    Is this 3D game?

  2. Tekken says:

    I was master at KOF2006 that was 3D

  3. Nando says:

    No it’s not 3d. It’s 2d Pixel-drawn with loads of animation. Think Street Fighter 3. Blaz Blue looks nice in terms of the anime/color of the game, but KOF XII is animated better.

  4. Bone Breaker says:

    maybe too little and too late

  5. eckers says:
