Funny, it's almost 3 months before SNK's 10th Death Anniversary.
Well, I still cling for hope, and have faith, even there are blockades in the way. No pressing of the panic button.
*Though my other self wants to smack a KOF XII cabinet in frustration with a sledge hammer and screams "It's all your fault!!!"*
In before "Please buy SNKP, Capcom!" I had enough of those shenanigans.
I suddenly remembered something. SNKP were hiring programmers (independent or not) by October (probably weeks after one of their programmers stepped down). I read that somewhere.
Regardless of what happened, it was a blow to KOF XIII's Console production.
