Neo-Arcadia's booth @ Japan Expo 2008

July 12, 2008

Japan Expo 2008 was recently held in France and arcade-related website Neo-Arcadia was there with a booth and plenty of screenshots to boot. The arcade presence at the expo brought many games into one place that you would typically find in Japan but would be hard pressed to find all in one place elsewhere. The game roster is pretty impressive, as an example:

Baston: Mark of the Wolves, The King of Fighters’98 Ultimate Match, Samurai Spirits Zero Special, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Melty Blood Act Cadenza ver.A, The King of Fighters XI, Hokuto No Ken , Martial Masters, The Rumble Fish 2, Super Street Fighter II X, Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper, Sengoku Basara X, Guilty Gear Accent Core, Battle Fantasia.

Shoot’em up : Zero Gunner 2, Ketsui, Dragon Blaze, ESP Galuda 2, DoDonPachi Dai Fukkatsu 1.5, Death Smiles, Border Down, Batrider, Mazinger Z, Mushihime Sama Futari Black Label, GigaWing.

Other: Oriental Legend 2, Puzzle Bobble 2X, Windjammers, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny Vs ZAFT II

At least I can say that I’ve played a couple of games on that list but I’ve not had the chance to play a majority of them. At least I can vouch for how great Oriental Legend 2 is. Naturally they also had several tournaments running during this time and overall it looks like their booth attracted a great crowd of people.

While there are many pictures of the event at their site, what better for posting than a video tour of the NeoArcadia booth.

King of Fighters XII

King of Fighters XII has whipped up a wave of excitement as of late, with a recent poll suggesting that our fine readers are looking forward to it more than any other fighting game, even Street Fighter IV. Part of this is down to a stunning trailer released at AOU which showcased the new high resolution 2D graphics, which arrive as part of the first complete King of Fighters sprite redraw since KOF 96. Anyhow, a bunch of screenshots of this loveliness recently surfaced at Famitsu, so don’t delay in clicking that link!

While many gamers are eagerly awaiting the arrival of SNK’s KOF XII, SNK is releasing another KOF game in a few weeks, the remake of KOF98, known as KOF98 Ultimate Match. An official site has been created for the game which includes a number of scree caps and a video of part of the new attract mode. While we haven’t heard about an official release of this game for markets outside Japan, Coinopexpress will be carrying the game after March 31st. Check out the site by hitting the link below.

King of Fighters XII English Trailer

February 27, 2008

It looks like KOF 12 was shown off at GDC and with it an English translation of the Japanese trailer (I couldn’t find any other differences). Video via youtube user ikarileo which is via GameVideos.com. Also an HD version of the trailer is available on Gametrailers.com which I would post but we can’t do embedded videos from that site for some reason.

Fighter poll results: King of Fighters XII or Street Fighter IV?

February 23, 2008

A few days ago I posted a poll via Survey Monkey asking a few questions about your thoughts on all of the new fighters coming out of Japan and I have to admit that I am a little bit surprised at the results so far. Unfortunately due to the way Survey Monkey works you can’t see the current results (if anyone knows of a better polling system that can be integrated into a WordPress blog LMK because apparently there aren’t any), so here they are as of the writing of this post. Keep in mind that the poll never closes so if there are any major changes then I’ll be happy to let everyone know the results in our forum. Overall, most of you are more excited for the new King of Fighters XII than any other fighter. Of course now the question is, will SNK be releasing it outside of Japan (in arcades) or will fans have to import it (or wait for a console version)?
