SNK Playmore released a trailer for the newest installment to the King of Fighters series.
Sony's really serious about getting exclusive fighters on PS4
Just a pity it isnt Tekken.
It's the genre Sony has always lacked. Good they are taking fighting games more serious.
Uh ? Not a complain i just dont understand your post . I don't see how it's a genre in wich they were lacking . Ever since the ps1 ... even when other consoles had better ports and versions like the Saturn and DC , they always had everything in the realm of fighting games , everything but obvious consoles exclusives back then like Killer Instinct and Virtua Fighter ...
PS got all fighters, including all alpha sf, KOF, ex+, tobal, Tekken, fatal fury, dragon Ball, naruto, ... I think DOA 3 and 4 are the only 2 games PS never got. Even power stone was on PS
This isn't Sony getting serious, This is SNK's Chinese backers choosing exclusivity by choice.
This won't be a lifetime exclusive though
How do you know that?
Yup, buying exclusives left and right, particular multiplataform games.
Haven't most of the "multiplatform" turned exclusive games been playstation exclusives in the past?
@Rimeskeem Street Fighter and King of Fighters were always in all plataforms.
SF EX series have always remained PS exclusive, and KOF 2006 a PS2 only fighter, and FYI, the Tekken series have never hit another console until Tekken 6, and what's wrong with buying exclusivity, I'm sure Microsoft and Nintendo have done the same thing, don't you think?.
@Tito08 I dont remember a game beeing multiplatform for that many years and them going exclusive for Microsoft or Nintendo. Street Fighter Ex Plus Alpha 2 was so freking good, a pity SFEx 3 was crap, thats one game I hope it gets revived.
I really don't like the new artstyle. It looks like really bad 90s CG.
i was thinking that..
Bad 90's CG? It's just 3D. Maybe not cutting edge 3D visuals. It looks like ps2 era 3D. I don't know how you got bad 90's CG
It's not the 3D I have a problem with, it's the material shaders they've chosen to use, seemingly on everything. It gives it a very 'plastic' look, very much akin to early CGI.
I really miss the look of the Neo Geo's fighters.
I agree...it looks really bad. I am hoping this is just some trailer and not actual gameplay. Anyone remember KoF Maximum Impact?
I actually really enjoyed the Maximum Impact games. I wonder if this game will be along those lines.
A little disappointing that it isn't sprites.
A little? People I follow on Twitter who commented have resented the change. maximilian @maximilian_ Why does KOFIV look like a PS2 game? Kidding obviously, but only slightly. Woolie Madden @WoolieWoolz I mean, just. Ooof. I can't even feel upset. Just embarrassed for SNK, more than anything. Everyone just saw their balls on stream.
I'm not dissapointed it's not sprites , it was impossible to continue that way on an financial level . i'm more dismayed that they didnt even bother taking cues for all those fighters with a 2d artstyle and 3d models , especially like Guilty Gear Xrd . I know that gameplay is supposed to be the primary thing , but the good kof also had tons of aesthetical flair , and this doesnt . It really looks like one of those f2p chinese brawling games
To be fair it was suggested over a year ago that they would not be using sprites anymore.
Why you went 3D??? whyyyyyyy
Of course they were going to go 3d , even Arcsys went 3d . The issue is going with such a bland and mediocre style as opposed to all the other companies
Japanese companies are seriously neglecting the Xbox one. I mean, how hard would it be to port this over?
That looks pretty bad for a PS4 game.
