The King Of Fighters XV Announcement Teaser
Well damn. Not even a single photo of the game! Still glad it's in development.
Launch title for the Neo Geo 2?
they should replace Chin with Momoko again.
I dunno, neo geo 2 sounds risky. remember the Neo Geo Pocket Color? that sold so bad they had the close their USA headquarters.
the majority of their neogeo games are already on PS4/etc. I say they would profit more being 3rd party instead of competing with a new console.
plus with tariffs going on, less people would be inclined to invest in a new platform that isnt Sony/Nintendo or even Xbox for that matter.
I think a Neo Geo 2 only makes sense if they are going all in with it, meaning they would port and localize Samurai Shodown RPG, and really make consistently new and higher quality games that makes their platform a system seller with some really mind blowing must have games.
they have yet to produce any system seller games these days. their IPs are no longer exclusive like they were in the 16 bit days. things like KOF were so exclusive and rare to have at home, that it elevated NeoGeo's value and presence back then. but now, SNK classics are on generally all current platforms
millions stick to PS4/Switch. now owning a 2nd or 3rd platform with the expensive costs of consoles and games, is just tough. four competing consoles is tough.
and it would be insane keeping KOF XV exclusive to NeoGeo2.
it sounds like a careless investment on a new neogeo platform in today's market.
Wish they announced a new Fatal Fury instead with a kof sized roster.
But I’m always happy there is more KoF on the horizon
