KOF goes all shmup-y with KOF Sky Stage

KOF fan purists – brace yourselves. Or you might want to skip this post entirely but then again the damage is already done if you even noticed this.

For everyone else – talk about an unexpected twist in the King of Fighters series, although this is not the first time that SNK has toyed with taking the game in a different direction than what it has always been. SNK Playmore has unveiled a new KOF game that will be shown off at JAMMA next week called KOF Sky Stage. But this is not KOFXIII – it’s a whole new game that takes the franchise into the awesome land of shmups, bullet hell shmups in particular. We don’t know if it will give you 20-40 different characters to choose from (that’s unlikely) but for now we do know what it looks like and that it will be running on the Taito TypeX hardware. Stay tuned for more on this one.
