"The SNK booth is usually crammed with our fans at E3," commented Ben Herman, SNK Playmore USA Corporation president. "With the added excitement of Falcoon signing his limited edition Mai posters for fans, I expect our booth to experience the largest turnout ever to both play our games and to get each of the posters.
