The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Delayed Until March

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

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.
