  Samurai Shodown VI - Game of the Month

Now that took longer than necessary! Herewith the (normally) monthly GOTM is back with another title from SNK Playmore. In 2005 they decided to let their third cash cow Samurai Shodown deliver a golden calf to the arcade platform Atomiswave. This time they took almost all the known characters from the previous games and crammed them into this dream match installment.



But was that calf as golden as it shone? In fact the SNK fanbase is a bit divided on Samurai Shodown VI. While some players celebrated the return of the series after the Neo Geo's "death" in 2004 others were not satisfied by the gameplay mechanics of their favorite oriental swordsmen and -women. How about you? You own the Japanese PS2 version or the Samurai Shodown Anthology? And how about another HSC with this one?

  The King of Fighters XIV Steam Edition announced

SNK (formerly known as SNK Playmore before the recent rebranding) just announced the PC version of The King of Fighters XIV on Steam. The release is scheduled for June 15th 2017. PC players who waited for a port with full controller-support, netplay and local VS mode can now look forward to this.

(The trailer screams for Billy Mays though, doesn't it?)




Simultaneously with the regular version SNK will also release a separate Deluxe Pack version which includes the digital soundtrack, artbook and the previous DLC characters and costumes.

  Interview with former Samurai Shodown development members

Polygon recently released an interview with three members of the original Samurai Shodown development team, Samurai Gumi. Since interviews or public discussions with former SNK employees are quite rare (also due to the back then typical anonymization of Japanese development staff), the following excerpt gives us a good insight into the minds of the creators behind Haohmaru & Co.



Credit for this brilliant interview goes to James Mielke of Polygon. At this point it's also worth mentioning that a few weeks ago another interview popped up with Keisuke Nishikawa who worked on the Real Bout Fatal Fury series. You will find the links below:

  The King of Fighters XI - Game of the Month

Worries aside, fellow Neo Geoians. We still have some related games to cover in our monthly GOTMs. This month we're dusting our PS2 or Atomiswave board to take a look at one of SNK Playmore finest games after the downfall of the original SNK team. We wind back to 2005, to an era where the PS2 was flourishing and the Neo Geo already was officially buried - but definitely not SNK's legendary franchises like KOF.



With King of Fighters XI SNKP continued the success story that they already carried on with KoF 2003. This one still has the fast tag system, new gameplay mechanics and characters from Garou and other SNK franchises. What are your guys' thoughts about the eleventh game? Does it do justice to the franchise's epic legacy? Or was it an effortless cash-in?... Let's find out here:

  Neo XYX - Game of the Month

Huh? It's already been more than a month? Yup, and it's about time for another actual Neo Geo title for this GOTM. With Neo XYX the probably most succesful indie / homebrew developer for the system NGDEV broke out in a slightly new direction. This time they followed the footsteps of the cult-studio Toaplan and paid a homage to the golden years of vertical shoot 'em ups.



What's your view on this homebrew title? Does it do justice to a fully-licensed vertical Shmup from the 90's or is it rather a bland effort to remind us of the better days? You be the judge in this month's thread. Expect lots of pewpew.

  In The Hunt - Game of the Month

What? A Game of the Month that has nothing directly to do with SNK or our Neo Geo? Blasphemy! Although, I advise you sceptics to hold your horses - in fact In The Hunt by Irem is strongly related to one of our favorite franchises on the Neo Geo. Experience a first class horizontal Shmup full of pixelated details, crazy bosses and screen-filling explosions!



Find out in our monthly GOTM thread why this game has some strong links to SNK - if you never played this game you would be surprised how familiar In The Hunt looks and plays like. And speaking of playing - why not bringing our traditional High Score Challenge back to life?...
