City of the Wolves and everything that has us excited from the demo preview

Thanks to SNK, I was recently just able to spend over two hours going hands-on with Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves at a preview event grinding matches and testing out what’s possible.

Now that I’m back, I sat down with our resident SNK super fan Nicholas ‘MajinTenshinhan’ Taylor to discuss the exciting parts about the return of Terry Bogard, Rock Howard and the crew after 25 years as well as show off some actual match footage.

There’s obviously a lot to say about the brand new REV System in Fatal Fury, including how SNK seems to have taken a few pages from Capcom with Street Fighter 6’s Drive System — though CotW still has more than enough to make it stand out from the competition.

REV Accel opens up totally new doors to combo extensions and utility with the ability to chain together multiple EX specials (known as REV Arts) in one go, but what got me almost just as excited was the REV Guard system too.

In general, Fatal Fury has just as many defensive options as it has offensive ones, which creates a push and pull feel that is fast without being overwhelming.

We’ve also got match footage of course provided to us included with our discussion that shows off Terry, Rock, Hotaru Futaba, Tizoc and newcomer Preecha in action along with the health bars to see how much damage they can do as well as how the mechanics / gameplay interacts with the REV Meter.

More coverage for the successor to Garou: Mark of the Wolves is on the way in the coming days including exclusive interviews with Fatal Fury Producer Yasuyuki Oda and Director Hayato Konya plus more information on the game.

Check out our new video below to hear MajinTenshinhan and myself talk about what has us excited about City of the Wolves, and you can read a more in-depth breakdown of the mechanics and systems in my hands-on impressions with Fatal Fury here.
