RUMOR: Vanillaware Games Getting HD Ports

According to 1up, the developers of Odin Sphere and Muramasa: the Demon Blade have reported that those games may get high definition ports sometime in the future. This makes sense given the nature of both games and comments that their director made last year. The only source for this report is 1up’s own unspecified contacts within Vanillaware – more than one, so this information is still unconfirmed. The main detail is that the HD ports will be downloadable, but 1up’s sources didn’t specify any platform. HD ports however probably mean the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Arcade. Read More


Why Doesn't Athena Look as Much Like Athena in King of Fighters XII?

As a longtime fan of King of Fighters character Athena Asamiya (why? Shut up, that's why), it did not escape my attention for even a moment that her character design in King of Fighters XII, seen at the far right of the above image, looked a bit different from the appearance she had sported over the years (left), outfit aside. Personally, I didn't think much of it, other than "oh, I guess they decided to redesign her a bit. Go figure." But Kotaku has managed to dig deep and get to the bottom of how they got to what you see on the right from what you see on the left. Read on to find out why. Read More

Today we have a new trailer and the complete character roster to share with you. Below you'll find the new trailer and you can get the complete list of fighters after the jump. Read More

King of Fighters XII Releasing Worldwide This July

Keep those Arcade sticks oiled up and primed because Ignition Entertainment and SNK Playmore sent word today that their upcoming fighter King of Fighters XII will be hitting stores around the world this coming July. Being released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, King of Fighters XII has decided to kick it old school and bring back the tried and true method of 2D sprites instead of opting for those of the third dimension. Hit the jump to see exactly what Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen had to say about the release. Read More


Rumor: King of Fighters XII Coming to 360 & PS3

The Tokyo Game Show 2008 is about 24 hours from getting underway and I just have one thing to ask you, faithful Kombo reader. Are you prepared for the onslaught of gaming news that is about to be thrust upon you? If you answered yes then you'll be happy to know that it's pretty much beginning.... NOW! Even before the doors have officially been opened at the Makuhari Messe, rumors are already swirling around about what is going to be announced, who is working on what, and if there is in fact, going to be a ton of mega dropped. While it isn't a huge announcement, Kotaku caught wind this afternoon that the completely redesigned The King of Fighters XII will be coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the PC sometime in near/distant future. No other information was given but I think it's a safe bet that we'll probably be seeing something on it later on in the week. Confirming what we heard last year, several sources tell us that eagerly awaited (and purdy fighter) The King of Fighters XII will be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Hope to hear more about the game come later this week when the Tokyo Game Show gets fully underway. -- Kotaku It's not only nice that King of Fighters has dropped all of their old sprites that were drawn back in 1991, but it'll be great to see what kind of impact it makes when it actually appears on a next-gen console. With Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (where is this?!), and now KOF back again, could we be seeing the second coming of the 2D fighter? Read More
