Strange Chinese fighting title [Xuandou Zhiwang?]

Just got linked to this somewhere else, and I was wondering if anyone knew more about this.

A lot of aesthetic aspects seem ripped off from KoF pretty hard, but the gameplay seems...competent? And for some reason the visuals intrigue me and I want to see them in full quality.

    Lazy rendering. And why animation is "so poor"? Attacks looks like static pictures (but intros\win\idle poses looks very smooth).

    But real talk, I saw about 8 different KOF fighters between the character's animations.

    Strange because it looks surprisingly good for a Chinese bootleg KoF.

    I'm living in China, I'll see if I can get some input from people, my Chinese sucks so I'm of no help, but I know people.

    Honestly, this game looks good to me. I'd like to try it out myself.

    Searching the game title in Chinese characters yielded some news articles on it, with character art and direct screens.

    I like the designs, even if they're cribbed pretty wholesale from KoF.

    From what I can gather, here's the name of the game:

    Xuandou Zhiwang

    Making sense of the title is not my forte:
    Xuan - To boast
    dou - Fight
    Zhi - is like an ambiguous pronoun, so it can mean him/her/it
    Wang - Monarch/King

    So I would assume a paraphrased English translation of the title would be something like: Boastful Fighting King.

    I agree that it looks like a LOT of borrowed concepts. And honestly, China is so hard up on KOF that I'm not surprised that the nation's VG developers best attempt at a legit fighter title looks strikingly similar to KOF. The influence is there, but I think this game looks pretty good.

    I say stop judging it on appearances. Most every new fighter out now is a clone of a clone now.

    I think there's a stark difference from a strong influence and nearly ripping another game's aesthetics.

    Also to me the sprites look very weird for some reason, but I can't place my finger on it.

    They seem to be pre-rendered cel shaded models, in the same vein of Chaos Breaker or Capoeira Fighter 3, albeit it looks like much higher quality and a nicer end result.

    Yes, definitely not an arcade release, and consoles are banned in China. PC for sure.

    Ok, reading on the gameplay video, it is the first look at the demo version of the game, or beta, somewhere between demo and beta for sure.

    A lot of the comments on Sohu say the same things we're saying here: "Isn't this a ripoff of KOF/SF?" "No way this can compete with KOF or be better than it." "This isn't KOF?" "This game is useless, nothing more than a clone"

    Then you also got the people hyped for this game despite that, "Looks good, can't wait." "Looks like KOF, but very creative"

    I think it may be developed by Tencent, pretty much a tech giant in China. Don't know how easy it would be to get a copy for people outside of China, but I'll keep my eye on this.

    Yep, produced by Tencent. Thanks for the link.

    I want to pick up this title. I also think that if it's produced by Tencent, that there will undoubtedly be online play available. I have never bought a game from them, and don't know how their netplay works, so I cannot tell you any further. I'm sure it will be good for me being over here (Wabars will end up with this game, and hardcore players will have it on their home computers) to find matches, but outside of China? Up to you guys.

    So this "Tencent" guys are some kind of social network? if so, if i'm a gringo/latin scum there is a problem with that? sounds like i will need some kind of subscription in order to play this right?, this will have a region-lock thing?

    I'm not sure about a subscription. Tencent pretty much runs online networking, save for Renren (I think) over here. Tencent produces the most popular IM client in China (QQ) and also runs a Microblogging service that's in competition with another one over here (Weibo).

    There might be paid services needed for online play, but I don't know, I'll have to nose around later, but paying for this game is a definite yes, obviously.

    You can get a QQ account, which is pretty much needed for getting this game in the first place. There's an international version of QQ (Don't know if there's limitations on your account if you sign up for an international version), but there are no restrictions on foreigners from signing up to use basic QQ services at the very least. For gaming and stuff, I'll have to thumb around, but we'll see.

    Game Looks pretty damn cool.

    edit:

    But whatever, gameplay looks sick and hell I would like to try it out.

    Looks cool to me, even if it's kinda ripping off KOF. The sprints look really good to me. Just looks clean. I hope I get a chance to play this someday.

    Banned is a really harsh word.

    I know you know what's up, but just in case other people reading this don't understand the situation: consoles aren't officially licensed/supported/distributed here, but in practice you can find them all over the place.

    Just to warn you all about QQ:

    Installing QQ is basically like agreeing to install spyware on your comp. I won't touch that shit with a 10-foot pole.

    Say word? I never had a problem with QQ in the last two years but, I trust you more than myself.

    Ok, probably not the proper wording, but let's just say that sales of consoles are in the grey area. Basically, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are locked out of distributing consoles in China. Consoles over here are brought in from other areas, and from what I've been told, Xbox 360s are instantly modded for pirated games when they arrive here.

    As for QQ, I haven't had any troubles with Spyware either. Bloatware on the most recent version? Yes. There are so many different pieces of additional Tencent software in that pack that it's ridiculous.

    But I've had no red flags raised on the international version at all.

    It looks great for a KOF clone, I like that the 3D models still fight like sprites and the characters designs are decent for KOF knock offs.

    Supers seem to be umm extremely powerful, I saw him take a round like 3 seconds in? It's a very fast game.

    I would say Not-Athena has smaller eyes than the real one.
