Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 2 joins Sony’s holiday line up

By Spencer . November 8, 2007 . 6:53am

snkbattle2.jpgI love it when companies send lengthy release schedules because I get to peruse the titles and see if there are any surprises. Sony’s holiday schedule isn’t much on surprises, but Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 2 rears its head as a “holiday game”. Interesting. King of Fighters XI and NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, both of which have been confirmed for this year, somehow evade the list. I guess this entry means we’re going to see Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 2 sooner (this year?) rather than later.

 

The only brand new game on the list is Go! Sports Skydiving, a downloadable Playstation 3 game. Considering how miserable Go! Sports Ski was it’s hard to have faith in it even considering how few games there are about skydiving.

 

Check out the full list past the break.

    Hopefully this list isn’t final, as I would hate to see King of Fighters XI and Neo Geo Battle Coliseum delayed until next year, in a not too similar situation to World Heroes Gorgeous. I believe North America has waited long enough to finally get these 2D fighters confirmed for the States and having it oh so close to its grasps in retail stores across the globe, only to be letdown with a mere delay just when we thought the games were finally coming to out hands this fall.

    For as much as I’d like to get my hands on Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 2 for Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 alone (which up until this compilation has never received a home console port whatsoever), I would much rather prefer to witness KOF XI and Neo Geo Battle Coliseum see release first, these two fighters truly deserve it. As mentioned above, if I were SNK I would put a little more incentive in publishing those titles first and foremost above all others simply because of the strong fan demand surrounding their release.
