My dream revivals would be:

- A new Last Blade in glorious 2D (unlikely but you never know)
- A new World Heroes
- Some sort of follow-up to Neo Geo Battle Coliseum...they could re-use the KOF XIV engine and a lot of the characters but throw in all manner of classic, obscure and left-field SNK characters as they did with the previous crossover.

NGBC rocked, the range of characters was great, I probably preferred it to SvC Chaos in some ways. So yeah, that with more characters is something I'd support. Also, a follow up to SvC would be interesting - it'd need a huge roster from both sides - something SNK has got sorted by the looks of KOF XIV.

Two more new characters. A character from one of SNK's pachinko games and a brand-new fighter who can control sand (looks cool!).

Sandman looks awesome, gotta say I'm liking some of these new characters. I really want to see who the new character with Chang & Choi is...

Oh yes...now that we've got Mai, Ryo AND Geese, I'm pretty much satisfied. Anybody else will be a bonus now :)

Hint to SNK: B. Jenet or (slightly more leftfield) Neo Dio plz

So...many...new characters. Is this SNK taking a dump on Capcom from a great height? :lol:

In all seriousness, would anybody believe that this game is coming from a company that has been bought out or gone bankrupt more times than I've had hot dinners? This is looking seriously fantastic and I can't wait :D

Those are rumours at the moment though aren't they? As it reads almost identically to my wish list :lol: Well maybe Bao wouldn't be in there... I'd buy Yamazaki, Raiden, Jin, Eiji, Heidern and Vanessa in a heartbeat. Could do with putting Lin in there though...

Roster wise SNK are doing great. I'm liking the look of so many of the new characters plus I'm really happy at some of the returning characters like Tung and Geese. Now if they manage to get single and multiplayer right I'm sold!

A good omen of things to come? Apparently SNK have announced via Twitter that they are changing the company back to simply 'SNK' (dropping the 'Playmore' bit) and re-instating the classic "The Future Is Now" slogan :)

Really, I hope this does well so we can get a Capcom vs SNK 3. Hey, a man can dream.

16 Minutes of proper gameplay footage. Get hyped.

- Character models & animation are a billion times better than that horrible initial reveal that had us all worried.
- King of Dinosaurs *cough* Tizoc *cough* looks unbelievably awesome.
- Mai's animation is very satisfactory :wink:

DLC skin for Nightmare Geese revealed. Changes appearance, voice and (I think) special move effects:

Unlike KOF13 THIS looks like a proper KOF game, not a Blazblue wanna be
