KOF 2003 beta testing

TOKYO--SNK NeoGeo will the begin beta testing of The King of Fighters 2003 one month before its release. Announced on the company's official Web site, the beta test of King of Fighters 2003 will take place in Osaka, Japan, between November 17 and 21. The beta test is expected to move to Tokyo shortly thereafter.

The King of Fighters 2003 will be the tenth installment in the King of Fighters series, and will be following the traditional three-on-three battle format. Currently, only three characters are confirmed for the game. Terry Bogard and Joe Higashi from the Fatal Fury series will be returning to the game, and Andy Bogard will be replaced by Tizoc from Garou: Mark of the Wolves.

As reported earlier, while recent The King of Fighters titles have introduced original characters to the series, The King of Fighters 2003 will focus on bringing in characters from other Neo Geo titles--and the storyline of the game will reportedly go in a new direction. And while specific details are not currently known, The King of Fighters 2003 will reportedly implement a new battle system and new game control system. The King of Fighters 2003 is scheduled for release in Japanese arcades this December.
While I'm super pissed that Andy is gone and some retarded character is brought in his place, I'm VERY interested in this new control scheme. This is definately going back to the classic KOF games 98 and back, where each game felt much different to the last, unlike the retarded lot we've had for the past few years. Its also the 10th so it should be a big change with luck. And if you ask me this will be the last one to use the neogeo hardware. Thats just a guess.
