There was a point in time when the gaming community considered SNK an afterthought.

However, in recent years, the vintage company appears to have regained its footing after subsequent successful releases.

But, it appears that SNK isn't just done with its resurgence just yet.

After using Unreal Engine for its most recent games, SNK just teased an "unnamed new title" using the same game engine.

Long-time SNK employee and the producer of The King of Fighters XV, Yasuyuki Oda, confirmed that SNK is "testing a new game in the works that will be using Unreal Engine."

Meanwhile, SNK's Lead Engineer, Masanori Tsujii, added that he's excited about the potential of Unreal Engine 5.

Unfortunately, SNK made no mention about what kind of game the unnamed project will be and if it's going to be a new IP or the next installment of its other beloved franchises.

The good news here is that the tease suggests that SNK is ready to announce the game soon.
