wait a fucking a minute!!! WHAT!?
Won't raise my hopes yet, could be some collaboration or something.
SNK doesn't overdo it with the 'ink', so its not plagiarism, otherwise every single anime out there with saucer eyed characters are plagiarism to each other.
the new SS should get a number though, sequel number sell more than reboot numbers or subtitles (as proven by how much more RE4 sold compared to Code Veronica, the proper 4th RE.)
sequel numbers have more marketing strength.
also they should bring back overkills from SSV Special and not hold back with the violence, blood, gore and finishers. cutting people in half diagonally and vertically is a must too.
and like SSV Special, it should be pretty easy to trigger a slash finisher (SS1-4 were often too strict in requirements to trigger a finisher
and I hate SS4's direction command finishers. it overcomplicates things.).
