Just to note, the cover for the US version of King of Fighters: Orochi Saga has since been changed. It's stylish as hell.

Also, for anyone considering their platform options, there will also be a Wii version in late November for $29.99. You know, if you bought that Wii arcade stick for Guilty Gear and need something else to do with it.

Lol, how dare you pick on Toshinden?! That game was great when it came out. It was one of the first 3D fighters, and one of the relatively few to this day that involved both full 3D movement AND energetic special attacks (like fireballs and stuff). For years after that game came out the only 3D fighters you could get were boring technical fighters like Virtua Fighter and Tekken.

I wouldn't say that the Toshinden brand is itself a huge draw, particularly without any of the original characters, but the original game was great.

You forgot to mention with the character news for Street Fighter 4 that schoolgirl Sakura, SF4 boss Seth, and Ken and Ryu's master Gouken will also be playable characters in the console versions of the games. I heard this news confirmed on G4's X-Play block a couple weeks ago.

I had the habit of frequently checking with stores, and I'm
convinced that several Software Etc. clerks still hate the kid who'd call several times a week to see if Breath of Fire was in yet (though they could've saved me forty uneventful hours by telling me it had been canceled)


Why? It sucks, compared to the sequels. Or were you just one of those gamers who was getting tired of Nintendo screwing over RPG fans until Pokemon came along. Wink

I'll probably need a few more years before I can talk about what the now-defunct publisher Working Designs and its release schedule did to my stress levels.


Still hoping we'll see that PS Goemon one day myself. Crying or Very sad

Some maintain that the Toshinden series was at its best when the original game, vapid as it was, amazed new PlayStation owners with its polygon visuals back in 1995. I, on the other hand, believe that the franchise peaked with the climax of the terrible two-part Battle Arena Toshinden anime


I thought Toshiden lost its rank after Tekken came along, but both had equally horrible anime spin-offs. [Though the live-action Tekken not featuring Sammo Hung seems to have a better cast than the Chun Li movie.]

So there you go, Dan fanbase. He's arguably surpassed the SNK characters he was originally supposed to parody.


He dies in the original Alpha anime, but fan complaints convinced them to save him.

Sakura was last week, Gouken was in the first article for October. Not sure about Seth.

Well, you certainly did a good job getting me curious about that Cyberbots game. I absolutely have to check it out now.

I'm really geting pumped for KOF being released. KOF is one of my favorite fighting games and getting to play some of the games I haven't played yet will be refreshing to me.

Guess I haven't paid much attention to the X Button as I thought. Laughing

But yes, Seth has been confirmed by Capcom to be a playable character for the console versions of the game. The best proof I can give, though I can't read Japanese kana, is this link I have to the
SF4 Japanese web site.

Damn, I knew I was wanting to buy a new console sooner or later!

I'd never played cyberbots before so cheers for the link. Although I have played the side scrolling sequel Armored Warriors. Thats another great capcom beat em up that we'll probably never see the like of again.
