Hi, welcome to our humble blog. I’m Vincent Chua, and if you have been a KOF fan for quite a while, you might have visited our previous website at http://www.kofonline.com, based on The King of Fighters (KOF) Series, a popular 2D fighting game created by SNK Playmore.
This blog is named after the website’s name ‘The King of Fighters Online’. The site is no longer available and the domain name has since been taken over by others after we decided we close the site few years back, but some of its contents can still be found in the Web’s Archives.
Being a fan blog, this site will contain consolidation and selection of related news and information gathered from various websites on the Web, with due credits given to them. There’s currently no plans to provide detailed information such as movelists and combos on this blog yet, though that might change as this site gradually evolves.
So what made me decided to return to the KOF scene after abandoning it? I have been into Xbox and Xbox 360 the past few years, and now there are confirmed news that the latest installment of the KOF series will be making its way to Xbox 360 in April 2009! This certainly is great news to Xbox 360 owners and KOF fans alike, and this has motivated me to create this simple KOF-related blog.
This is the first time SNK Playmore is making a complete revamp to its sprites (i.e. drawings of its characters, weapons etc in-game) after a long 14 years since the series’ debut, and they have announced 100% hand-drawn animations for this upcoming game. This revamp was actually long overdue but KOF fans are of course still welcoming this big change, with high expectations.
This latest installment is titled ‘The King of Fighters XII’, and let’s hope SNK Playmore will not disappoint us this time, and allow us to revive the good old days of KOF!
