Neo G, one of the main combat designers for games such as Marvel .vs Capcom 2, Tatsunoko .vs Capcom, Marvel .vs Capcom 3, SFIII: Third Strike, and a lot more, plus others Capcom game's such as Devil May Cry 4 (he left Capcom in 2016), has left SNK. Key designer in the recent reboot of the Samurai Showdown series, he admits that he has nothing to do with the Day-1 DLC patch that integrates new characters

Such a brilliant man, whish him the best!

Why is he leaving?
A man of such talent. Grateful for what he has done, most recenty for the new Samurai Shodown game which looks amazing.

I don't know japanese, but i'll ask him, maybe he can reply in english? :P. Anyway, i hope someday he goes back to Capcom and do either Marvel .vs Capcom 4, or Capcom .vs SNK 3!

CAPCOM PRESENTS

MARVEL COMICS

MARVEL VS CAPCOM 4 : WE'RE BACK BAYBEE

On a more serious note, he's a legend. Marvel vs Capcom 3 wouldn't be that good without him. I hope everything will be alright for him.

Thread title made me go "Oh no, what happened!?" but then I saw that he is going to compete and... dude is probably pretty happy with his work so it's fine.

This feels so weird, he only got to work on two fighting games (three, if you count SNK Heroines), and it's barely been three years since he started working at SNK. You would think with Samurai Shodown having not even released yet, he would want to stick around at least a little bit longer.

It's cool that he'll be competing in tournaments, but I do wonder who he'll work for next. The only people that really make 2D fighters any more are Capcom and Arc System Works, and he already worked at and left the former.

I doubt him competing at EVO is a serious thing. It's probably more just for fun. I'd be surprised if he doesn't already have another company/project lined up.

God, what a resume, wish we could find out why he left. Good luck to his future endeavors.

Fantastic resume. Would like to see what he could do at a startup type company with alot more creative freedom.

Aww. Really was hoping he would've headed up some new IP at SNK, next (which SNK sorely needs).

But wherever he goes next, I'll be keeping an eye out.
