  • Build it, shape it, by my will.
Seriously, what is taking them so long to reveal the last member of Women's Fighters?

Now that she's back, Gang-Il isn't far behind.  I can't wait if they finally decide to give Kim's pants the animation it desperately needs.

Well there goes my wish for Jhun or May Lee reappearing.

That aside, Luong seems to not receive much redesign from her XIV counterpart.
I wish she wore a reformed ao dai or smth we saw from Kim's ending cuz you know... she's Vietnamese and all.

YESSSS !! It was Luong! It could not be someone else.

Also, her design is pretty much the same but seems like she have the quality and details of the few good designed ones in KOFXV.

Seems like they didn't touch up anything about her gameplay.
Even her Climax "Ben" seems to be exactly the same.
I was a bit worried they went for something less "risqué" (because 2021...)

Nothing bad to say about her, she looks good. Even If I had hopes for a little improvement/variation about:
-specials
-Climax
-overall appearance

Interesting that they show some interaction with Shermie... Of course, Luong is not the "only one" now, since Shermie is back...

Also, WTF with the win pose... ^^;

I'm not really fa of May Lee, but Jhun return would be so awesome!!!

Keep in mind, this is now four incomplete teams we have: K' Team, Women's Team, Blue Mary Team and now Korea Team. We pretty much know the composition of two of them, K' and Korea, but jeez man...I have no problem with the character whatsoever, but the last person on the Women's Team better not be the exact same Alice from XIV, and K' himself better not be the exact same either. There's no other real reason for their reveals to have taken this long.

Luong looks as good as ever, I'd say. Not much to say about her, really.

I would normally say they're waiting to reveal the complete Women's team because it's a new character / old returning unexpected character, but we all know it's going to be Alice.
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.

I'm actually glad to see Luong. We have had far too many old characters and quite few from 14, so at least they seem to want to keep some from 14, which is a good thing. I love classic characters, and the idea of old characters make debut in KoF, but I was starting to get afraid for the last game's newcomers. One thing that's for sure is that it seems like there will be very few newcomers in general.

What is there to be worried about? Just don't play him if he gets in.

Its pretty much a given. As of their endings in XIV Chang and Choi are still stuck with Xanadu, in tge same way Kim is still stuck with Gang-Il and Luong.

That he takes a precious slot in the roster when another character could fill that spot.
Also, I find him weird overall. Weak gameplay, wonky design and confusing narrative. He just looks too Street Fighter-ish and I don't like that. Leave all the cartoony stuff to Capcom.

I get that he's a villain character and all, but KOF series had stylish antagonists like the New Face Team, Botan, Shion, Ron and etc. Xanadu.... not so much.

Nobody's stealing slots

They're repurposing all the work they did with the last game to ensure this one has a huge roster which means if your character didn't make it in they weren't ever gonna make it I'm afraid
Honestly? Did you not read the colony policy?
That defines you as company property?
That waivers your say in autonomy?
The conglomerate’s got you in lock and key
We put the dollar back into idolatry
If you’re upset you can rent an apology
We are a family forged in bureaucracy
No I in ‘team’ but there’s con in ‘economy’
Were you expecting adventure?
Were you hoping for fun?
My friend you’re indentured
And pleasure’s exempt from your tenure
So venture back down to your slum
That's provided at generous prices
Your worth is determined by your sacrifices

Knowing SNK and their financial status, I guess you're right...

I'm just not so fond of him as a character in general... I think he should've been a completely different design than his bulgy eyed fur coated dude.

Well, I understand if you're not a fan of his design. He's not for everyone, but the "taking up a slot" thing is nonsense. Kim is for sure already in the game and he was in XIV too. Xanadu isn't taking anybody's "slot." Especially in the era of fighting games where DLC is a thing.

Xanadu is cool as fuck to me personally

Out of all KOF 14 newcomers Xanadu was probably the one who stood the most out, and the one I'm most excited to see return. Luong was one of them, same with Smokey (Antonov). If all of them make it I get my faves from KOF 14.
