SNK shared the big news at EVO 2023 that Fatal Fury will be returning for the first time since 1999 in the form of a new game called Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves.
This new Fatal Fury was first teased at EVO 2022 and this year’s tournament gave fans an early look at the game in action and an official title. While we didn’t learn too much about the game or when it will be released, the trailer did feature Terry Bogard and Rock Howard facing off against each other.

We also were given a glimpse of some of the locations we’ll be fighting in whenever Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves is released, and they were Geese Tower, National Park, South Town Airport, ??? [Abandoned Dojo], Live House “Old Line,” and Factory.
Various voices can be heard during the introduction of these locations, and some fans online, including @FGAnniversaries, believe some of those voices belong to Andy Bogard, Mai Shiranui, B. Jenet, Billy Kane, Marco (possibly Ryo), Hotaru Futaba, Tizoc, and Kain R. Heinlein.
We were given a teaser image at EVO 2022 that featured two silhouetted characters believed to be Billy Kane and Kain R. Heinlein, so this could be further confirmation that they will be part of this new entry.
Also known as the Garou series, the Fatal Fury franchise began all the way back in 1991 with Fatal Fury: King of Fighters on the Neo Geo. The last entry was 1999’s Garou: Mark of the Wolves, but many of the franchise’s characters have appeared in SNK’s King of Fighters series, including Terry and Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi.
