And I wish SNK would do more to promote it, but they seem way more keen on advertising for the reboot. This is something truly magnificent. There was a crappy port of this game released on GOG a few years ago from DotEmu who are infamous for their shit ports of good arcade games, but everything was recently rebuilt from the ground up by Codemystics. This port implements some very pristine rollback netcode, and I've yet to experience any online hiccups. Input delay is simply not an issue here. Everything looks and plays perfectly. SNK fighting games are the bee's knees.

Can't quite say. This has basically served as my introduction to the series.

Yeah, all i hear about this port is praise and more praise, this game totally deserved this treatment since is one of snk's finest.

BTW, would be an awesome idea to submit subs to the official tutorial

Tangential, but me and Esper are dabbling with fixing Last Blade 2's 'translation'. Anyone familiar with what kind of encryption these games use?
