At EVO 2022, SNK finally announced a new Fatal Fury game, bringing to an end a 23-year-wait for fans of the series.

The last entry in the series, which features the baseball cap-wearing Terry Bogard as its lead protagonist, was 1999's Garou: Mark of the Wolves, a game that was later released as Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves on Dreamcast.

At the turn of the century, SNK attempted to make a sequel to this title, called Garou: Mark of the Wolves 2, but this was unfortunately nixed when SNK went bankrupt. In the intervening years, there have been some rumblings about the possibility of a sequel, especially after SNK started to re-establish itself in the gaming space, but this reached a fever pitch last month when the SNK producer and director Yasayuki Oda took to Twitter to express interest in finishing the Garou story.

Now it seems all those rumblings had some substance behind them, with SNK confirming it is working on a new title.

The Fatal Fury series started way back in 1991 with the release of Fatal Fury: King of Fighters, developed by SNK for the Neo Geo. It was one of a special group of fighting games, including Street Fighter II, which helped the genre explode in popularity in the early 90s and inevitably led to sequels, including Fatal Fury 2 and Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory, to name but a few. Currently not much is known about this latest title, but you can watch the teaser of the game below:
