kofumThe Tokyo Game Show 2008 game list is up and it’s leaking bits of information. One revelation is The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match will be released as a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade game sometime in the future. (See page seven.) SNK Playmore just packaged The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match as a retail PlayStation 2 game in Japan in June. We’re supposed to get sometime in 2009. This remake of the King of Fighters ’98 has a healthy dose of extra characters and balance changes for top tier players.

 

No price or details have been announced, but it’s pretty much expected that the Xbox 360 release will be modified for online play. Oh, and we’re still waiting for the Xbox Live Arcade version of Samurai Shodown 2 too which is not listed to appear at SNK’s booth.

    if they put vaseline on the lens like they did with their other games, i’m gonna have to pass yet again. i really would happily buy it if, but without a crisp image, i can’t be bothered.

    I’ll wait for the Wii Virtual Console release.
