SNK Has “Many New Fighting Games” in Development, Reveals Yasuyuki Oda
In a recent interview with IGN Latin America, The King of Fighters XIV producer Yasuyuki Oda revealed that SNK has “many new fighting games” in development. Although he was unable to reveal any details, he asked fans to stay tuned for updates.
In the same interview, Oda also answered a series of questions about The King of Fighters, stating that the developer isn’t sure whether the latest entry, XIV, will have any more DLC or patches. “When we released new characters back in April, the fans’ reception was very good, so if we were to make extra content, rather than new costumes, we’d like them to be new characters because that’s what fans like the most,” he added.
As for whether there will be a new entry in The King of Fighters series, Oda could neither confirm nor deny anything but said he’s “convinced” that The King of Fighters XV will be a reality.
When asked if SNK is considering making new entries for Fatal Fury or Art of Fighting, Oda said:
Of course we are always considering making a new entry of such series, the problem is the company’s approval for us to make it. There are a lot of people to convince, which is very difficult, but of course it’s something we’d like to do.
