According to SNK, Heroines is canon enough to know that Shermie is alive and well, which alongside the also very much canon manga KOF A New Beginning (which every KOF should mean IMO, as it explains Geese's Alt Costume) would mean that yesterday's announcement of Yashiro shouldn't catch us by surprise :)

The manga was endorsed and supervisioned by SNK but it is not canon, especially considering how many liberties it takes with the story. They may end taking some ideas from it but it was always intended to be its own thing.

Notice how Yashiro is acting friendly towards Iori in their interaction. I believe this implies that he doesn't really remember anything that happened at all. Since Orochi was sealed for good in the previous game I guess they'll take their team in a new direction, possibly to redeem them.

C You Soon.

Well, from what happend in KOF XIV surely Yashiro, probably Shermie and Chris would return.

Didnt they all get resurrected in SNK Heroines. That game is canon isnt it?

"Canon". The whole game is treated as just being a dream sequence, so it didn't really "happened".

Awesome seeing it actually being Yashiro, and that leaves me with;
My heart is screaming; SHERMIE :smitten:
But my nightmares are screaming; CHRIS ... :mcry:


(It's a contrast to me. I really love playing Shermie, but I really dislike Chris's moveset. Yashiro is awesome tho.)

Guess I'm not the only one who detests Chris.

The one who looks the closest to that silhouette is Maxima.

Haha no. Nothing sparkly fits my taste.
I just can't shake the feeling of staleness from this new character. Like, I wouldn't bet too much that she'll reappear in Tekken 8.

I've been playing Tekken since Tekken 4 and I think Tekken 7 is not that great of a game due to all the new characters ruining the balance.

Knee, Chikurin, JDCR and many of the professional Tekken players are commenting that Lidia looks borderline OP. Worse than Leroy.
This is because she shares many of his motions, launchers and even wall finishers with very safe frames. Her strings look easier too.
She's mostly anticipated to be one of the strongest characters of Tekken 7.

Also, aesthetically, I think Bamco could've done better.
She looks like a custom skin for another female character instead of looking like a standalone one.

Maybe she should've kept her suit as her base model, but rearrange it so that it's battle friendly like Lee Chaolan's clothes.
The current iteration looks way too mundane and don't get me started about the hair. Sheesh.

If I were to say, I think she just overall looks and feels too basic. Too standard. Too vanilla. "Karateka" is the most basic fighting game archetype and has already been done to death. It doesn't help that her whole character is just "I fight for my country", which in a series like Tekken is pretty underwhelming.

She's not bad, but she's not good either. She's just okay.

Showing a single character each week allows them to program the game at their own pace without worries while still keeping a steady income of news.

That's just Japan tho, pretty sure he's much more popular in the west. I for one would prefer him over Cham Cham, Mina or Iroha, who all seem to only be popular because fanservice.

If SNK keeps following the current pattern for reveals, this is how I predict will be the reveal schedule for the next weeks:

*24/03: Robert Garcia
*31/03: Either Clark, Kula or King
*07/04: Ryo Sakazaki
*14/04: Either Ralf, Maxima or Mai, depending on who we got on the 31
*21/04: another random character, unrelated to the characters from the 31 and 14
*28/04: Either Leona, K' or whoever is the last member of the Women team, again depending on who we got on the 31 and 14

So I guess next week they'll show Robert then show a random character before Ryo.

At least KOF XIII looked visually pleasing and one of the main reasons why it did so well was thanks to its clean aesthetics and smooth gameplay.

KoF XIII never did well. It (and by extension XII) was a financial disaster for SNK, they ran out of money while developing XII and had to release it in its obvious beta state just to be able to afford to finish the game. XIII took almost a decade to even pay itself, during which time SNK had to pump out pachinkos just to stay afloat.

Well, a character per week means four characters per month. By the end of March we'll only have seen 12 characters.

Its the same Chizuru as she's always been.

Seems her climax will work like that move Piccolo uses against #17 in DBZ.
