The King of Fighters XII (locked, use new one)

Nah that's okay... SF4 looks amazing.


Ignition just confirmed console versions. Not surprising, but still cool.

Yea, did you see the vid I posted in the news. Not exactly the best teaser trailer, they could have put some game footage in there. Ah well, least there's official confirmation it's coming. I just hope that it won't be a year until we see it here!

Failing that, if the Japanese PS3/360 version has no region lock, I will be picking up the import beyond a shadow of a doubt!

New characters:
Sie Kensou, Chin Gentsai and Goro Daimon. Man Kensou looks cool in his original Phyco Soldier costume. He looks like Jackie Chan now. I was hoping to see Kensou, he is one of my favorite characters. But i don't like Chin. Goro is ok i think. I'd like to see Yamazaki, Blue Mary, Billy Kane, K' Dash, Joe ... isntead of Chin.

See pictures at
Yes, Chin is a really WTF choice... did anyone think he was that popular? Oh well... guess we have the classic Psycho Soldier team reunited. XD

However, Psycho Soldier Kensou is BADASS, and I approve. Daimon was expected, so I have no opinion on him one way or the either.

Can't say I'm super-excited just yet, but Kensou is awesome, so that's something in its favor. K' and Mai for the remaining two slots, who's with me?
"Well, that's that! The exit's that way!"
And Chin even looks more stupid. Thumbs Down

Ack! Why Chin and Daimon!? Why not Yamazaki !?:(

I say Kula Diamond, and Whip for the remaining slots! Grin
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

You know I will second that Headbang
If there are 3 slots left, Mai, Kula and Yama I say! Annoyed

Never liked Chin... well, I like him in the sense that he's kind of a homage to Jackie Chans master in Drunken Master, but I never enjoyed playing as him at all. Goro I don't mind but never use, and I like Kensou and the Psycho Soldier outfit... very cool. Still can't believe Mai is not yet announced, but I guess if she IS in it, then they are trying to get fanboys excited and worked up over inevitable HD BEWBZ! LOL


ps thanks for the links Zak, credited you in the news Smile

Yeah, they've definitely got me a little worried that Mai won't be in it. Not so worried that I'm not excited about the game though.
Kula is high on my list too but no one tops Blue Mary at this point. It will be the first time she misses out on a KOF since her introduction 97 if she misses out on this cut; not even mainstays like Mai, Robert or Leona (aka the crew who jumped XI) can say that. She's been my main (along with Ryo) in every KOF outing for the past ten years. In short, something will be seriously lacking if the main reversal damsel of the series girl is dropped at this point. KOF really needs her special brand of being a great all rounder even without fire, ice or ki based attacks.

Daimon I can get, even if Kyo and Beni are already in and most teams so far look like they come in pairs rather than threes. But Chin? Odd choice. He wasn't in 2003 or XI after all so I thought they were done with him (kinda like Choi the little bastard, I hope Malin fills his spot for all eternity now mwoahahaha) or something. Why not Momoko (she deserves another outing!) or even Bao at that?

Asuka does not wait until after school, she will kick your ass right now!
I just realized that Kensou isn't the only one who gets his classic look back, Athene does too!
Its the same blackish school uniform and hairstyle that was in Psycho soldier

Y'know, I just realized something. Elizabeth has been confirmed a long time ago, and K`s appearance is inevitable, that means.... One slot left!!:(

Please, PLEASE make it Whip, Malin, or Kula for the remaing slot!! Coolest (pun absolutely intended) KOF chicks EVAR!
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

The alleged last three are confirmed to be Duo Lon, Clark, and Joe. While I can't say I'm thrilled for Clark, I do like Duo and Joe's a pleasant surprise!

However... there are only TWO female characters playable?! Am I the only one who thinks this doesn't add up? No Mai, King, or even Yuri at least?! Either the roster is a severe disappointment and this is all we're getting... or...

There's a possibility that there's actually more to the roster that they're not telling us about. It doesn't make sense to me that they'd focus on freaking Clark instead of Mai. It doesn't add up, and I'm remaining hopeful that there's going to be more to the roster than what we know. Perhaps they only meant to have 20 playable at this event? But they might have far more in store... who can say? All I know is that if this is the final roster, then I'm not all that happy for it, and I hope that the gameplay is THE best in the series to make up for it.

But if it's not... bravo, SNK. You've played us like a string section. Grin
"Well, that's that! The exit's that way!"
I don't know about all of this... I'll be surprised if Mai doesn't make the cut, and I agree that K' is inevitable but surely SNK's problem after all these years is that they're spoilt for choice. They can't include everyone and some are gonna be pissed whoever gets chopped.

The other concern, imo, would be balance. With so many bad-ass characters to choose from it's gotta be tempting to fill up the roster with the "all rounders" we all love so much but then that would be like a Street Fighter with nothing but Ryu's and Guiles. Awesome though that would be for the first week, the depth we love KoF for would be lost to some extent.

In short, SNK NEED this game to be perfect, in every way, not just playing up to us fanboys. I trust them. The roster looks like a good mix to me.
My money goes on there being more characters not revealed yet. If this is the roster then in many ways I am pleased (and I dont mind there being way less characters than we have become used to), but then in other ways I am shocked (no Mai????). Remember how many hidden characters popped up in KOF XII, NGBC and SVC, I'm willing to bet the same will happen here, and although I think Mai and a few other expected characters will turn up, I think there will be some surprises right out the blue. Even if there are no more characters in the arcade version, I would put good money on there being bonus's in the home ports.

I hope I am right anyway... Pray

There will definately be more characters in the home version. Does anyone think there are too many power/grapple characters? I mean Ralf, Clark, Daimon AND Raiden is abit much.The game looks stunning though.
RE: New vid.


Capcom must be firing folk by now, haha.
Can't wait for that port!Thumbs Up
Not sure if these have been posted before but I shoved all these artwork images into a gallery. Very nice Smile


Missing 6 characters though, would be nice to find the art for them if they are up anywhere!

I'm definitely looking forward to KOF XII. I'm especially looking forward to playing with Iori, even though I'll have to relearn his moves again.
