EVO 2022: SNK Announces Development of New Fatal Fury Game


- Advertisment -spot_imgspot_imgspot_imgspot_img

The title will be the franchise’s first new entry since 1999.

On stage at EVO 2022, SNK announced that a new entry in the long-dormant Fatal Fury/Garou series is in development. It will be the first entry in the series since 1999’s Garou: Mark of the Wolves. No release window or platforms were named, as the announcement was only paired with a short teaser trailer and a single piece of artwork.

Currently, SNK is only referring to the game as “New Fatal Fury/Garou”, but it does appear to be a follow-up to Mark of the Wolves, as the teaser trailer ends with the reveal of Rock Howard, the protaganist of that title.

The short teaser trailer gives us three mysterious hints of what to expect in the game’s story, including, “The City of Legend Still Breathes”, “Hungry Wolves Back on the Prowl”, and “A New Destiny Hidden In Darkness”. Along with the reveal of Rock, two silhouettes were shown in the background during the trailer. These two characters appear to be Billy Kane, a recurring character throughout the series, and Kain R. Heinlein, the final boss of Garou: Mark of the Wolves.

Also known as the Garou series, the Fatal Fury franchise began in 1991 with the release of Fatal Fury: King of Fighters on the Neo Geo. The series continued on the Neo Geo through the 1990s, until Garou: Mark of the Wolves launched in late 1999. The series came to a halt after that entry, meaning this newly-announced title will be the franchise’s first in over 20 years.

Even though the series has been dormant for over two decades, many of its characters have lived on through SNK’s King of Fighters series, which combines characters from Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and more. Characters such as Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, and Joe Higashi are staples in the KOF series. Rock Howard, Geese Howard, and more have been added to KOF XV as DLC characters.
