I remember before hearing about King Cobra who would have been yet another shoto
I remember hearing that he was supposed to be the rival of not only Ken but both Ken and Ryu. Does anyone know where there’s any translate info on him? Is it confirmed anywhere that he was supposed to be a rival of both Ryu and Ken? Any other info on him would be awesome.
There’s no indication anywhere that he would have been a shoto though. Any concept art of a potential Judoka would be “another shoto” in that case, so would a BJJ practitioner, Makoto is a shoto too by the same logic.
Looking over the 1-up article this guy could have actually been a pretty legit character potentially. What a waste.
I hope so too. Maybe by in the near future, if this character makes more rounds (BARELY anybody knows about king cobra) people can tell Ono or Capcom of Japan about it. This character has a wicked design and who knows he could be a shoto that isn’t like a shoto since he was the prototype for Rufus.
Also quite odd, vasili tells me in the concept art his name is King Cobra Kai. Like from Karate Kid. Kinda cheesy, but a nice “Karate” reference either way. Also someone mentioned C Viper’s concept name or project name was AGL, and she turned out being named C Viper, so perhaps Cobra Kai wasn’t going to be his real name. More a reference name.
Post this shit all over and get some people hype about it. Trying to get a PC skin mod of this guy. Too cool to pass up.
