Saudi Arabian Fan's Winning Character Design to Appear in SNK Game

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

A fighting game fan in Saudi Arabia's wish just came true. A contest organized by Manga Productions awarded participant BMashael the top prize: their design will appear in an unnamed SNK fighting game.

BMashael designed the character "Najd," a cool and collected Saudi Arabian girl that controls a demon-possessed abaya (a cloak-like robe garment).

Organizers originally advertised that the winner's design would appear in a Japanese fighting game. It wasn't revealed that King of Fighters' SNK was involved until game director Yasuyuki Oda appeared in a video to congratulate the winners. Other categories included Best Stage, Best Creative Design, Best Weapon Design, and Best Attack.
