But at least 2001 was a lot more fun to play than '99 or 2000.

Plus, it's not like Ash hasn't been a staple this entire time. Who is a more Eolith era character than Ash? So I don't buy the thinking SNK has been avoiding them. I think people just like to read conspiracy into coincidence.


Remember when they hinted at Kensou being the next main character after Nests? And the whole world said, no thanks.

About Duck, it's true it doesn't make sense, but I'd welcome him under any circumstances.
At the very least they could have just followed through with the whole Dragon Power story with Lin and all that instead of dumping it. Would have made him more interesting than just "legacy character who eats buns and fanbois over Athena every game".

I'm all for bringing Duck back, but if they really want to "shatter expectations" they should made a FF1 team or something. Him, Richard Meyer, Michael Max, or Hwa Jai. Or just a "characters from Fatal Fury you haven't seen in forever" team with any one of Xiangfei, Franco Bash, Alfred, etc.

Totally on board to see Franco Bash again.
I really hope he makes the upcoming Fatal Fury game.

Excited to play Sam Sho characters in a KOF. I wonder if they'll be more combo-oriented like KOF usually is, or more tactical with heavy damage moves with greater margin of error, and shorter combos.

Trailer makes it look more like the former.

Crossplay was going to come in 2023. Will they announce that? When that arrives I will boot this game back up and maybe splurge on the DLC.

That just "delayed", for Sie Kensou, Chin Gentsai, Rin, Long and the whole Hizoku thing, hinted in 2001 with Sai, Ran and Chitto, was basically a "Chinese thing", right? Well, same is the green-haired, half-possessed new starring Shun'ei and his team and his own backstory, isn't it? :-)
