I approach Geese Howard for a loving embrace, my heart thumping intensely. As he leans his face into my ear, I blush. He whispers "predictabo". I get flipped and break my spine.

'Why isn't there a King of Fighters for boys, huh?' - Some dude on Twitter right now, probably

That name is straight garbage.

Came into the thread thinking there's no way that's the actual name. Huh.

Super excited for when they add the main character to the mainline game like they did with the pachinko girls

Edit: Iori would probably play this game.

For what it's worth, 'otome' more or less translates to 'girl game'.
Yeah but genre names have always been shit.

That does not excuse to say you have a shit name if you put metroidvania in the name of your metroidvania =P
...and that is ignoring ALL THE OTHER IMPLICATIONS of the name.

But it is present day SNK so I don't know why I expected better

I get the idea, but they could've come up with a better name. "The King of Fighters: Ikemen" or something like that I guess. Though I see there are 2 (or 1) female characters, so maybe they were considering lesbians and bisexual girls as well?
Edit: Oh nvm, you play as that woman. Lol well, my suggested title might've been better, right?

Nah, shoehorning a whole sex into a genre has never been a good thing. And in extension of that, neither is writing male gay relationship stories catering to the fetish of some members of that sex. I just thought the post was asking a funny question the literal translation of the genre considered. 'For girls' shouldn't stop him.

Weird that they just needed to use the old "Days of memories" and not do a new IP, its a estabilished brand and you dont need to focus just on KOF lol.

Who is the new blonde guy? Dont tell me its "young geese"...
