Last week SNK celebrated Art of Fighting's 30th anniversary. This particular fighter was first released for Neo Geo and arcades in September 1992. It helped pave the way for the genre and eventually got a second game (1994) and third game (1996).
SNK shared this special occasion by sharing a new drawing by SNK illustrator Tomohiro Nakata:
If you're at all interested in visiting Art of Fighting to celebrate its 30th anniversary, you can check it out via the Nintendo Switch eShop. It was made available in 2017 as part of Hamster's Arcade Archives collection.
In related news, SNK today announced characters from the Samurai Shodown game would be joining The King of Fighters XV as DLC characters. "Team Samurai" will be comprised of Haohmaru, Nakoruru and Darli Dagger (thanks, Gematsu).
