Further to the update I posted below, I just noticed on Play-Asia.com that they are now taking pre-orders for KOF '98 UM and they currently have the same date listed (June 26th). I think I might just place a pre-order soon! :)
According to The Magic Box, The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match for the Playstation 2 will be released this coming June in Japan:
"SNK Playmore announced a PS2 port of the arcade fighting game The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match will be released in Japan on June 26, 2008, the game will have online battle support."
Bear in mind that this is not officially confirmed yet, but if true, it's good news and earlier than we might have excpected. I'm really looking forward to this one and it'll give me a reason to blow the dust of the old PS2. More news when we hear anything.
Second review of the day. One-Fu has submitted another review, this time of the often overlooked one on one fighter, Double Dragon. Not a side scroller like its predecessors, it's a very fun game all the same and surprisngly good considering it is very loosely based on the dreadful live action flick of the same name.
Thanks to One-Fu for once again sending in another great review. Don't miss Kurisu's review of Andro Dunos from earlier on today.
I have uploaded a new review of the Neo Geo shoot 'em up game, Andro Dunos! It's an older game, from 1992 in fact, but it's worth checking out if you are a fan of the genre. I do like shoot 'em ups but I must admit I wasn;t a big fan of this one; this review shines a much more positive light on it however... I should probably give it another try I guess!
Many thanks to Kurisu for writing and submitting the review. I have another review from someone else to post too, so check back in a little while.
Sorry that we didn't manage to get a GotW up for last week, I was a little busy so I didn't get round to putting a thread together. Here's a new game for this week, and in my opinion it's a GREAT one!
You may or may not agree with me on that, so come and discuss the game with us! If this is a game you haven't tried before then I highly recommend checking out the media we have online for the game and reading my in-depth review. Also, don't forget to vote on the game using the poll to the right! -->
