Including the 3 newbies
Due out this summer, Samurai Shodown on PlayStation 4 will have 16 playable characters at launch, and you can see every one of them in the game's latest trailer. The three new challengers, Darli Dagger, Wu-Ruixiang, and Yashamaru Kurama, all look pretty cool. Are you hyped for the return of Samurai Shodown? Try not to spill...
Bundles six games
Here’s an announcement that will at the very least excite Nintendo Life editor Damien McFerran (we think): Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection is coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. A compilation with online play incorporated by Digital Eclipse, the package will bundle together the following six titles: Samurai...
Ready your blade
Announced as a main game for Evo 2019, which takes place in August, we already knew that Samurai Shodown would have to launch a decent amount of time before the big event. The good news is that seems to be the case, as SNK has slapped a June release window on the upcoming PlayStation 4 instalment. This should give players at least...
A delicious selection box of ancient gems and curios
Have you ever played a game from your youth, ready to relive those glory days with rose-tinted glasses firmly in place? Ever rip those rosy specs off and throw them against the wall in a fit of rage shortly after? Some retro "classics" just don’t stand the test of time and others are designed...
That's the spirit
The release window for the new Samurai Shodown game coming to PS4 just got a little less vague. The title is now due to arrive in "early Summer", and it's getting a simultaneous worldwide launch. What's more, SNK's released a new gameplay trailer. It's a short one, clocking in at just under a minute, but it gives you some idea of...
We'd almost forgot about the new Samurai Shodown game that SNK has in development. Announced as Samurai Spirits back in September, the game was quickly confirmed for a PlayStation 4 release in 2019 -- and now we have a more specific time frame courtesy of the publisher's latest investor meeting. SNK is aiming for the second quarter of next...
Uses Unreal Engine 4
SNK has announced a brand new Samurai Shodown game built using Unreal Engine 4. Its working title is Samurai Spirits, as that's the name of the series in Japan. It's due to slice open PlayStation 4 at some point next year. All we have to go on right now is the brief announcement trailer that we've embedded above, but...
Terry Bogard – the number one hatted husbando of Fatal Fury fame – is about to become your new waifu, as the blonde bombshell busts her (?) way into SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy. That’s right, tucked up Tel is the latest fighter to join the all-girl roster, and she’s brought some glittery attacks and a few teddy bears with her...
Same day as Spider-Man
Good luck, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy – you’re officially launching on the same day as Spider-Man. We suppose there’s not a whole lot of crossover between Peter Parker and scantily clad SNK characters, but 7th September doesn’t look like a great release date right now, as we discussed in a recent Ta
SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy was announced back in January, and it immediately attracted some attention for its, er, unique approach to being a fighting game. Featuring female combatants from across the SNK universe, we wanted to find out a little more about this upcoming brawler, so we exchanged some quickfire questions with the team...
Will you KoF up for it?
In news that could only truly excite editorial director Damien McFerran, SNK has announced The King of Fighters ’97 Global Match. Despite the name, it’s scheduled to release in 2018 – sometime in the Spring, to be more precise. It's due out on the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. As alluded, the headline new addition to this...
If you’re all about girl-on-girl, then the newly announced SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy may catch your eye. Due out on the PlayStation 4 this summer, the title sees SNK’s “iconic” heroines duking it out without a single sausage in sight. It’s a two-on-two fighter, but it sounds like it’s going to be a fairly accessible...
Harada's back for more
Geese Howard's coming to Tekken 7 later this year, in case you haven't heard. The Fatal Fury and King of Fighters character was revealed at Evo 2017, where the guest fighter got his own gameplay trailer. That same footage is present here, but Bandai Namco has bookended it with a dumb skit featuring Tekken director Katsuhiro...
Bloody good fun
SNK has announced that Samurai Shodown V Special is heading to both PlayStation 4 and Vita at some point this summer. Initially released in Japanese arcades in 2004, Samurai Shodown V is widely regarded as one of the best entries in the series. The fighter will be reappearing on Sony's current-gen console and handheld in its...
Keep on fighting
For a long time before The King of Fighters XIV launched, there was a lot of controversy surrounding the sequel's shift from 2D to 3D visuals. Previously, the series had prided itself on pristine sprite work, but with the fourteenth entry, developer SNK decided that it was going to dip its toes into the world of 3D modelling...
While Capcom is rightly credited as the company which kick-started interest in the one-on-one fighting genre, there's another firm which built up comparable reputation in the field and – some would passionately argue – actually managed to trump the creator of Street Fighter on more than one occasion. SNK would become a household...
Return of the king
Some of us here at Push Square are looking forward to King of Fighters XIV. Honest. Which is lucky, given that a playable demo landed on the PlayStation Store yesterday, giving us a chance to try out this somewhat divisive entry in the series – and we're happy to report that the title shows great promise. But first, let's...
Plus, antagonist Antonov announced
Y'know what? Fair play to SNK – it's really working hard to make sure that everyone gives The King of Fighters XIV a shot. While the publisher may not have Street Fighter's brand power or Mortal Kombat's marketing budget, it's doing everything that it can to get the game in front of fighting game fans. Take...
SNK working in collaboration with Sony on port
Neo Geo classic Garou: Mark of the Wolves is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita, publisher SNK has announced. The title – which is being ported in collaboration with Sony's third-party productions team – originally released in Japanese arcades all the way back in 1999, and was eventually ported...
Bogard to beat
If you're not quite as hyped for The King of Fighters XIV as some of our forum members, then worry not: SNK's going to try and win you over starting next week with a free demo for the forthcoming fighter. The sampler – available in North America and Europe from 19th July – will include access to seven of the playable characters...
There's been a steady trickle of PlayStation 2 titles launching on the PlayStation 4 since Sony rolled out its PS2 Classics initiative, and it looks like Metal Slug Anthology will be next up if the PlayStation Blogcast is to be believed. As is the case with all of these emulated outings, you can expect upscaled 1080p presentation and...
A long awaited post
It's not that we've spent about six months ignoring The King of Fighters XIV, it's just… Well, we've spent about six months ignoring The King of Fighters XIV. It's not like we've got anything against the legendary SNK series – this author has certainly enjoyed previous entries – but we can't shake the feeling that this...
Mai to go
Who says we don't write about The King of Fighters here? Everyone in this thread for starters. Here's news that should sate the vocal minority, though: The King of Fighters 2000 is coming to the PlayStation 4 as an enhanced PlayStation 2 classic next week – well, in North America at least. These re-releases have generally
Atlus has announced that it has delayed the King Of Fighters XIII's upcoming "NESTS Kyo" character DLC pack, citing a remarkably vague "technical error" as the reason for the delay
The downloadable extension was originally intended for a December 20th release, but will now drop on January 10th. In order to make up for the delay, the DLC's price will be cut to $2.99 for a limited period upon launch..
Rising Star Games has confirmed that King Of Fighters XIII will release in the UK on November 25th
The game was originally due out in October, but was pushed earlier in the month. Those that pre-order the game will receive a limited edition four CD soundtrack taken from the history of the series. A double-sided A3 poster and digital art disc will also be included.
Fans of the King Of Fighters series will want to make sure they pre-order a copy of the upcoming King Of Fighters XIII in the UK
Publisher Rising Star has announced that all pre-orders will come with a four CD soundtrack spanning the history of the series. The incentive comes in addition to the retail product's variety of goodies, including the game, double-sided poster, digital art-disc and..
In an email sent out to its "Faithful" mailing list, Atlus revealed plans to localise SNK's PlayStation 3 brawler, King Of Fighters XIII, for Noth American release this "holiday"
The game was originally released last year in Japan, and includes over 30 characters from the SNK fighting dynasty. Don't worry guys, Mai is included. The sequel promises a "rebuilt online mode" for enhanced..
SNK's confirmed they're bringing the NEOGEO Station to the North American PlayStation Store on December 21st
The collection of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable titles will be released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NEOGEO console. The NEOGEO Station is billed as a continuously growing library of NEOGEO titles, with each game...
King Of Fighters XII was ok, but kind of a let-down
Let's hope then, that SNK Playmore can hit the jackpot with King Of Fighters XIII - which was announced last night. Aside from the game running on the Taito Taito X2 hardware system, details are scant. We're sure there will be more in the coming weeks.
Remember when no one cared about beat 'em up games
Well they're back. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Street Fighter IV have secured that. But what after that? Well, this July we'll all be playing as Terry Bogard in old favourite King Of Fighters. XII. The homeward bound arcade port will feature a roster beyond the arcades 20, and a new anti-aliasing mode to make the graphics all nice and smooth..
