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.
