The King of Fighters XII Heads Back to the Drawing Board

Ugh. Just got the heat turned back on at Casa Robot (I’ve paid my bills, but apparently Jazz molested my gas furnace sometime yesterday afternoon). So quickly, here’s a trailer for the new King of Fighters XII game, most notable in that SNK actually redrew all the characters (and backgrounds) by hand, and it looks pretty sweet. The fighter fans over at GameTrailers are going nuts about it, although I wish there was an HD version of the trailer so I could better discern how pretty the game is. I actually do think it look better than SF4, but for some reason, that ridiculous 2-D sprites made from 3-D models look of Capcom Vs. Tatsunoko is still most impressive to me.
