FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wall, NJ - Aug 07, 2007 SNK PLAYMORE USA CORPORATION, the U.S. publishing arm of the SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION, today announced FATAL FURY: BATTLE ARCHIVES Vol. 1 has shipped for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system for only $14.99 suggested retail.
FATAL FURY: BATTLE ARCHIVES Vol. 1 will include four classic FATAL FURY games: FATAL FURY, FATAL FURY 2, FATAL FURY SPECIAL and FATAL FURY 3: Road to The Final Victory. The compilation's release will mark the first time FATAL FURY has appeared on the PlayStation®2 system in North America.
The FATAL FURY series was SNK's first ongoing fighting-game franchise, and many beloved SNK characters and locations made their first appearances in FATAL FURY. FATAL FURY was also the first fighting game to feature a two-plane system, allowing characters to dodge out of harm's way when confronted with a challenger's attacks.
"With the release of FATAL FURY: BATTLE ARCHIVES Vol. 1 for the PlayStation®2 system, a brand-new generation of gamers will be introduced to one of SNK PLAYMORE's earliest fighting classics," said Ben Herman, president of SNK PLAYMORE USA CORPORATION, "and gamers who loved FATAL FURY 15 years ago will relish the chance to revisit the golden age of 2D fighters."
