The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Delayed Until March

image At one point I was psyched to see Ignition Entertainment pick up the King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match. Like SNK’s other PS2 games it’s not going to cost an arm and a leg here. Many retailers are selling it for $19.99. Not a bad deal at all. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait until March 3 to take it.


Ignition quietly updated their website and changed the release date from January something to March 3. That’s nice to know, but at this point I’ll just wait for the Xbox Live Arcade port which is also coming out next year with online play. Poor Ignition is really getting burned by SNK with Xbox Live Arcade versions of the King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match and Metal Slug 7 on the horizon.

    Docomodake looks like a fun game.
    Wouldn’t mind seeing an Eringa game either.

    As long as they don’t let Terminal Reality get their dirty hands on the game, it’s all good.

  • Let’s see. Xbox 360, bad 2d graphics on lcd screen, worst controller for fighting games, and lag online gameplay? Surely I prefer the ps2 version than pay for an single file with so many problems. Sorry Spencer but you are very wrong
