here is the Garou team story from the engrish version of KOF' 2003 website:

"At the appointed coffee shop, the figure of Terry Bogard is still nowhere to be found.
The seats of the open terrace are fully exposed to view from the street. The two sitting in the delicately constructed chairs are men of exceptional build. Between the two, one is the champ of Muay Thai kickboxing, and the other is the king of professional wrestling.
"...Don't sit there like a clam. How about a cup of Java?"
"No."
"Look, if you'd just take off that bird mask, you'd be able to drink it, right?"
"It's not a bird. It's a griffon mask."
"Whatever! Take it off. Now! Thanks to your whack little mask, even I've begun to feel like a complete freak."
"Being noticed is the fate of a hero, don't you know?"
(...Terry, Andy, enough playing around. You'd better show up, like, yesterday...)
Mind you, Joe is not averse to standing out. But standing out and being part of a freak-show are two different things. Being noticed has got to be on Joe's own esthetic and philosophical terms.
"Hey! It's Tizoc! Tizoc the Griffon! How about an autograph?!"
"Hah, hah, hah! You got it, buddy."
"All right! Thanks!"
Flushed with joy, the child begins to leave...then he and Joe's eyes meet.
"U-Uh, can I get your autograph? You gotta be the Great Ninja Mister Minami, aren't you? You lost the title match with Tizoc recently and became his bootlicker, I hear."
"OK, kiddo. Listen and listen good..."
"Y-Yeah..."
Had you removed Joe's trademark headband right now, you'd probably be able to make out the vivid blue vein bulging out from his temple.
"I...am really...the one and only..."
"Great Ninja, Mister Minami, aren't you? Sorry. Guess I'm late again."
"Geez, Terry. You're ancient! How about being on time just once, eh?"
With his typically casual air, Terry Bogard made himself known. Squatting down, he looks into the kid's eyes.
"If you're not polite and leave out the 'Mister' he might turn you into a toad with his ninja arts. Mister Minami's pretty tough, you know."
"U-Uh OK. I'll be careful."
"You've got your autograph. Now we've got some important stuff to talk about now, so why not go play over there?" "OK!"
Joe, having been referred to as the 'pretty tough' ninja, throws a hissy fit and takes it out on the waitress by yelling for an alligator steak. Terry orders a cup of coffee.
"Take a chill pill there, Mister Minami."
"Hmph. You got the kids eating out of your hand as always."
"You lack the knack with tykedom."
"Butt out, bird face. So, where's Andy? This tournament...I'm talking KOF, of course. He's in, isn't he? He's doing it, right?"
Terry shrugs his robust-looking shoulders.
"Hey, hey! What do you mean? You're not telling me this beak boy'll be subbing for Andy, are you?"
"It's not a bird. It's a griffon mask."
"That's right."
Whether affirming the nature of the mask or Andy's substitution is unclear, but, at any rate, Terry nods. The coffee arrives. The alligator steak doesn't.
"You remember Andy's disciple, don't you, Joe?"
Terry inquires of his friend while he heaps cream and sugar into his coffee as any Yank like him would.
"Disciple? ...Oh, yeah, that something-Maru guy. Wasn't he just a kid?"
"The mumps, I'm told."
"..."
The disciple's condition isn't fatal, but the big A's worried about aggravating his condition. That's why he didn't want to leave Japan at this time...anyway that's the way Andy's message read."
"Hmph. Talk about your doting masters."
"Hey, shut up. In spite of that, he's a tough task master. But I guess that's different from training. I guess you'd call it 'koshi-kondo' in Japanese."
"'Koshi-kondo' ...the phrase that expresses the sublime relationship of trust between master and disciple. The Japanese language sure is cool. Seems your brother is, too."
"He can't match you, champ."
Terry and Griffon. The two exchange a firm handshake across the table.
"Hey, hey. Try to get along, you two. Jeesh! How about I teach you another sublime Japanese expression? It goes, 'Atchi ni ike, kono busu!' Try it the next time you're hitting on chicks."
"Wow. What does it mean? This KOF's sponsor is Japanese, you know. Mixing a little Japanese into my victory speech marks the consideration of a true gentleman."
"Okay, I'll teach you a load of beautiful Japanese expressions after we win."
Terry sucks out the contents of his coffee cup to the last drop.
"Well, here we are. We go with the team we have here this time. I'm counting on you."
"I've got no complaints. As long as chickadee face doesn't cramp our style."
"I've no objections. As long as we fight fair and square, I'm in."
"OK! Everything's copasetic. With this solved I can finally pay my respects to my father."
"? ...Oh, a little memorial visit, is it?"
"My ritual before the tournament. I hate to say this but could you guys wait here awhile?"
"No way! You've got to be joking! You'd have me hang out here longer with the mysterious bird boy? I'm coming along with you."
"It's not a bird. It's a griffon mask!"
"Can it! If the beak fits, wear it. Bird boy! Bird boy! BIRD BOY!"
"It's a griffon mask!!!"

Terry reclines back in his chair and looks up at the sky. His long hair parts to reveal the high wide sky above.
(Pop, this year...what can I tell you?)

"I said stop up your cakehole, bird face! Chew on a caterpillar, why don't you?"
"How about you buttoning up?! For I am Tizoc, the gentlemanly griffon!!!"

(...It looks like it's going to be a raucous and tiring tourney.)"

here is the main storyline (traduced with babelfish):

"To a world's largest scale the grapple conference of the highest level.
The "king of Fighters"

ルガール collapsed on that stage, could seal オロチ, also ネスツ kept collapsing and.

The numerous drama which is unfolded.
But those at the time of what being hidden with a some thick curtain, touching the eye of the public was not.

While including such a connection, this year king of Fighters opening decided.
The sponsor of the conference is existence of puzzle again, that opacity it receives, at the various places, various guesses are disordered and fly.

But in spite even to that, successively the experienced grapple house which states participation.
When the participant whose degree of distinction is high verifies that large number it is, also each media which is prudent, started picking up KOF simultaneously to that.

The new rule "multiple shift" which now is introduced from the conference, in other words announcement of free work shift system into boundary, that develops to social phenomenon, monopolizes the topic in the world.
The newspaper magazine like every week united the special edition article centering on this rule where strategy of speedy tournament development and the team unit is required simultaneously, with TV, the abrupt critics hitting the desk, the everyday life which thrives the thermal valve continued.

"The party who is strong to the world, still absurdly is",
Fang sword, griffon mask, duo remaining overnight, シェン Woo.
...... And, ash クリムゾン.
Their names the fact that it reaches the point where it is known gradually via the net just this KOF noise was opportunity.
As for them being accustomed to the new star which creates disturbance in KOF?
Or......

In everyday life of excitement, preparation advances steadily.

In order that atmosphere of street fighting spirit is produced, the meeting place was set to city, but pattern of the tournament comes to the point of with to be relayed broadcast with the enormous screen, during period, the stadium of several tens of thousands of human accommodation scales, is guaranteed at the city of here and there.


2003 December.

The time it visited.
This year the curtain of the stage rises."

And finally the Outlaw storyline (traduced with babelfish):

"Hay hay hay! ど coming punk. As for there the ぜ which is we seat? "
"......"
Whether "シカト. The ギース way, this kung fu guy, educating a little? "
"There is no place and the like where you transfer to the dog",
"...... The ぜ which is not audible well. Speaking once more, everyone? "
"As for address of the pet dog you said that it is the kennel. With this satisfaction? "
"て め ぇ......"
"ヒャハハハ, good ぜ brothers. Seeing. Swiftly the っ ぱ じ め! "

That, was, the respective first voice of the day when for the first time 3 people make the face meet.
Stick technique using of the English graduate, ビリー Caen.
Broker and Yamazaki dragon two of darkness.
And, the fist method arrival which will be been comfortable the mark っ it is the man of the long hair.
"The certain て め ぇ, the fang sword you said. To live long and the fungus り ゃ, to study the how to be effective of the mouth "
"......"
That man that was young still, it manages the fist method of the hardness type which begins eight polar fists with the physique which is made the っ rear end, and had what which the air around Hari is made to stuff. As for the commendable kind of human who fears with that, the one person it is not in this wide room.
The person and only 1 person it is in this town which can gather those them in one hall.
ギース Howard.
To a commander-in-chief of Howard connection, the expert of old martial arts. And it has enormous power in reverse side society, it is the dominant person of the darkness.
"Taking the hand, dance of love dances, with the word cup......"
Smothers Hamaki bitterly ギース where deeply chair beam way, to turn 180 degrees chairs of skinning, the back was directed to everyone.
"Before the client, doing フリ whose already relations are a little good how, is? "
That town and southern town view is possible from the first floor of the high rise building which disdains around.
When "it is the client? The intention of employing this we?"
As for the fang sword you stood up.
"Viewing which is the _. As for we there is no interest in the grapple conference and the like. It makes return ",
The shoulder the め which is less crowded "is made favorite ビリー, but it is good," that you murmured small, ギース called for the back to the cartridge.
"This town...... in southern town, the various humans come",
The fang sword ignoring the word of ギース, directed the foot to the door.
"For example, the girl of the Japanese who searches the older brother of whereabouts obscurity,"
The foot of the fang sword stopped.
Therefore "it is what. There is no relationship in we ",
"That so is. But in this town the multitude human comes to in addition to. Your way there are no either times when it is not report that the fist method errand which is similar well was, among those, ",
Howard connection has supplied all information of southern town in the hand. Also the fang sword has consented the over and.
"Person in this town? ...... Never with some purpose, in KOF "
It is "as for that from the わ. But the man who mingles in the human of several 1000000, your way it is impossible to search alone. It isn't simple story? Your way it wins in the conference. Your way purpose being able to serve me. It is the loan borrowing releasing ",
"...... Hmm. It probably will be good. The story, it is good riding ",
"ケッ, well it is the guy funny. The ギース way, if as for we and others it is dense and the extent which participates, you think that the one which even the dog is united is マシ but don't you think? "
Therefore "ギャハハハ and the て め ぇ anyhow the pet dog. The air is agreeable with the dog, probably will be! "
"Yamazaki て め ぇ......"
"The っ and the dog start to bark in the customer, it is the ぜ which the ぁ and training does not become. ギース? "
"Is dirty the ぇ snake guy. Probably making quiet? _ ぁ? ! "
"Good quality it is, ビリー"
Also ビリー puts out the one where the vitality is too multi, it has the mental construct which what you look at the blood reaching up to Yamazaki calls pleasure from some and is refracted. If the existence, ギース is not in this place, while either 5 seconds do not pass, it probably is to begin the murder being agreeable of the blood seeing mud.
"...... In any case is, it has participating in latest KOF, with your 3 people. Giving remuneration sufficiently and, necessary information investigating increasing organization. This is business. You think that that exceptional is good condition, but don't you think? "
Yamazaki continues to laugh floats the insanity, ニヤニヤ in expression.
The fang sword while it is non expression, does not remove the gaze from ギース.
ビリー that it is dissatisfied, enters with displeasure as dew, but loyalty heart to ギース in order to exceed that, now stored also the proud stick which it has been ready to labor assistant, had made placid.
"If there is no objection, it is good",
ギース turned the chair again, just was formed directed the face to the member "of the team".
"Your way and the like teamwork and the like expecting, it is not, but it wins with KOF. Having expecting remuneration with the result other than that, it is troubled, "
"Result other than that? "
It has not blended sarcasm or joke in tone. There was a self-confidence which does not have the times when it fluctuates in the fang sword. The self-confidence for the power of oneself, made that be.
"Above we participates, the result is one. "Winning,
"It is good",
"To be and be, the broad-minded ギース way. You hear we request, well? "
When "...... and guaranty how, being able to rage at the office, it is annoyance. Try "saying
"It is the blood",
When "...... the blood, is? "
"We ぁ blood making a noise recently, don't you think? manner the ぇ it is, don't you think? know, whether...... the ちっ and the fool to do with the tournament and ' do too much ' the ちま う the ぇ, as for there the ぜ ぇ which is asked may"
It had the light where the eye of ギース is coldhearted. That is instant.
"Favorite margin. If ' accident ' with in the range which can be processed, "
"ヒヒャハハハハ! ! It is, the て ぇ ぜ! The っ て which also motivation comes out with this it rubbed ",
"It ends story with that, the shelf? So to the conference day, at the very most you relax, but it probably will be good "

When the fang sword and Yamazaki designate the room as afterwards, just ギース and ビリー were left in.
"The ギース way, it is the latest conference, but......"
"The is dense Toda ビリー, your way, if it does not convey, if it is there is a thing",
"っ"
"It is proper to watch Yamazaki's conduct, but the eye is separated from also the man, that fang sword. Especially when the human who contacts the person is, report margin "
"It consented. By the way the ギース way, latest KOF, the sponsor does just being to be who? "
"......"
As for ギース you did not answer, directed the back of the chair of skinning again.
After the silence, saluting, the retreating/quitting room it did also ビリー.

Those where 3 people of the team again assemble to one hall mean especially of the conference day."

Are we supposed to believe that any of these "90's men/metrosexuals/panzy boys/androgenous freaks/foppy hair transexuals" can actually fight?

maybe they should rename it Queens of Fighting.

At least Ryuji's there, but his style will be the same, therefore I could just play another KOF that he's been in or something, instead.

Agreed, Gato's coat looks like it would be two sizes too big, and Iori still wears the same ol' early-90s punk/bondage pants stuff.

Oh and gozu+mezu, thanks for the story bits.

I'm pretty sure they DIDN'T. Shawn released Matrimelee, not NGF.

I think someone is confused, that just stated what games Playmore owns the rights to. If I can get the link to that PDF file, it never said NGF had rights to those games.

11-20-2003, 08:56 AM
I think this is the grand irony of Engrish... having won the lawsuit, SNKP is not capable of communicating what the outcome actually was.

And speaking of Engrish, how about the translated KOF 2003 webpage that was just posted?

"Now, The Portal To A New Punchfest Opens."

I highlighted the ones in particular that should not be on there.

Besides what the hell is KOF 2k2 plus?

We all know for a fact NGF could not have had rights to the aforementioned games.

afaik the plus versions were mvs games that allowed all bosses playable, etc

looks like maybe somebody screwed up at playmore and posted their entire games list? interesting to note that warlocks of fate is on there.

That list is wrong to begin with. That's the same list included in the injunction as SNK properties. Magical Drop belongs to Data East, not SNK.

NUMBER 91 SAYS IT ALL.....

WHY WOULD SNK ALLOW NGF TO MAKE CONVERSIONS?

:lol:

"Is that your final answer?"

:lol:

So basically, SNK probably didn't even look at the bullshit list which is an exact copy of the list NGF had on their site.

I can see it now. SNK basically said "fuck it" to put the choke chain on.

I think someone is confused, that just stated what games Playmore owns the rights to. If I can get the link to that PDF file, it never said NGF had rights to those games.

Get your facts straight - Shawn doesn't release anything.

He has the distribution rights for the English AES version of Matrimelee he didn't release the game - Playmore released the game. Dozens of retailers had stock of the Japanese version for distribution.

Anyway, that list makes no sense at all. As someone pointed out Magical Drop is an IP of Data East, and KoF 2K1, 2K2, MS4 and Matrimelee do not fall under SNK Corp of Japan... they'd already gone under by then. They're IP's of SNK's replacement - SNK-Playmore.
Notice Waku Waku 7 is missing from the list? Yet they produced an English insert for it. Zupapa! and MPE are also missing

In regard to the NGF stuff, here's my take. Purely speculative, but I think it makes logical sense.

Regardless of what is listed or not on any given page, I find it totally possible that while SNK Japan was in its death throws that it sold rights to the twins to do their inserts. Big deal. Dion and Chris had been making said inserts for years prior to SNK Japan folding. Getting rights after the fact does not acquit one of the crime of piracy, to say nothing of their shady business practices which, in my mind, is the real reason to despise them anyway.

I can already hear their shouts of truimph, but the truth is they got these rights after they had, for years, been essentially bootlegging the same stuff. They're still shady, money grubbing, dirtbags that don't deserve the respect of the poeple interested in Neo Geo.

The thing I find hilarious is that these two are now attempting to propagate the story that somehow Shawn is the reason that Neo games are so expensive (meaning the secondary market). What a joke. I guess Shawn runs eBay. And I have personally read emails from Dion whereupon he specifically stated that one of his missions was to preserve the value and thereby the exclusivity of Neo Geo games in the secondary market. It lines his pockets to do so.

Don't be fooled. Rights after the fact are no rights at all. They are still scum and, were they still able to do so, they would still be attemping to sell their crap for way above cost to the expense of Neo fans outside the circus tent of forums like these, Trieu's and some others.

And the best part is, their supposed legitimacy was so shortlived that the only thing they can claim is bragging rights to a finite period of time when they had already trashed their reputation anyway.

Who gives a shit anymore. Their bullshit is over. They try anything out of sorts and SNK-P yanks the leash around their respective nuts and they heel like the mindful pets that they have now become.

Oddly enough i find myself ignoring NGF's bullshit just this once. Well to be frank guys I really don't care anymore seeing as it's like the same garbage being spewed all the time.

However there is one thing I am happy about.















Gato............














God dammit of all the characters to put in they had to give him a slot. I'm seriously interested in this game now.

You are right..to rationalize anything at this point is meaningless.
I would never concede anything to those pack of FOOLS so if you've held your breath chances are you're not reading this...
Their inserts make good artwork to scan from for other projects and their carts are fabulous SAC material.. HOW IRONIC.
NGF will forever be a POS and their reign of treachery is no more!
I LOVE IT!!!

Oh and OmegaSaber, point taken... I just found that "ancient" thing weird... is it really valid to say "you're ancient" in this case? Does it mean "you're late" or something like that?

That list is a joke. For that matter, why not just include Matrimelee, ROTD, SvC, MS5, SS5 . . . I mean really, get the facts straight before you post a press release. And all the non-SNK properties? Really embarassing.

Regardless, their "repackaged" versions are trash to 99.9% of the community, and always will be. No press release or approval will ever change that. They could have been a respected force in this hobby, but their scams, ripoffs, poor quality products, and sorry attitudes made them into what they are today . . . two ridiculous clowns always struggling for respect, but never getting it. And at this point, they never will. :oh_no:

It was meaningless years ago. I seriously feel that from this point out anything discussed about Di-Yawn Fakeazz would be rehashing the same shit over & over.

Whatever rights to whatever properties they have are meaningless because they already showed everyone their true intentions years ago.

To 'Ruin' this hobby.

You should let it go also Bryce. Those two assholes are just not worth the effort anymore.

Then Terry's hobby, video games. WTF? Isn't his hobby getting revenge from Geese? I mean, Bao's hobby was video games (and for that dork it fit perfectly) but it doesn't seem right for Terry (then again I think it's in one of the FF movies he was playing a candy cab... aaw shoot OK forget this rant)

And the official names, I mean wouldn't they be William Kane, Terrance Bogard and Joseph Higashi? J/W.

Okay, this is just a slightly better translated version of the main story (at least it's more readable than Babelfish):

It is made a largest-in-the-world scale, and is a grapple convention of the highest level.
"King OBU Fighters"

RUGARU fell on the stage, OROCHI was stopped, and NESUTSU also collapsed.

Many dramas currently unfolded.
But, it was covered by a certain thick curtain at any times, and they did not touch popular eyes.

King OBU Fighters holding was also determined this year, such connection being included.
He is existence of a mystery again, and the sponsor of a convention receives the opacity, and various guesses are confused and he flies in various places.

However, the grapple houses of the long record of active service which announces participation one after another in spite of it
When it confirmed that there were many notable participants, each prudent media also began to take up KOF all at once till then.

Bordering on the announcement of the new rule now introduced from a convention "a multi-shift", i.e., free shift operations, it develops even into a social phenomenon and monopolizes the subject in the world.
Involving this rule of which the tactics of a team unit are simultaneously required as speedy game deployment, the newspaper and the magazine constructed the special feature article like every week, and the days on which sudden critics pound a desk and use a fervent speech continued by TV.

"A strong absurd party is in the world still more."
??, a GURIFON mask, DEYUORON, SHIEN U.
...., the ash Crimson.
This very KOF noise of their name having come to be gradually known through the network was an opportunity.
Do they get used to the nova which creates ups and downs to KOF?
Or ....

Preparation progresses steadily in every day of frenzy.
The spectators who the stage of a local competition is determined, and a schedule is ready, and move to the ground of the first game one after another
That the atmosphere of a street fight should be directed, although the hall was set up in the city, the pattern of a game will be broadcast live on a huge screen and the stadium of tens of thousands of people accommodation scale is secured during a period in a city here and there.


December, 2003.

It visited at the time.
The curtain of the stage also goes up this year.

And the Outlaw Team story:

"HEIHEIHEI! A punk [ move / aside ]. that is my seat -- ぜ?"
" ...."
"-- SHIKATO . Mr. GISU and this kung fu guy -- I educate a few "
"There is no place yielded to a dog."
" .... ぜ which was not often able to be heard. It says once again and is everybody ?."
"It was said that room of a pet dog was a doghouse. Is it satisfaction now? "
"てめぇ ...."
"HYAHAHAHA, good ぜ兄ちゃん and others The sights are seen. It is おっぱじめな at a brisk pace! "

It was each opening words of the day when three persons made the face meet for the first time.
Staff usage of the British graduate, Billy Kern.
An illegal broker, Ryuji Yamazaki.
And the man of the long hair clothed in the Chinese martial art arrival carried out calmly.
"-- surely -- てめぇ and 牙刀 -- it said -- よな The way of having lived long depending on which it kicks and ゃ and a mouth are effective is learned."
" ...."
The man of mastering the Chinese martial art of 剛 systems including 8 極拳 was still young, and had something with which the air of the physique carried out strongly and the circumference is covered. As for が, then praiseworthy man who fears, there is not one person in this large room, either.
Only one person of the person who can assemble the them in a hall is in this town.
GISU Howard.
It is made the Howard connection's chief and is the expert of an old martial art. And it is the illegal ruler who has huge power in back society.
It is "although it does not say "Take a hand and dance a dear dance" ...."
Sat deeply, GISU which smothered the cigar disgustingly rotated leather-covered ISU 180 degrees, and turned the back to all the members.
carrying out good FURI of relations to a slight degree in front of "client -- ?"
A whole view of his town and a south town can be commanded from the highest story of the skyscraper which overlooks the circumference.
If it is "client. Does he think that this I was employed?"
牙刀 rose.
"It does not go down. Interest does not have me in a grapple convention etc. I am allowed to return."
Billy -- the shoulder -- ducking -- " -- although it was made to like, good さ" was murmured small, and GISU was said, with the back turned
"-- this town .... various human beings come to a south town -- "
牙刀 disregarded the language of GISU and turned the leg to the door.
the Japanese who is looking for ", for example, a missing elder brother, -- a girl -- "
The leg of 牙刀 stopped.
"Therefore, it is what. It is not related to me."
"It is so. But, otherwise, man comes many to this town. There is not no report that the Chinese martial art usage just like you was required in it."
The Howard connection has stored all the information on a south town in his hands. That consents also to 牙刀 repeatedly.
"YATSU is in this town. It is what purpose.... It is " to KOF by no means.
"It is not understood. But, it is impossible to look for the man lost into millions of human beings by one you person. Isn't it an easy talk? You wins the victory in a convention. I fulfill the purpose of you. The loan is nothing."
" .... FUN. It will be good. The talk," which may get
"KETSU -- being interesting -- it obtains and is a guy Mr. GISU and I are although it will think that the way which also constructed the dog is MASHI if it participates with these."
"GYAHAHAHA and てめぇ are pet dogs anyway -- since It will get along well with dogs! "
"Yamasaki てめぇ ...."
"ぜ from which a dog barks at a visitor and this たぁ and upbringing do not serve as おっ. Mr. なぁ GISU -- ?"
"A thin 汚ぇ snake guy Is it quiet? _ぁ?!"
"It is [ whether it gives up and ] Billy."
Billy is also a too hot-blooded direction, and if Yamasaki is reached, seeing blood has the refracted moral structure of pleasure above all. Probably, desperate murder 合い was begun before 5 second had passed, if the existence of GISU was not in this place.
" .... I have you participate in だ and this KOF by three of you anyhow. Fully giving remuneration, required information raises and investigates an organization. This is business. Although it is also regarded as their being extraordinary good conditions"
Yamasaki should set insanity adrift on expression -- with a grin -- と -- it is continuing laughing
牙刀 does not remove a look from GISU, while it has been expressionless.
Although Billy made dissatisfaction and displeasure open, the stick of boast which was being now established as the loyalty to GISU exceeded it was also stored at hand, and was made gentle.
"It will be splendid if unanimous."
GISU turned ISU again and turned the face to the member of the "team" just formed.
"Although you etc. is not expected in teamwork etc., I have a championship carried out by KOF. It will be troubled if I have remuneration expected by the other result."
"Other result ?"
Neither irony nor a joke is mixed with the tone. There was confidence not swinging in 牙刀. The self-confidence to itself's power made it say.
"A result is one if I participate at all. The victory is won."
"It is splendid."
"Gradually generous Mr. GISU. my wish -- hear it -- does it obtain? "
" .... It is troublesome if a performance fee can riot in how and office again. Say."
"It is blood."
" .... Blood, だ and ?"
俺ぁ血 makes noise recently [ "] and it is method ねぇん .... a game -- about ちっ -- " -- doing -- passing -- or [" ちまう ] -- being found -- ねぇ -- the は through which it does not pass -- ぜぇ" it asks well
Light with the cold eye of GISU was worn. が and it are also momentary things.
"Make it like. It is in the range which can be processed in the "accident"."
"HIHYAHAHAHAHA!! It is and is がてぇぜ! It is ってもん out of which a motivation also comes now."
"The talk ends with it. Then, it will be good although a rest is taken at most till convention that day."

Only GISU and Billy were left behind to inside when Yamasaki carried out the room to 牙刀 behind.
"Although it is the thing of Mr. GISU and this convention ...."
"There is what will not be become if it does not tell Billy and you, although it is that."
"はっ"
"Naturally supervising action of Yamasaki should not let a man called that 牙刀 out of sight but, either. If there is human being in contact with especially a fellow, report."
"It has consented. Mr. GISU, this KOF, and a sponsor are by the way, ? which is really whom."
" ...."
GISU did not answer but turned the back of leather-covered ISU again.
After silence, it bowed and Billy also left a room.

It will be convention that day that three persons of a team meet together again.

He was revealed to be a ghost at the end of RB2. Since the timelines of KOF, FF and AOF don't match up at all, you could either consider all of the KOFs as occuring before RBFF (doesn't make sense), or consider KOF as existing outside normal SNK continuity (like the Capcom vs. games don't take place in Street Fighter continuity). Or Geese really is immortal, thanks to those scrolls.

I love the stories of the SNK games, but I stopped worrying about trying to fit them all together with KOF since '95 (took me a year to realize the AOF team should be a decade older. I'm slow). All I know is I enjoy the hell out of the games -- that's enough.
