SNK confirms new Fatal Fury game at EVO 2022

Aki "Tonko" Senno's return is good news for Fatal Fury fans as her work on the original 1999 game is widely credited for its enduring popularity.

The first Smash-less Evolution Championship Series tournament took place from August 5-7 and was a success. On top of the exciting and close games that professionals played over the weekend, companies in attendance also took the opportunity to announce their upcoming fighting games.

We're happy that SNK is finally giving Fatal Fury the time of the day with a new installment.

SNK, in particular, confirmed that it is working on a new Fatal Fury installment. This could very well be the Unreal Engine game that it confirmed earlier this year.

You can only imagine the excitement among fighting game fans after finding out about the all-new Fatal Fury game. After all, the last Fatal Fury game came out in 1999, which itself was a huge experiment that brought a bunch of new faces and a redesigned Terry Bogard.

Unfortunately, SNK dashed the hopes of fans in an instant after showing only a single piece of art for the new Fatal Fury game.

We're hoping that we don't have to wait too long to find out more about the new Fatal Fury game.

It's been a long time coming for Terry and other Fatal Fury characters. The cast of Fatal Fury have been favorites in the countless other games that they've appeared in, including Super Smash Bros. and The King of Fighters for Girls. It only makes sense for SNK to go back to one of their proven fighting game franchises.

But, without a release date and even a proper trailer, we can only assume that the next Fatal Fury project is still very early in its development.

If it's any consolation, the Fatal Fury art featured the signature of Aki "Tonko" Senno. The long-time SNK artist has lent her creative talents to several SNK games such as Last Blade, King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, and Metal Gear. Tonko's involvement suggests that SNK's latest project will look beautiful.

In the meantime, you can keep yourself busy with our roundup of the best fighting games in the world right now. We're probably overdue an update to the list. We'll get to it as soon as we get our hands on Street Fighter 6 next year.
