“The King of Fighters World” will launch first in China, Summer 2017.

There’s a new King of Fighters game on the horizon–however, it’s not another fighting title. SNK has announced plans to launch a new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, entitled The King of Fighters World. It will apparently be free-to-play (with additional paid content), and involve exploring the KOF game world, battling and puzzle-solving through a “profound” storyline.

It will be available for both Android and iOS devices, launching first in China, with the intention of expanding worldwide later. It might not be what every SNK fan burns to fight for, but it could be interesting for those that want to take some aspect of KOF on the go. Check out the teaser trailer below.
