Developing The King
of Fighters World, an MMORPG for Smartphones
announced they are working on a King of Fighters-themed massive
multiplayer online role-playing game for smartphones. "KOF World"
is said to be free-to-play and will (of course) include additional paid
content. The gameplay will involve exploring, battling and puzzle-solving
through a "profound" storyline. King of Fighters World is
coming to Android & iOS and will first be released in China. SNK also
released a concept movie for King of Fighters World.
Note that this is a separate
project from that other mobile
RPG that SNK is developing in 2017. Even if mobile games or MMORPGs
don't particularly interest you, developing mobile games and expanding to
other genres besides "fighting" is a good way for SNK to earn
extra income. This could help fund SNK for rebooting other fighting game
franchises in the future, such as Samurai Shodown or Fatal Fury.
