King of Fighters XII is completely hand drawn

So says this. That really does mean everything.

“The game is 100 percent hand drawn,” said producer Masaaki Kukino. “There is zero cell shading in The King of Fighters XII.”

He added: “We knew it was going to be hard going in. But we wanted to make the ultimate 2D fighting game.”

The title was shown in video form for the first time at the recent AOU arcade show in Tokyo. It will release for 360 and PS3 in 2009.

    This is EXACTLY how SFIV should have looked. This looks fantastic, rather than the fairly rubbish-looking SFIV.

    isn’t that what the HD version hitting PSN and XBLA later this year is about though?

    Yeah, maybe. It looks great, too, and I’m looking forward to it.
