King of the Fighters 00/01: This will be released tomorrow.

Metal Slug 3: It is done but Sony has yet to approve it. So it may or may not be released.

The King of the Fighters 2002: There are plans to release it at a later date but only pending Sony's approval.

Samurai Shodown 5: There are plans to release it later but only pending Sony's approval.

If the games don't get released, its because Sony refused to allow it.
