New Garou / Fatal Fury Fighting Game Green-lit

  

Immediately following the EVO '22 grand finals for The King of Fighters XV, SNK's Yasuyuki Oda went onstage to debut a new KOF XV trailer announcing Team Samurai as the game's fourth Team DLC. After confirming the return of Shingo Yabuki and Kim Kaphwan joining KOF XV in Season 2... it was also announced that a new Fatal Fury / Garou fighting game has been green-lit by SNK! Although SNK didn't reveal any specifics or details regarding the project thus far, the company shared this new Rock Howard concept illustration by Eisuke Ogura (below). The illustration also appears to show Kain R. Heinlein and Billy Kane standing behind Rock Howard in the background. Also see SNK's official teaser trailer!
 

 
 


 

  
"Legends never die... After more than 20 years, FATAL FURY / GAROU is coming back! Finally, the long awaited sequel has been green-lit!" said SNK in their official tweet. While the title is currently unknown, the new game appears to be a long-awaited sequel to Garou: Mark of the Wolves, released back in 1999. It will be interesting to see if SNK uses any inspirations or characters from the original canceled sequel to the 2D masterpiece.
