In today’s post: KOF98 for smartphones, a new Metal Slug Defense update and a questionnaire to be shown to SNK regarding figurines.
‘NEW’ KOF98 FOR QQ SMARTPHONES
Pharaon dropped this link today,mostly to a response of horror and dismay, with a sprinkling of interest and hope.
Why? Because at first it seems to be a new KOF 98, with new portrait graphics, and the title of “same but different” tag raising other hopes.
Well, we had KOF98FE already, right? Tencent has other ideas, and as we’ve all seen with recent movements in the industry (Konami, Namco for example), it’s clear the mobile platform is the most lucrative. Why not make more console games? We can all cry, beg and scream but looking at the finance required and the risk, we can also just die. If people didn’t spend money on smartphone games, companies wouldn’t make them. Blame people!

That’s about all the research that was done before turning off and crying in the corner; this game actually looks quite good. The thing with portable games is that they just that, portable. It’s too easy to pull this out of your pocket to have a 5 minute bash in the toilet. Not quite so easy to set up a monitor and console on the train, or anywhere.[/column][/row]
So, you might as well soak in the screenshots and watch the video on the site. Who knows, if 10,000 people want it, Tencent could work on translation but the last petition for XDZW could only muster 983…
MSD: THE KIM OF FIGHTERS
[row][column width=”1/2″] [/column][column width=”1/2″] [/column][/row]
SNK had asked what kind of units would you like next? And a massive argument ensued, where some fans were complaining that there were too many KOF units, whereas others argued that KOF was central to MSD’s success. The answer seems quite obvious: if people didn’t buy KOF units, SNK would stop making them. It has nothing to do with fan favourites, it’s pure business sense. Metal Slug is more popular than KOF in some countries, for example Italy, but globally KOF is a prime IP for SNK.
At any rate, the next release, which has already been planned for a while, is the Kim team (of Justice).
But that’s not all, there are new units, areas and missions too! Available from August 6th on Android with IOS following asap after.
