The King of Fighters: Destiny CG Animated Series Announced

SNK has announced The King of Fighters: Destiny.

The new CG animated series is set to launch sometime this summer, and will clock in at 20 episodes. Featured above, you can view a teaser trailer for the series.

It’s worth mentioning the series is mostly being pushed in China (hence the kanji in the official assets), as the team responsible for the SFX in Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV are reportedly working on the series.

It’s not clear if The King of Fighters: Destiny will get released outside of China, however each voice actor has both a Chinese and a Japanese voice actor listed – leading us to believe a Japanese release is also planned.

The King of Fighters XIV is currently available for PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review for The King of Fighters XIV here (we highly recommend it!).

    Interesting, an anime would’ve been the obvious (and cheaper) choice. It being made by Kingsglaive’s SFX team bodes well for the animation quality.

  • Mr0303

    This looks pretty good. Kingsglaive was visually amazing, so it’s nice to hear that people from that team will work on the series. I’ll definitely give it a watch.

    I said it on youtube and I’ll say it here as well. This looks like Fatal Fury with Kyo shoehorned into it.

  • 2501

    Well i’m pretty hyped. Especially if Rugal or Orochi make an appearance, that would be entertaining.

  • Matz

    Or they’re just starting the history with the first canonical KOF Tournament

  • FailDRE86

    Which Kyo and Orochi still had no presence in.

  • Kamen Rider Rayz

    Hopefully this is something like KOF series with Sagas/Arcs from KOF94 to KOFXIV storylines!

    I think an anime would have actually been more expensive these days, unless its was a really shitty one

  • Envy Noson

    Wait, isn’t this just the story of Fatal Fury?

  • ProxyDoug

    Have you watched Gantz: O?

  • ProxyDoug

    Luckily, it will be better than Blood Vengeance.

  • Mr0303

    Nope. I remember seeing a trailer for it and it looked really nice. Is it any good?

  • ProxyDoug

    It’s fantastic. I highly recommend it.

  • Mr0303

    Cool. I’ll give it a watch.
