  KOF XII: Completely Hand-Drawn

A minor debate started since KOF XII was revealed at the AOU last month, with some people still insisting that KOF XII was cel-shaded. There were actually rumours about a 3D cel-shaded KOF for some time, but the first thing I and many others thought when we first saw it was "wow it IS 2D after all!", although the video didn't stop some people questioning it.. not helped by the SNK USA employee on a recent video using the word "cel-shaded" as well. If there's still any doubt though, a recent post on Kotaku containing quotes from KOFXII producer Masaaki Kukino will put an end to any speculation:


"The game is one hundred percent hand drawn. There is zero cell shading in The King of Fighters XII."


So there you have it... not only is it 2D, but it's completely hand-drawn too, and with it being fully hi-res and looking as pretty as it does, that's damned impressive and almost unheard of in this day and age! I was half expecting to at least see 3D background elements or something, but SNK's quote from a year or more ago saying that it would be the "ultimate 2D game" are becoming more and more true. It looks fantastic, and if SNK can keep their promise with the gameplay too, then this one is going to be special indeed. Here's another quick quote from the article, as the person from Kotaku has apparently seen the latest build of the game in action:


"Today, I checked out the game's latest build at SNK's Osaka office and saw a few stages that haven't been revealed. Screens weren't available, but there was a French stage, complete with fat, rich women and an Egyptian one that had loyal subjects worshiping before the Pharaoh. Colorful stuff and classic SNK."


Sounds good... I'd love to see some high quality images and videos of the game, especially these as yet unseen backgrounds, so with any luck SNK will give us a peek sometime soon. We'll keep you updated as and when that happens.


Thanks to THX-1138 for the news!

Indeed, me too, I'm more excited about this than I have been about anything for some time. Now give us some high quality pics and more videos SNK! Grin
