Do not wait for PN to feed your SNES with this new release, that you can preorder from Play-Asia: 

Most annoying fanboy ever

Guys, don´t support that kickstarter campaign.

First, it doesn´t look very good. Second: There are about 1500 pre-orders of this game for 60 bucks per copy. And NOW they open that strange campaign, stating they need more money for production if the game itself is fully developed now?

I pre-ordered the game myself for 60 bucks, but in that campaign, they charge only 35 for a complete game. I feel myself super pranked by these guys and the game itself doesn´t seem to be as good as we thought at first. I think they want to make some extra money for their pockets. Be careful!

I haven't invested yet, but plan to get the regular edition plus controller for $40, mostly because I'm in need of a second controller anyway.  I think the price is fair for a six man fighter, considering most other SNES games ask for $60 - $70.  I prefer Capcom over SNK, but SNK is a solid fighting game company.

I think these guys are strictly running a preorder campaign.  They must be making money on just running a huge batch.  $52500 / 1500 = $35.  Nothing more for themselves or controllers.  They don't even have extra for kickstarter fees.

As for Play-Asia..
They might have a different deal with them.  They might be selling for the same Kickstarter price and Play-Asia must be inflating the price so they too can make a buck.  I, however, only see $41 for price.  And the only difference I see between kickstarter and Play-Asia is NTSC vs NTSC J.

I think this campaign will struggle to get funding because of a few reasons. First, there's no PAL version.  Second, there's no  big ticket limited edition crap.  Third, because of the low cost, everyone who would ever buy this game has to buy it now for the campaign to succeed = not worth buying extra copies to flip.  And finally, this is a six man fighter.  If there's no Ken vs Ryu rivalry, the game could get old quick with only six characters.
