Famed Japanese website 4gamer.net has interviewed Yasuyuki Oda about what to expect from SNK in 2018. His answer will make SNK fans very excited.
It'll probably be another retro SNK console which is pointless because SNK puts their older games on every console, refrigerator, stove and toaster out there. We need a new KoF with Guilty type graphics! Start work on a new Metal Slug or Ikari Warriors hand drawn style!
The games need to be in 3D so that they can actually do a lot more things faster. Sprite drawing takes to much time.
But sprite drawn is so much in style with the Slug series and looks absolutely gorgeous. Maybe make the Ikari games 3D but I would want them to keep Metal Slug sprite based.
You do realize the Guilty Gear games are now 3D models and not sprite work, right?
SNK did not release the Neo Geo X, they just licensed the IP to Tommo, which did a poor job on the product (dull muted handheld screen quality, blurry dull HDMI output quality). I'd love to see a mini retro console built around the classic Neo Geo games, and designed at the quality level of the SNES Classic Edition, including the solid HDMI output quality found in that mini console.
Interesting, did not know that. A retro console might be cool for collectors but in all honesty with SNK releasing most of their games for consoles anyways I see no reason for them to do it.
After reading the article they mean a new console game and a new mobile game, not a new console. The article's headline was just worded poorly.
Yup, I did not read the actual article either (shame on me). I hope the rumors of a new NeoGeo Battle Coliseum is true and I hope that a new SNK vs Capcom Chaos will happen since they need another stab at that.
Another NBC could be good.
We need capcom vs SNK 3 Online
metal slug Metal Slug METAL SLUG METALSLUG M E T A L S L U G we need a new METAL SLUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUG!!!!!!!!!!! !
Give us a new legit Samurai Showdown game SNK!
Agreed! And preferably not in 3D.
Would love that, I would also love to see a western release of a sequel to the underrated Samurai Showdown RPG.
I’ll support you. What I wish is you’d do a damn arcade compilation disc.
New sprite based Metal Slug please, just played Metal Slug X again yesterday and those games are timeless.
