    icon16.gif SNK Playmore interview - Part 1

    Get an inside look at current day SNK Playmore with Yoshihito Koyama, SNK's most veteran employee (on board since '91). This preliminary thread was opened to gather ideas from the community for specific questions for this event and this polished article is the culmination of those efforts.

    Special thanks go to Massimiliano Macri of Italy (Neo-Geo.com forum member massimiliano) who conducted this comprehensive interview with SNKP at their Japan headquarters on December 26th, 2008.

    1. Awesome article! Great photos as well. I'm glad to hear that they plan to continue supporting the arcade market with new games.

    2. Also looking forward to part two.

    3. What's up Shawn? Haven't seen you post in ages.

    I totally agree that those photos were a real treat. I always get a kick out of seeing pics of the NeoGeo SNK HQ building (which is perhaps the ultimate NeoGeo heirloom right?!). It’s also refreshing to see SNKP staying strong and busy with their many ventures.

    You know, I've said this before and I'll say it again: Imagine if we could pool our resources together to have SNKP finish Last Blade 3, Magician Lord 2, or Mark of the Wolves 2 but specifically for the NeoGeo. Yet such a project may not be viable without a widescale arcade release though. *ponders* Who knows, perhaps we’ll see these titles revised in the future as official downloads for the PC or on some other platform. As long as SNKP still thrives then anything is possible.

    @ Ghost-Dog: Glad to see people staying active while the place has been on auto-pilot. I must admit, we are quite fortunate to have such top notch moderators keeping things in order after all these years, though we do possess a generally mature member base from a gaming perspective.

    @ TonK: I received your email and will make a post about your idea in the mod forum. Thanks for your other helpful suggestions as well.

    Thank you guys for the article. The pictures and the mention of a brand new overhaul on Metal Slug were great. I do hope they get around to Last Blade 3 as well.

    Hi!

    first of all thanks to Shawn, FTL and everybody on neo-geo.com, I tried my best and I'm really happy we did it and we are now enjoying an official document made just for the forum!
    I think this board deserve it.

    As time passed waiting for the approval, I would say once again that I sent them many questions before taking the interview, and they approved only the ones you find in the article (plus KOFXII-ptII related ones).
    This means that unfortunately some straight-question, specially about old neo-stuff (i.e. Kizuna production runs), needs some mail-chit-chat to be "unofficially" answered...but a contact is made so maybe in the future ...who knows.

    Anyway, part II is now waiting the all green from PR dept., so I'll keep in touch with them often until we made it too.


    P.s.
    Btw I apologize for the pictures size, but I'll post here higher resolution ones asap (^_^!)

    By the way, where is Adam Laatz based out of? Does he work in the Esaka office? (and does he have a Neo-Geo.com account?!)

    I never would have imagined they'd actually have a foreigner working for them in Japan.

    Too bad they didn't have an on-staff native-English speaker in the late 90's - they wouldn't have let Dion and Chris rape their IP's back then.

    Nice interview! I can't believe I sold you that rotation coil over at AO, I just didn't click that it was you. (I think) - as soon as I saw the name at the end of the interview I thought to myself, hey hangon I sent something to that guy recently.
