Here is a translation of the Brazilian King of Fighters (KoF) fan project for Street Fighter RPG. Thank you to the original team of contributors, in particular Odmir Fortes and Eric “Musashi” Souza. This is a massive PDF, 184 pages, covering the many games in the extended setting and big timeline of The King of Fighters, including overviews and character sheets for The Orochi Saga, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Fatal Fury, Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldier.
KoF can easily fit in to the SFRPG setting. The first game in the KoF setting was Fatal Fury: King of Fighters, which was a rival game to Street Fighter 2, and as many fans know, SNK employed Takashi Nishiyama, who created the original Street Fighter game. The rivalry eventually led to the series of games: SNK vs. Capcom. So like other fighting games such as Tekken, Double Dragon, etc., we can at the very least draw ideas and characters from KoF to place in to SFRPG, to outright fusing the two together. This raises questions of ranking, since many of the KoF characters are of World Warriors standard. The King of Fighter Tournament would likely be a part of the normal Freestyle Division. Alternatively maybe with KoF having its focus on Southtown and South Town (yes that is a bit confusing) it could be considered a closed Fighting Circuit, requiring characters to either be located in the region. Another benefit of KoF is that it has all the same fighting game plot clichés that one would expect. So, it is also not hard to use KoF as a way to expand/explore SFRPG in to the more globally devastated settings, such as: Mortal Kombat, Darkstalkers, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear, TMNT, etc. This one supplement easily doubles the roster of veteran NPCs, so if only for this reason, check it out. 🙂
