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.

The silhouettes in that vid…are Blue Man Group in the next round of DLC?

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 was 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 plot", right? Well, same is the green-haired, half-possessed new starring Shun'ei, his team and their whole backstory, isn't it? :-)

Excited for Shingo, Kim, and even Sylvie. She's so batshit weird that I'm keen to see what they do with her.

Other two silhouettes look like Duo Lon and Athena. Maybe an alt version of her?

I was thinking more likely henko as the final shadow.
Didn't like sylvie but I liked najd and hoping they also expand on her personality (doubt it since she won't be part of a team).
With singular character releases that they might still add a guest character from a different company.

Najd was a cool character but she was stupid broken in XIV so hopefully they tune her a bit better in this one. Sylvie PP sucks my pp. The Kate Capshaw in Temple of Doom of KoF characters. Noisy, useless bitch.

Excited for Shingo though.

I heard the silhouettes were supposed to be Duo Lon and Hinako (sumo girl from 2000). Athena would be the better choice, though.
