While news about a new King of Fighters title has been making the rounds lately, it appears as if SNK Playmore will first be expanding their existing lineup to a new platform. Earlier tonight, the company provided a release schedule for a handful of upcoming titles, and two in particular are sure to excite old-school fans.
According to the table (included below), King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition and King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match will be heading to Steam sometime in November and December, respectively. As the former carries the relatively new “Final Edition” subtitle, which was added for the game’s 2010 NESiCAxLive port, one can assume that the latter will also be based off the most recent arcade iteration.
But, the best part of this news is that fans won’t have to settle for the smartphone release of King of Fighters ’98 Dream Match to get their fix of classic SNK action.
