While there have been rumors that Harada has been in meetings with the likes of Arc System Works (and he’s certainly been close to them, lately), the reveal ended up being a partnership with another big name fighting game company: SNK.
South Town’s biggest boss, Geese Howard, will be slugging it out with the Tekken cast and Akuma (hey, it’s the world’s tiniest version of Capcom vs SNK!) in Winter 2017. Get practicing your pretzel inputs in readiness.
