Interview is with Oda and is in Japanese. Hopefully The Professor can translate it.

That officially puts the kibosh on that "proto" screen with Mr. Karate being legit.

Its pretty awesome that Oda was able to release this, and you definitely get a feel that with him and his team there, its a bit like the old SNK again. You can tell they really give a shit and care about the history of the company and their work there.

This is awesome. Also waiting for the translation of the interview. Heartwarming to see that someone actually cares about his company's history.

The palette swaps were kept to a minimum for once.

Looks kind of awesome.

He doesn't mention much of it, just a mention of the sequel to Garou. The text under the picture of the characters says that production was about halfway complete and the new characters are along the bottom along with the boss character Cain on the left.
 
Brilliant
Edit: tho a little bland. There's nothing really here. The only character design that looks new and excellent is the last one at the bottom on the right (he is new right?).

But it is heartwarming to get info on this mythic creature after so long. Personally I find it surprising and yet classic gaming being so in vogue these days maybe I shouldn't

Thanks bro! I love this kind of stuff :buttrock:

2 of the 6 new characters kinda remind me of Kim Kaphwan's sons. They dress similarly and all (same shoes, etc...).

Srsly, I play a ColecoVision all the time. I'm not a graphix whore.

I feel the same way, maybe my eyes are getting worse but it didn't look like anything all that impressive.

Second to the last guy on the bottom row reminds me of Brian Hawk from Hajime no Ippo.

Xacrow should put his money where his mouth is and show his "copy"

Amazing to finally see something of the follow up to one of my all time favourite games. Not that it will ever happen, but I can't think of anything I'd rather see completed and released. Tie this in with the thread elsewhere on the forum fantasising of a return to SNK home cart releases and you'd have a dream come true scenario.

Awesome! Knowing MOTW 2 was a real game in development and never finished makes me sad.

BBLLOOOO__HHAARRDDDDDD!!!!,
is there any chance of this being faked?. because this is not what i was expecting motw 2 sprites to look like. wasn't motw 2 supposed to have completely different characters from the first game, and have a older, wiser rock howard?. i remember rumours about motw 2 being far fetched as how terry wasn't even going to be in the game, and how rock was going to take his place as the main character. to me this just looks like a chart of all the characters that made it to the first game, and the ones at the bottom are the ones that were rejected. but yeah, if this is legit, i want to know more about the kick boxer in orange. one thing that was missing in motw was a kick boxer.

It's not faked as the image was provided by Oda. How far they were into development and the odds that these sprites were final is another matter.

Very cool, this interview could become the best ad for 14 yet, there's so much love & dedication... and that "capoeira dancer" chara is a great concept idea, always liked Salgueiro's moves.

I can see where you are coming from as its quite surprising all the characters made it part 2, especially the 2 boss ones which doesnt make too much sense but it is what it is.
