I think that KI could be BIG in Japan. I hear that KI has a good community in Japan, and I think a way to bring in more fans is by having a couple Arcade Machines. Where players can not only play against each other, but also play am arcade mode similar to Season 1’s story mode with each character having an ending (and a few secret endings). I think this could be good for KI, making it the biggest American-Made fighting game in japan (Since Japan basically won’t localize Mortal Kombat).
The idea has been mentioned before and I think it is a really good idea. Since a SFV is console only, there is a huge opportunity for KI to attract Japanese arcade heads. Microsoft could design it’s own arcade hardware based on an Xbox One that registers credits and house it in a candy cab (preferably colored black).
