Game Watch interviews Yasuyuki Oda at ChinaJoy

KOFXIVlogo

An interview made by Game Watch, at ChinaJoy 2016 at Gamepoch Experience Center, The King of Fighters XIV director Yasuyuki Oda discussed on the relationship between SNK and the Chinese market, touches a bit on the Rush Combo and contents of the game like patches, and the sensitive issue of the censorship in the Chinese version of the game.

He also hinted that he will be preparing for the next SNK project after the release of KOF XIV.

Thanks to SNK Lover (via Twitter), some of the interview highlights are translated.

  • SNK seems happy with the Chinese public, and certainly they are a great bet, as they are a big market.
  • There will be no ON /OFF option for Rush Combo, and it was decided during the EVO where the Rush was not used and not even exploited. (Professor’s Correction:“There’s no on-off switch for the Rush system and we believe that the Rush System has been balanced enough that advanced players won’t be able to exploit it. In fact, nobody at Evo was using it, and I believe it’s because the advanced players are better off without it.)
  • No DLC for now, only the 50 characters! … But anything can happen …
  • Apparently Oda was challenged in the event, and it was not this time, again, that he won.
  • Several censorship happened in the Chinese version (Ex: Luong and Angel)
  • It is expected one patch per year for XIV, as Oda after the release of XIV will prepare himself for the release of another SNK game. (Professor’s Correction: Updates are something we’ll need to think about. Traditionally we released a new KOF on an annual basis, but whether that fits with the customer’s need in the modern age is something we need to figure out.” “(For the future of the KOF series) As a creator I want to make it into something new, but players will have a difficult time if the rules keep on changing so its’s something of a headache.)
  • Oh, and DOA vs. KOF hasn’t been thought yet, only Mai until now…and there are no plans to put DOA characters in the KOF franchise. (note: due to the fact that Mai Shiranui will appear as a guest character in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round)

UPDATE: Professor of MadMan’s Cafe added a few details in the interview and some corrections.

  • According to the interview, a Chinese seiyuu, Ryu Seira (real name: Liu Jingluo) will have have a role in KOF XIV, (it’s either Meitenkun or Mian), but her role will be determined soon.
