Stop…Roster Time!

(Thanks to Phil on the forums for the tip)

The roster for the upcoming installment of the King of Fighters XII has been released and for those interested, you can find out all the details of each character, including measurements, birthdate, and more (if you understand Japanese). I am surprised to only see 20 characters on the roster (I’m used to KOF 98 where there is twice that but I admit that I haven’t played the newest installments of the gamesince 2003) but even with a smaller roster than some  KOF titles, it has many fan favorites and is overall a well-rounded line-up.

    I’m actually surprised about how many characters are in the lineup. 2D HD graphics are very time intensive to draw. That’s why this game has been a good few years in the making.

    I’d rather a game that had 12 characters really nicely animated than one with twice as many poorly animated.

    Though I’m not sure it was your intent, invoking MC Hammer in a post title is tantamount to a terrorist act and punishable by death (Though I thought I had left it behind during my, iirc, freshan year of HS, ‘U Can’t Touch This’ is currently banging around me brain and you now have much for which you must answer!)

    Hehe, I don’t know why MC Hammer popped into my head when I wrote it but I found it amusing. Of course my amusement may lead to my ultimate demise. 😛

    You make a great point Molloy, I can certainly agree with that. I think that the overall anticipation for this game is building and I hope that I’ll have the funds to import it later next year – it will look really cool next to my BlazBlue cabinet.

    Its still early guys alot of devs like to announce new chars periodically before the release to keep the hype at a high point.

    I hope that Mai will be added at a further point… 😉

    Yeah I didn’t notice that she wasn’t there are first but she is a fan favorite so I’d be surprised to NOT see her on there at one point.
