SNK Playmore taken over by Chinese company?...
Murikov
You may already have read some of the scuttlebutt about a possible Chinese takeover of SNK Playmore.

Well, it seems that recently it eventually happened. Apparently one of Leyou's commercial branches aquired over 80% of SNK Playmore's shares, making the Chinese joint-venture de facto the new owner of SNK Playmore.

According to the CEO of Dongfang Xinghui, the said subsidiary of the joint-venture, the new owners plan to milk SNKP's known IPs by producing TV shows, games, movies or comics.

What do you guys think about this shady deal..?

You get the feeling when this happens they just want the IP's, character designs etc to make some money. Without caring too much about quality. But who knows?

All I really care about is Neo Geo. I just want SNK to make a new Neo Geo game or even to make a Neo Geo 2 Joe

Wish we could get an interview from Eikichi Kawasaki. He seemed so passionate about the company all this time.

I'm taking a wait and see approach.

As long as we keep getting games like Beast Busters featuring KOF, I'm OK with this. You guys with phones should give this a try, I found it enjoyable and addicting.

Its really sad news, I honestly don't know what to expect now... I'm not really expecting a grand revival or anything of the sort, but it would be a pleasant surprise.

Seems the video game industry in Japan has been suffering lately.
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

it's alright, i was going to do a review of them but the menu's were so bad that the games don't stand a chance same with metal slug defense , both uninstalled i will be doing reviews on the premium paid apps instead bought a few now.

As with the Snk saga they spent a lot of cash to buy the ip rights so lets just hope they want there investment back with profit and produce quality snk products in keeping with the whole snk vibe/feeling
