I'm sorry to backtrack into the discussion, but whatthefuck kind of argument is that about KoF's soundtrack? They made more new soundtracks and remixes a lot better than any other franchise which also includes games from other companies, not to mention their arranged soundtracks from the old days are amazing, the current stuff is also good not to mention the original arcade release of KoF XIII was all new tracks for every team. As far as personalities and winposes yeah KoF XIII suffered for it they don't have as much, but the characters still retain their charm. And mind you they redrew on a new art-style while keeping in mind that the sprites should move as fluidly as SF3's sprites and did that on a tight budget.
Also there's no guarantee that the new games will be any good specially the Persona game and this is coming from a guy that likes the series but let's face facts, most spin-offs of other series Arc has made like Hokuto no Ken and Sengoku Basara X never got very far in competitive play nor were they big successes, not to mention people are tired of BB revisions just as much as people are tired of Capcom's revisions, only difference is that Capcom advertises the shit out of their revisions while Arc keeps it more quiet, drawing less rage on their side.
And meanwhile when someone tries to revitalize a series by actually making an effort to make a game that old and new fans can appreciate it you call it "old" not to mention that this effort was their way of apologizing just their fuck-up. Just please do tell what's your definition of "not old", is it 3D visuals with over-dramatized super moves? A game that characters don't seem to ever shut the fuck up and make double jumps and air dash? Story that walks around in circles and never actually goes anywhere? Broken on release gameplay and disc full of content that's sold rather than unlockable so they can hype the content for additional money because "it's t3h full 3xperienz", please, do tell. I've yet to see any good argument to defend your claims.
