SNK Playmore had previously announced the next KOF and Samurai Shodown games were going to be 3D graphics with 2D gameplay.

Just check at the game models shown today:

If Alice is going to be playable, I think it's safe to say this would be more or less a "Maximum Impact 3".

What are your feelings about this?

    That better be PREDIKTAHBOL TWO EZ Geese Howard on the right.
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.

    These rumors have been floating around for a year. We're officially getting a new KoF?

    And if the man on the left side of Haomaru is suposed to be Terry then L.O.L.

    I think that's Nakoruru?
    Also what a waste.
    the traced 3D in KoF XII/XIII looked very good

    i bet tecmo is pissed that nak looks like an exact replica of hitomi from doa. terry and geese look like the same guy but in two different moods. as long as it isn't intended to replace their normal 2D series then it's no big deal i guess. unimpressive designs in this pic either way.

    It's supposed the next game will return to 2D gameplay...
    It's a pachinko game.

    No, it is not. They'll be two new fighting games (KOF and Samurai Shodown), 3D graphics, 2D gameplay. They announced they were hiring programmers and graphic designers for that like 4 months ago.

    Gotta say, I'm not happy about this. I like what ASW has done with Xrd, where the models look 2D. I'd be ok with any 2D fighter copying that style. Judging from the pic in the OP, that isn't what is happening.

    You gotta contempt with Xuan Dou Zhi Wang. That's basically a classic KOF game, at least in spirit, but with a good upgrade in the visual style :P

    Why are people complaining about renders for a pachislot game that will never leave Japan?

    I mean, you wanna see awful, look no further than this
    Still better than the ones in the new announcement D:

    I gotta disagree. The animation quality in XDZ Wang looks worse than KOFXIII to me. In fact, I think KOFXIII is a pretty damn good looking game. If they had that same art style, but with the 3D cinematics of Xrd, I'd be so happy.

    Girl on the right is who exactly? Only blonde girl that immediately comes to mind in KoF is Blue Mary, but that doesn't look like Mary to me.

    EDIT: I'm an idiot, didn't see the Fatal Fury text on her cap. Has to be Blue Mary.

    Judging by her hat, shes B Jenet from Fatal Fury Mark of The Wolves.

    Could be either of them I suppose, as they both got their start in the Fatal Fury universe.

    Okay, the website you linked doesn't say anything about what your pic shows except for that line of text in the pic itself, which google cannot translate, of course. Anybody speak Japanese?

    EDIT: Nevermind, if you click on the pic below that just show Terry mad then it gives you more info. Running Wild is right, this looks like like a pachislot game.

    I think that's just a page showing job vacancies at SNKP.

    Have people forgotten the past few years where we've had 2D games with 3D graphics that played just like 2D games (and not Maximum Impact)?
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Everyone (should) be mindful that if there isn't a new generation after my generation, the FGC (fighting game community) will basically become extinct, so it's important to think about the future.

    I'm glad they're making a new KoF, i'm glad they are going for 3D, i'm not glad about these models. They look very very generic. Looks like a cheap "knockoff" made by amateurish 3D modellers.

    I don't care unless Rock and Momoko are in it.
    Would also be nice to see Alfred and Rick from RB2 as well as some of the exclusives from the MI series.
    If the next game is going to be a dream match then I want to see more underused characters.

    The models look decent (except Terry but that's because he looks nothing like he's supposed to). SF4's models are nothing special... neither is GGXrd.

    Whatever rendering style they're using better change it because those renders look like shit... this is why SF4 and GGXrd looks so much better.
    - The developers are working very hard about how they will represent the 2D image in 3D !!

    I hope this means they'll use something closer to a toon shader for the actual games because this is unacceptable.

    - The combos will be easier than the system in XIII to make the game more friendly to players. They are giving consideration to makeing the game's combo more like 98.

    Wow, that's awesome. Definitely will improve the overall gameplay and pace if the next KoF plays more like 98 in terms of the combo system.

    Doesn't look good. Most 3d doesn't compared to 2d, but even amongst 3d these early screenshots are not impressive.

    Companies can work on more than 1 game at once. Maybe SNK is working on both a Pachislot and Fighting Game.

    I liked EX moves and the Drive Cancel system. If you put this but leave the HyperDrive MAX mode, things could be very cool.

    Jeez, would love a new ss, something that aint using that same fucking engine as ss4 for once.
    Those models do look kinda crappy though, kinda maximum impactish standard, nakoruru looks awful, like a mannequin.

    But shit once you say the return of characters i can forget about all that shit and start wondering who will be making a comeback.
    I know i would like to see more non kof representation, purely because (i know times have changed) kof was ment to a coming together of series a festival of fighting.

    But as it is now it's own beast with the odd token old boy thrown in for good measure, i think because now you dont have any more aof or ff, kizuna whatever i think it's even more important to keep bring back characters from old games, i dont wanna ever not see the likes of franco bash, jubei, and so on ever again especially ones that were fun characters ( i know this is subjective)

    Shit i'd even take the crap ones over some of the current ones we have now, shit like temjin or john crawly, axl hawk! over the likes of maxima, K, and pretty much 90% of anything that came during or after nests.

    with SNK's contribution to Tencent's XDZW, I imagine they'll be using something very similar to its sprites. I hope they go for something more advanced :s

    making stuff more like 98 is great. I do love meter management in XIII though, EX moves are great. I just get annoyed having to do some long input for HD combos.

    Isn't this about SNK using 3D models for 2 gameplay.

    Also Drive Cancels was a really interesting mechanic, would like to see them keep that and remove HD mode.

    MIRA was actually a legit game. The others were pretty bad though.
