    I like the way that all the legacy games that preceeded this are now dead :(

    I was never really an SNK afficianado, but haven't most of the memorable characters from each of the series' already made appearances in the KoF games? From a pure gameplay standpoint, I'm sure KoF has eclipsed them all in terms of what has been offered.

    So we've gone from hand-drawn animation to rotoscoping, to cgi, to cell-shaded cgi, and then to rotoscoped cell-shaded cgi in an attempt to capture the look of hand-drawn animation.

    From my understanding, it is all actually hand drawn.
    If that is the case, that sort of flies in the face of Capcom's statement that they had pushed hand drawn sprites as far as they could with Street Fighter III.

    That's what I get for not verifying my info. LOL
    Why do people at work bother me when I am trying to read Kotaku?

    Yes, these sprites are rotoscoped cell-shaded cgi. That is exactly what they are.

    Rotoscoping means drawing over or otherwise incorporating a film or video element with animation. It was the original motion-capture technique.

    Looks slick, are we seeing a resurgence of the 2-D fighter?

    Looks good, but I haven't been much of a SNK fan since Playmore bought them. I would like to see a Metal Slug game done like this though.

    if Mature and Vice aren't in it, I'm not interested :p 

    I AM glad that they aren't succumbing to the siren call of 3d, though.
