I guess we can all be friends now. It started with a copyright infringement allegation — Square Enix published manga, High Score Girl, was using characters owned by SNK Playmore without permission.
Briefly: SNK Playmore confirmed to Siliconera that a new 3D King of Fighters game is in development. The company didn’t provide any further details, and it’s currently in the process of “large scale developer hiring” for the new game.
Available now for the iPhone in Japan, The King of Fighters I delivers three-on-three team fights and one-on-one battles between 14 different fighters, with SNK Playmore promising six additional characters by October. Read all about it at Adriasang.
