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 to the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 – though the latter version never deployed in the West.
The game will feature cross-buy support on Sony's current systems, and will boast online multiplayer with full cross-play functionality. You can also expect a Gallery Mode, Sound Test, and the same top-notch netcode which was last used in The Last Blade 2. But, with the Fatal Fury series celebrating its 25th anniversary, why did the publisher pick Mark of the Wolves as its next PlayStation port?
"When we asked the PlayStation Nation which Neo Geo classic they would like to see most on PSN, there were a huge number of fans who voted for Mark of the Wolves," SNK's Laurent Vernezy wrote on the PlayStation Blog. "For the staff here at SNK, there was little hesitation in this decision." There's no date just yet, but we've embedded some Dreamcast gameplay below.
