The King of Fighters: Destiny’s first season has wrapped up in China and iDragons Creative Studio announced that the CG animated series will get two more seasons and a movie later on.
The story starts with Fatal Fury and “KOF94” and goes until the end of “KOF97”. The animation is expected to be made in three seasons, ending in the form of a big movie.
During an era when people didn’t have much to keep themselves entertained, KOF games became the trusted companion of a generation. Today’s King of Fighters is not only a game, but a symbol of childhood. This official animation makes up for the regrettable lack of one in the past, and I know it would definitely bring up fond memories in people’s minds! Currently, rights to the first season have been developed by Yinhan Games, and the animation will be distributed by Tencent Games. Other related commercial co-operations are also underway — welcome all on board!
That means The King of Fighters: Destiny will take us through the Orochi saga from The King of Fighters ‘94 to The King of Fighters ‘97, and will wrap things up with a movie.
