Slowly but surely SNK has been announcing plans to port more of its classic fighting games to modern consoles. The most recent of these, the Last Blade 2, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita on May. Hot on its heels is another classic SNK fighter from the turn of the millennium.

The latest edition of the PlayStation Blogcast has revealed that the King of Fighters 2000 will be coming to PlayStation 4 in North America on May 3. Specifically, the PlayStation 2 version of the game will be coming to the console as a PS2 Classic title.

King of Fighters 2000 is most notable for the introduction of the Active Striker system. This system allows players to select a fourth character for their team who’s only job was to act as an assist. On a more somber note, the title was also the last King of Fighters game released by the original SNK before its bankruptcy.
