I quite dont like teh 3D backdrops. If you say KOF2k1 was to have 3D backdrops I presume it was being planned as a NAOMI game... but I doubt it. MS4 has been denied and I dunno about KOF2k1.
You know teh ammount of games they canned for the NGPC? Among them, KOF R3 and Garou... what a shame
BTW, Yes Shatterhand, the speed has been decreased IMO. I play it in my P133 and it goes FASTER than in the real thing. Try it out!
