SNK pins down new King of Fighters release date

Latest installment in long-running 3-on-3 fighting series set to come out swinging on Xbox.

by

King of Fighters NeoWave was originally planned for a November 2005 release on the Xbox, but the holiday season came and went without so much as a single Orochi under the tree for KOF fans. The game is still on the way, however; SNK Playmore today announced that the Xbox Live-enabled brawler should hit stores in March. A port of the first King of Fighters game to be built off Sammy's Atomiswave arcade hardware instead of the original SNK NeoGeo system, NeoWave features 43 characters in the series' trademark 3-on-3 fighting format and adds a number of gameplay tweaks to the mix, including the health-for-power trade-off "Heat Mode."

Hyperblade - This game is for a hardcore niche, not for mainstreamers like you who are concerned about how a game sells.

Ps2 shuns most 2d fighting games. The only ones that have really made it to the united states is the guilty gear series, and kof 2000/2001

Bout time. I've been waiting for this game for what seems like forever. SNK needs to start hitting their release dates. They are always late.
