Ignition Entertainment is asking the fans of The King of Fighters series (in preparation for KoF XII release) to hop over to the official KoF forums and vote on your favorite box art for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
King of Fighters is (one of / the only) remaining fighter that is still using hand-drawn animation. For some enthusiasts of the fighter platform, this is the only way to play fighters and for others, seeing classics like Street Fighter IV move to full 3D was jarring at first, but I think Capcom has shown with careful attention to detail, the transition can be made without entirely changing the game. The retro in me loves to see new releases coming out for the KoF franchise with the characters fully intact in 2D however… most likely because that’s the only way I’ve ever known them.
Here’s some gameplay bits from the Terry Bogard character intro for KoF 12. Note that while the animation is still hand drawn, the fighting has certainly been spruced up with plenty of 3D effects:
The choices have been narrowed down to 2 options for each platform and you must create a forum account to vote for one:
