SNK has released a rather hype King of Fighters XV animated short, drumming up some excitement ahead of the game's 17th February release date on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. The animation features a number of characters from the series, all of whom look lovely in their well-drawn 2D forms. To be clear, that's us knocking the game's 3D models!
The short's from Masami Obari, by the way — a renowned animator, designer, and director who's worked on all kinds of anime projects over the years. His portfolio includes the somewhat relevant Fatal Fury movie from 1994.
Anyway, pretty cool. Are you looking forward to King of Fighters XV? Enter max mode in the comments section below.
So looking forward to this game. It will be the main game I play on PS4 for awhile. I plan on putting in the work to improve my game and do some online matches.
No, I have no interest in playing the game.
Yes, I watched the trailer for Mai.
@Olmaz According to Sakurai you are not a good boy or girl
@Texan_Survivor are you serious? What story in a KoF game? 🤣 It's just, yeah, there's a tournament, everyone comes for fighting...
That’s well done, calling back to the Fatal Fury anime. Many years ago that sat on my shelf along with VHS copies of Bubblegum Crisis, You’re Under Arrest, and the like. Good times.
Early 2000s called, they want the trailer back.
And this joke too.
I actually kind of wish SNK would have kept using and updating the HD Sprites from XII and XIII.
I mean I know why they didn’t. They were stupidly time consuming to make, which is why both those games had extremely small rosters compared to most KOF titles.
But man were they beautiful. Mai’s HD sprite was a work of true art.
@Royalblues same here. KoF 15, GT7 and SiFu are right now most interesting to me. I'm also interested in Switch Sports.
@Texan_Survivor I'm sorry bro. Yeah, I know there is a bit of story through these games. But I mean, it's not that of a great deal. I buy this game because of its iconic fighters, fighting system, soundtrack and design.
@Nintendo4Sonic KOF has always been fully story driven. Check out the comics if you can they show the official stories. The Orochi saga is one of the best fighting arcs around.
@TheRedComet Yea when I saw 12&13 I kept hoping that was the direction they would go in but you are right no way that was sustainable unless they expanded their employee base. The crunch times musta sucked hard.
@z0d15g0d ok, thanks for the advice
@TheRedComet Yeah, that art was beautiful but we'd have been stuck with small rosters or a bankrupt SNK (again) if they had kept it up. Also, I think the 3D models probably allow them to try new things and mess around with new moves and new looks etc without spending years on the animation only to scrap it.
Hi there fellow gamers.
Obari san returning for a short, but sweet animation is great to see. You can definitely see is style when Terry shows up.
Now, can we please get a FULL Animated movie of KOFXV?
Cause that would be totally awesome.
And just like @Texan_Survivor said, can´t wait to see were SNK is going with the story this time.
Very curious to know who is the Final Boss and is or her importance.
Just a few more days to a buch of games. Going be very busy.
Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming to us all
