SNKPlaymore has announced their first release on the Atomiswave hardware as the latest release in "The King Of Fighters" series. Sammy has revealed that their project with Capcom will be "Sammy vs. Capcom". No details on either titles are available as of yet. The KOF for the Atomiswave is currently in development and scheduled for release in spring of 2004, while Sammy vs. Capcom is yet to go into production...[/quote]

I'm not certain if it will be titled 2004. some say it will use a new numbering system.

Sammy vs. Capcom will be jointly developed by both companies.

(Capcom has said they are just getting use to the hardware.)

SNK Playmore has updated their game release schedule for the Japanese market:
Metal Slug 5 (Neo Geo) - Feb 19, 2004

While i'm not that hyped for a sony based arcade board, i hope it works out better than the neogeo 64 did.

I'd say this is a step in the right direction. And Capcom can learn a lesson from Sammy. Finally, we may be seeing fighters with more high-resolution graphics along the lines of GGXX.

I've never actually seen a Neo-Geo console either, but there was a Neo-Geo console. Why do you think NeoRAGEx and other emulators let you change between Arcade and Console Mode emulation?
