All we knew about it on the time is that it existed and that SNK was lastly making a brand new Fatal Fury title after 23 years. Thanks to an interview at Gamescom 2022 made by Twinfinite, there’s a bit extra to dissect.
For one, the game isn’t only a conceptual dream on the present second. No, it’s really in growth. SNK acknowledged that the most recent Fatal Fury game is a “very big release” for the corporate, so it’ll be a major chunk of time earlier than we see extra. Such because the game’s roster or gameplay tidbits.
Something fascinating about that is there’s a extra vital emphasis on the single-player content material than in the previous couple of SNK video games. While the game will nonetheless deal with VS gameplay and on-line, the central highlight can be hogged by the Story beats and such. To be honest, Fatal Fury’s story is somewhat complicated. So, if this turns into a actuality, possibly one thing like Guilty Gear Strive’s GG World mode may assist individuals catch up.
Yasuyuki Oda (higher referred to as Oda-san) additionally talked about what occurred after his tenure at Dimps at first of 2014 and mentioned, “please let me make a new Garou game” to SNK president (on the time) Eikichi Kawasaki. Bringing the collection again was one in every of his targets, and it took fairly some time for all the things to fall into place.
As for the roster, the game has just one confirmed character, collection icon Terry Bogard. Oda-san didn’t immediately touch upon whether or not the previous cast would return or if we’d see a generational leap and get a ton of newer fighters, so there’s no actual assure we’ll see characters like Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi, and Gato, amongst others.
We’ll proceed to update as extra details about the brand new Fatal Fury title is launched.
