SNK Working on New "RPG Project" for Smartphones


SNK fighting game fans are keeping their fingers crossed for the likes of a Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury, Last Blade, or Mark of the Wolves reboot. While SNK could very well be working on a new fighting game at this time, they've just announced a new RPG project for smartphones. The title isn't specified, but the first artwork  / promotional image claims that the game puts together an "academic story" with "hero drama" and will launch sometime in 2017. Check out the first image for the title, below.

While the 7 characters shown in the artwork appear to be completely new, observant SNK fans might notice some "similarities" with other SNK characters. For one, that buff Griffon mask-wearing fellow in the green most definitely resembles Tizoc from Garou: Mark of the Wolves.


Tizoc Jr. confirmed!? So could there be some kind of fighting game-inspired tie-ins in this new RPG by SNK? While fighting game fans are waiting to see which classic fighting franchise SNK will bring back next, this RPG title might be something to keep an eye on.

Stay tuned on for future updates regarding this upcoming mobile RPG by SNK.

TFG Webmaster Comment:  The artwork for this game definitely has a Card Fighters Clash "vibe" about it (which is still one of my favorite non-fighting titles from SNK, and pretty much my favorite card game of all time, by the way). Not to go off on too much of a tangent here, but a dream of mine is for SNK to release an online-enabled HD remake of the original Card Fighters Clash (released in 1999 for the Neo Geo Pocket). Even a new SNK VS Capcom: Match of the Millennium would be amazing to see, when the time is right.

Seeing SNK working on a new game in this "art style" at least gives me some hope that they haven't forgotten about their classic gems from the Neo Geo Pocket days. Seeing SNK "branch out" from fighting games is also a good sign of things to come. SNK stated previously that they're working on "many new projects" and will have some announcements to make in 2017.
