In EVO 2022, my and thousands of people’s dreams and hopes became reality. SNK announced that a new Fatal Fury/Garou game is coming, actively in development. Unfortunately, apart from the brilliant art from the reveal, not much detail was provided.
Thanks to Gamescom 2022, and Twinfinite, we have more info about the upcoming game from SNK. Recently in an interview with producer Yasayuki Oda and Joshua Weatherford, the website tried to squeeze some info regarding the game.
Firstly, the game has started development, and this isn’t the case in which the game is greenlit. The upcoming game for SNK is a big release. Hence the game will take a while before being shown in public. The developers are taking extra care, ensuring it is perfect before prime time.
As per Oda-san, when he returned to SNK in 2014, he told the president Eikichi Kawasaki that he wanted to make a new Garou game. It took a while but want to bring the game was one of his goals. According to the team, there will be more focus on the single-player mode compared to the recent releases.
Oda-san also acknowledges the time gap between the games, and they have a few plans to overcome confusion. When asked about bringing back the old titles, Oda-san didn’t directly confirm it. However, he confirmed Terry Bogard coming back in the game.
