The King Of Fighters Destiny finished its first Season last week in China, with Japan and the west getting the last two episodes this week and next. Since the season finale leaked, fans were awaiting news of the series renewal for more seasons and were also intrigued by that confusing last scene showing Kyo in his KOFXIV costume, making us question whether the series, if it ever comes back, will skip the Orochi and Nests sagas and Jump directly to KOFXIV.
Well, Orochi saga fans rest assured, as it has been confirmed by Idragons, the animation company working on the series, that the King Of Fighters Destiny will explore the entire Orochi Saga, specifically from KOF94 to KOF97. The series will have a total of 3 seasons and end the saga with a full featured animated film. This means There are 2 more seasons to deal with KOF95 and 96 before probably ending the Orochi saga in a featured film, with higher budget.
The information appeared on Idragon’s website, and thanks to our talented translator Jovita Ho, you can see the full translation below:
“The story starts with Fatal Fury and “KOF94” and goes until the end of “KOF97”. The animation is expected to be made in three seasons, ending in the form of a big movie.
During an era when people didn’t have much to keep themselves entertained, KOF games became the trusted companion of a generation. Today’s King of Fighters is not only a game, but a symbol of childhood. This official animation makes up for the regrettable lack of one in the past, and I know it would definitely bring up fond memories in people’s minds! Currently, rights to the first season have been developed by Yinhan Games, and the animation will be distributed by Tencent Games. Other related commercial co-operations are also underway — welcome all on board!“
The King Of Fighters Destiny started in July 2017, with weekly short episodes being released online. SNK offered an English Subtitled version of the anime in a simultaneous release with Japan. The series was highly praised for its plot and action, but heavily criticized for its short episode length and some iffy CGI models. Now that the first season is out of the way, and with Idragons promising that they are listening to the complaints, here is home the subsequent seasons offer longer episodes, and better CGI (if not switching to 2d animation).
