I want a decent new entry into the series so bad. VI and Sen can fuck right off.
Unfortunately, you'd get only VII and Sen II. They should loan out the license to a capable indie team and do a spin off, like a Shinobi style game.
Knowing current market trends and the state of SNK, we'll get a visual novel mobile game centered around bringing Cham Cham out of the jungle and updating her look for modern Japan.
For real though, I'd take a 2.5D entry into the series as long as the gameplay is there.
"B-b-b-but Cham Cham-san, y-y-y-you can't bath n-na-naked in the fountain! Where are your knickers?!" oWo
I hear you. Although I really wouldn't mind an action spin-off, I wonder which approach they could realistically take at this point in the franchise for an updated mainline sequel though...
A. Re-use old sprites to produce a new numbered entry (i.e. SS VI)
B. Use kof xiv engine/assets for another 2.5D fighter (i.e. SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy)
C. Produce a 3D Bushido Blade-style arena fighter highlighting quick kills rather than combos
D. Hire an external studio like Netherealm to produce a Mortal Kombat X-style reboot violence fest and heavily market it to the west
Perhaps B or even C seem the most likely these days, but time will tell which direction SNK chooses to move in.
