The King Of Fighters A New Beginning has a new chapter out. It covers Angel as well as Ramon and King Of Dinosaurs aka Team Mexico. I will go over it below and it will have spoilers so if you want to check out the chapter go ahead as translations are out now.
This chapter has us meeting team Mexico which consist of Ramon, King Of Dinosaurs and Angle. For the most part this is through Angle as she get flashes of Igniz and what she did after KOF 2001 while the team prepares for the next match.
They prepare as Ramon tries to get psyched only to find KOD is hyped but not Angle. This is because of Angle personality as just going with it. Although she is super human she is very much go with the flow in a sense. This only make it comical as she talks with her team as she deals with these flash of Igniz calling her a traitor. Now we don’t know if this is happening to the other so we will have to see.
Now we discussed this before that NEST is alive and it seems are trying to revive Igniz who if you played the game is one of the many people trapped inside Verse. We see they are waiting for him as they found a piece of Igniz cap which is reacting to Verse. This signals that Igniz soul is somehow caught up with the time warp entity. This may sound weird for a scientific organization to be talking about souls but you are a fan it doesn’t. The whole NEST saga began after they got Kyo DNA seeing it defeated a god they figured they can use it. This interest in rivaling gods with tech start the saga so to be entangled with it through tech only fits.
Now we see remnants all wear similar garbs to Igniz. This might be to show loyalty as once Igniz died many thought NEST was gone. In fact we didn’t think of them until KOF XIV where we have Verse give those from Nest a quote. As far as the manga goes being lore in the fact that they are back we will have to see how much. I saw this as SNK when it comes to manga based on games isn’t accurate. That was the past though. With Shonen they might just be aiming for that. Plus with Igniz back we know NEST will return to becoming the techno terrorist organization that existed in KOF. Now what the next chapter will bring is something to see as well as it seems they are about to activate the chips inside of them.
As always thank you for reading.
