Excuse my random replies…
Regarding King’s ability:
She tied with Robert (who is always portrayed equal to Ryo) in 2000. There’s even an official art which depicted that event.
The original characters in this series are supposed to belong to Marvelous Entertainment.
Well, the storyline look like it’s an alternate continuity anyway. Cause it took place after Orochi Saga but NESTS seemed not to exist. Furthermore all characters aged 1 year in KOFEX2 while they still have remained the same ages in the main series (ie, Terry was 25 in EX2).
The interesting thing is, KOFEX2 story was supervised by Ureshino.
I think i read somewhere that Goenitz’s given name was came from a novel by Ureshino.
Just to add, in Metal Slug series (which are set in the future) he was born in 1992.
