I wonder if they're going to involve him in future story content for the series? Considering Geese is alive and Terry is only a few years older than Rock right now.

Are we just forgetting that Maximum Impact existed? Heh.

Don't make me bring out the MI Mary alt costume pic.

Loved it. Regulation A was great...I enjoyed playing it in arcades for the (sadly) few weeks that it was active before the home version dropped. :D

Oda talked about it on Twitter, and he's right. Rock's announcement comes almost a year after Daddy!

He uses Terry's​ and Geese's moves... Great, a clone character.
/s
Wait, is Geese's actually the plural of his name? I didn't realise how stupid it sounded.

But yeah, it's about damn time he got into a mainline KoF. There are other Garou characters I would have preferred, namely Kain, Gato and Kim Dong Hwan, but he was really the only choice.

Holy crap, I've been waiting for Rock to return for so long.

Was there a reason they stopped including him?

I bet it's gonna be something dumb like he was pulled from the MOTW universe like the another world team
Well it wouldn't be their first time doing this. Art of Fighting characters should be older than their Fatal Fury counterparts (Geese Howard was his younger self in AOF2), yet they didn't age at all in KOF.

Previously they didn't want to include him out of respect for the Fatal Fury team, said they wanted to see him in Garou 2 before in KOF.

The current SNK seems to be of a different opinion it seems, though to be fair the current dev team is filled with old Fatal Fury team members (even Rock's original character designer is working on XIV).

So I guess DLC characters are not canon?

If Nakoruru is canon...

Ah, I see. Interesting. Is the FF team separate from the KoF team?

Watching the trailer I understand why they saved this for last and why Oda was clearly frustrated because of the leak.

It scares me that oda said that this Rock will not be a low tier character, sice that reminds me of the DLC of KOF XIII where SNKP stated that thise characters will be stronger than tye regular cast (which actually was true)

They were back in the day.

...which is why Geese ended up alive in KOF while he died in Fatal Fury lol, the teams weren't communicating much.

Yup, no one would have seriously called this. It was sad seeing Oda and Rock's character designer disappointed on twitter.

The difference here is SNK is still actively working on XIV.

After XIII console release the dev team was disbanded, they couldn't rebalance the game even if they wanted to.

Oh yes! Yamazaki and Rock are two of my favourites, so this makes it even more difficult to settle on a team. I guess Billy, Nakoruru and Geese will have to go, but Mian, Leona and these new two are all essential...

I never really got into fighting games, but one day my older brother takes me out to games arcade and tell me to try out this one fighting games that he thought was cool at that time. That games was Garou: Mark of the Wolf and long story short I fell in love with the game and spent so many times (and allowance) playing rock without ever getting good at fighting games.

I might pick the game and DLC just for the sentimental value. Anybody knows why they never made the sequel for Garou?
