What a great tournament. InfernoKong's Dino and Cristina's Angel were the standouts for me.

More information about the new Saudi Girl:
Text translated from the new character draft by her creator
Najd (Character Name)
Although we live in the 21 century with all advancements in our world, the stories of geniuses are still haunting us.
We see our 21 years old university girl got a special training since her childhood along with another girls same age as her in order to get "Halek" Abaya (Abaya is a full-length, sleeveless outer garment worn by some Muslim women), Halek is a stubborn genie that isn't easy to control and Najd was the most deserving one to wear "Halek" Abaya.
Najd is calm most of the time, cause controlling Halek requires a lot of concentration and if she loses control of it, it will harm her and her surroundings.
She's a student at morning and a justice guardian at night duet to her night stealth abilities.
We find a saudi girl dressed in a black gulf dress trimmed with silver engravings. She looks strange as she has a special power, where her dress is haunted by a genie named Halek -as in extremely black-. Halek can materialize and take shape through the cloak and then disappear.
She wears a pair of modern leather gloves and boots for protection. The boots are long so that her legs are covered when the dress is lifting during combat.
She wears a hood(I think) on her head, but during powerful attacks or intense combat it temporarily falls off. In addition to this, she wears gold accessories with blue sapphires for appearances.
The dress should be loose for freedom of movement and her limbs are usually covered by the cloak during crouching and are shown during movement.
After much though I decided to shy away from the stereotypical saudi design in the sword wielding black haired saudi man* and popular designs for saudi women and decided to design the character of a modern saudi woman in an inventive way to reflect the current evolution the kingdom is currently experience with the intent to conserve the traditions of the past and the islamic identity.
Video statements from the SNK team
The thing I was most surprised with was the style and quality of the submissions. Personally I have a very limited understanding of Saudi Arabia, but I felt a resemblance in style and character design to the Japanese style. We received a lot of great submissions and we enjoyed seeing them all.
Stay tuned for our upcoming projects, which will definitely meet your expectations. The thing I personally liked most was the design for Fahd(loosely translated to panther or leopard or some other wildcat), having this hybrid of a mysterious and strange kid with a monkey caught my attention
For this occasion I would like to offer my greatest thanks to the Saudis character drawing contest in which a lot of Saudis came forward and so I would like to offer my thanks again. From the characters that were submitted, the femme fetal Najd(I think this is an arabic name) took first place. The uniqueness of this character couldn't have come from us Japanese, and we believe that the likes of this character would be the reasons for SNK's success in Saudia Arabia and the middle east.

This is nice and all. But have they mentioned anything about a balance update? I care more about that than 1 character(who probably wont see much play) + 1 stage.

Where does one go for matches? Can they be had consistently? Am I mostly looking for player matches, no ranked matches?
Waiting for my system to be delivered but I want to be on in a week. In the U.S.

Looking forward to the MANGA, not MANHWA. This is a Japanese FG series it shouldn't have taken this long. KOF is basically a glorified tournament arc, the most basic shonen manga arc that people love.
