A few years ago a Korean-based development company was working on a King of Fighters MMORPG. It never really went anywhere and before it could gain any traction it was shutdown. Well, recently, Dragonfly Studios and SNK announced that they are working on a new KoF MMO, and it’s scheduled to go live next year.

If I must say so myself, this new rendition of the KoF Online experience is truly amazing. While the graphics are sporting a 3D look in 3D environments, the animations and art-style still retain the true King of Fighters aesthetic. It’s a great spectacle and a noteworthy way to keep some semblance of the series intact.

The fighting, however, is now 8-direction based and plays out like Streets of Rage or other classic beat-e’m-up games. The good news is that all the character’s moves were kept and can be executed with some pretty cool looking special effects and camera work. A tag feature is also present, so players can switch up characters during the middle of a battle and the game will feature player-vs-player and player-vs-environment scenarios.

Based on the gameplay trailer released, it appears the game actually has a storyline to follow and will feature some familiar bosses from the game’s illustrious history.
