You also state that 4 years is not much, but it's actually the opposite.None of that is relevant. Do graphics evolve as an entire generation of console passes ? Of course. Does that mean that a middle-gen game shouldn't come out at the end of the gen ? What the fuck of course not. There's nothing wrong with a middle-gen-tech game coming out at the end of the generation. Who the fuck cares that other companies can transform how a game looks over a generation if they keep pouring money into it.
Mortal Kombat is an excellent example of this.
MKX was released in 2015 while MK11 was released in 2019.
Here's the graphical comparison:
"NRS is not an AAA company" lol yeah right have you not heard of Warner Bros who have been bankrolling the game since they bought NRS.
Just because a parent company is rich, doesn't mean the studio is.The parent company being rich doesn't mean the studio is rich, but if the studio has an open line to the parent company's bank vault it absolutely does mean the studio is rich. This is not the case for SNK.
Also, If you search on twitter and look at many of the reactions made by these people, you see them mocking the franchise as "dead" or being "irrelevant". They don't take the game seriously anymore as they used to unlike KOF'98 or KOF'02.The franchise died in 2001, then in 2002, then in 2006, then after XIII. Anyone who claims that XV existing means the franchise is dead is just plain out of touch with reality.
Sure, SNK's marketing is a problem but KOF: ALL STAR was a massive hit around the world and it wasn't due to some success at the marketing department at Netmarble, it was the franchise's nostalgic elements that sold the game.Evidence of the contrary : there are other KoF mobile games. They don't do well. And you barely know they exist.
Netmarble has had franchises like Marvel and Seven Deadly Sins and a bunch of other massive IPs, they know how to advertise their shit. I wouldn't have touched KoFAS if it had been made by Tencent.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
