When Ledo Millenium acquired SNK couple years back, it was announced that the company will pursue anime and movie adaptations of their major IPs. The first of these projects is the currently airing The King Of Fighters Destiny anime series which has been, so far, met with praise from fans (and this site) for its spot on characterizations and awesome fight choreography. Now, only few weeks after launching the first anime in years, SNK has stated on their corporate websites that several anime and movies are in the works for their franchises.
The statement appeared on SNK website under a “Cross media” section, and mentions that SNK is developing various anime and movie projects for their famous ips, specifically mentioning Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, and Metal Slug.
There has been a rumor that we have heard stating that SNK is working on both a new Samurai Shodown game and an anime adaptation.
Back in the 90’s SNK has been very active in the anime side of things, with various anime projects including Samurai Shodown, Art of Fighting, and Fatal Fury, the latter being the major success, spawning 2 OVAs and 1 theatrical movie.
