Wow this is pretty impressive. Kotaku has been chatting to SNK about their upcoming Street Fighter competitor “The King of Fighters XII” and something very interesting came out.
The entire game is entirely hand drawn, they are using no cell shading what so ever and when you watch the video it really does show. It would take an artist an entire day to colour in 1 and half frames. Now that is dedication.
It is also a great marketing technique because now a game that I had ignored completely has jumped straight up to being a must have game. That dedication has to be rewarded. I am really hoping it plays as well as it looks.
