Probably. Especially Mai.
If anything, I think the emulating crowd is the only group of gamers who knows about KoF, and they already have them all. They don't emulate knowing KoF, but they know KoF because they emulate.They had trouble selling them on the PS2/Wii @ $29.99 then $19.99, that was a 5 pack anthology, heck even the KOF98 Ultimate Match on the PS2 has trouble selling at $19.99 and it's a Naomi update of the most popular KOF game.
Maybe the older KOF games don't sell well because anyone who wants them can get them *illegally* via emulation, but still, even the Atomiswave *unemulated* SNK games don't sell well at 1/2 to 1/3rd the price...
