Well it's time to ruin another Japanese legacy (curse you American movie viewers that have no knowledge of video games or anime) . I hope they'll stuff balloons in Mai's costume since there's no way that anyone can be Mai without a big rack. At least the game will be good 8D..

Sean Farris, AKA Jake Tyler from NeverBackDown, is gonna be Kyo. At least the ladies have a reason to watch it now. Also, Darth Ma--I mean Ray Park[no, he's not Korean] is going to play an apparently young Rugal.

Meh, at least Iori is going to be asian.

Looking forward to it. KoF is really hard to make into an actual anything movie wise. I've seen the anime adaptation and that's like fail.

Let's look on the bright side. At least Uwe Boll isn't directing it! I didn't know you could use katana in DoA ;o

Every movie based on a fighting game has failed harder than most other video game adaptions. Silent Hill turned out okay, though. At least it didn't turn into some sci-fi action movie like Resident Evil did. But back on topic, <3 King of Fighters. The games, anyhow. I saw an OVA anime of it, too, but it was kind of...it seemed random or something. It featured the characters, but that was all I remembered from it.

actually it was wierd when they said kof have so much storylines.

The storylines barely have anything, it is just a typical fighting game storyline.

Fighting games into movies = fail
What they wear don't even match the actual game, double fail.

Actually, KoF has one of the most extensive story lines of any fighting game franchise. It centers around an anual tournament, but there was alot going on behind the scenes. Like the Orochi trilogy in KoF '94-'97. Then the Nests trilogy in '99-2001. '98 and 2002 don't really have a story to them, but 2003 started a new story with the return of the Orochi. I haven't played any others since then (unfortunately), so I don't really know where they went with that.

Even so, I'm guessing they're going to jam it all in; or even worse, use a sub par storyline, which always happens with these movies (Street Fighter the Movie anyone?)

it's not the viewers that make them. it's old people who think this stuff will make money. all these movies bomb and get made of fun by the viewers.
