Now let's listen to an chinese old folk's rendition of Lady Gaga: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF5WYaoWXI4

I like the intro music...and the band.

no reason why they shouldn't be able to make a 2d game. there's like a bajillion 2d animation houses there with unlimited people that work for free.

Both gameplay and design wise it looks KOFish

Thumbs up!
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

It looks as good as KoF, however, I think they skipped the KoF step of hand tracing their models.

...which would have saved KoF fans from XII, if SNK had done the same.

But then again, maybe it's only being a tiny offscreen video helping the game's look, and it looks worse in full quality.

Something more than KOFish. blue character is 90% Mature, if I'm not mistaken, and the fighting system seems almost ripped off line-by-line. That said, I'm impressed. Great work on backgrounds and animations, and it looks very clean. Will check for progress.

some of the moves are direct ripped from KOF lol..

ripped moves i've spotted so far.

Iori's hopping kick
Iori's vertical slash
Kensou's kick
Ash's anti air kick, the follow up downward kick looks like suspicious, i can't recall whose move was that.
the super flash looks just like KOF's DM flash
Iori's DM follow up (the black geyser thing)
Kyo's counter (the shoulder tackle)
Iori's crouch heavy punch
K' 's Neo Max
Vice's air to ground slash (without the slashing part)
Rugal/Mature's DM? looks different enough
Athena's standing posture
Athena's projectile
Athena's teleport, it's an anti air sort of move in here.
Heinlein's forward charging move
Freeman's anti air



i mean it's ok to have similar moves but don't go and copy the posture blindly lol

Looks awesome.

Like Rumble Fish + KOF.

I don't see much coping in this. In 90ties there was much more ripping off going on in 2d FG.

This shit actually looks fresh.

Compared to what?

I'd say they're pretty oppsite from boring/bland.

COnsidering that the examples you've chosen are designs which date back to the early to 90s. It's not a very fair comparison.

That said, these designs look so unoriginal, which is expected considering that the game looks like a complete KOF ripoff.

Timeless, instantly recognizable fighting character design is not bland.
And this game revels in a retread of KOF's recent 'looks like a clubber/rave addict instead of someone who spent their lives learning to fight' school of design.

To some people, yes it is.

The whole look like "clubber" that only a few characters have must be working for you considering your Poison avatar.

Searching the game title in Chinese characters yielded some news articles on it, with character art and direct screens.

I like the aesthetics a lot, even if they're cribbed pretty wholesale from KoF.

I swear Athena looks different in every KOF. I don't recall where that gimmick started but they do sure like to run with it. :p

Haha, they weren't even trying to make that girl look different from Athena, if that artist drew her in a KOF it'd be the same damn person. That's just wrong. XD
