KOF-i - New Stage

Saw this over on DreamCancel's forums, apparently the update is available (i think only in Japan, as my version isn't giving me an update yet) for KOF-i, which adds the Yagami and Elisabeth Teams as well as a new stage.

I'm reading that this stage is based on Takuma's stage from the first Art of Fighting game, and note the cameo appearance from Shiki in the background.

Speculation on forums at the moment is that the last two DLC characters will be EX Kyo and Mr.Karate, though personally i would still like to see EX Raiden with four dropkicks. :(

[Edit]: The KOF-i Facebook page has just updated with these bits of information:
SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION is proud to announce the worldwide release of free additional content for “THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i” on iPhone / iPod touch from September 9th, 2011!!
Via this free additional content, “Iori Yagami”, “Mature”, “Vice”, “Elisabeth Blanctorche", “Shen Woo”, and “Duo Lon” join the original cast of 14 characters in “THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i” for a total of 20 fighters available! These 6 new entries will increase the number of possible teams, allowing you to create a lineup that suits your fighting strategy!


  1. Publishing ahead of time the update is a good move.... The problem is the content; this will not fulfill a purpose of "advertising" the console game if the update doesn't have anything that's not only found in the new version.

    ..... A single stage is not "new enough" to get our blood pumping, flaming Iori would have been a good bonus.

  2. I was kinda hoping they would have gone for Flame Iori as well, but possibly they want it to be completely console DLC exclusive.

    I'm downloading it now but it's taking longer than i expected due to not enough space on my iPod =_=
