'The latest release of The King of Fighter series, XIII was released in 2010 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.'.

Er, no it wasn't.

Woah, who disagreed? There's no opinion to disagree with, it is a FACT lol, KOF XIII has yet to be released on consoles in Japan and the US (I'm pretty sure Atlus is releasing pretty close to the Japanese release)

Guess they meant XII, although XIII has been announced.
Must've been confused with Final Fantasy XIII, lol. I know I called the latest KoF thirteen a few times by accident.

SNK, too bad after they went bankrupt they were never able to come back on their feet.

Their golden age was around the period they released Metal Slug series, Last Blade and Garou Mark of the Wolves. Too bad the Neo-Geo was on its death bed during that time and those excellent games did not sell as they should.

SNK today is a restructured company bought by a Korean investment firm. As far as I could tell, they are not as great as they used to be and have been surviving on selling KOF.

Well I'm not a huge SNK games, I do enjoy their games and stuff, but I didn't know much about the details of the bankruptcy either. What surprised me is that they were bought by a Korean investment firm... and reconstructed too...

it could have been worse indeed . But given how many former snk member went over dimps , capcom and Arc , you gotta wonder if the franchise wouldnt be in better hand with any of the three holding the rights .

I have to admit i'm a die hard KOF fan. I would love to see that series get the recognition it deserves and i know it gets some but i'm talking about Evo big tourny like attention.

SNK has so many great IP's just lying around. They need a whole new upper management team and some cash to get going and become a factor in this day and age of video games.
