Date: 13th May‘08
SNK Playmore and Ignition Entertainment are pleased to announce the European release of the Fatal Fury Battle Archives Vol.1 for PlayStation®2.
Released in 1991, the original Fatal Fury introduced 3 of SNK’s most iconic characters, the brothers Bogard (Terry and Andy) and Joe Higashi, and chronicled their fight against Southtowns criminal kingpin, Geese Howard.
Fatal Fury was SNK’s first 2D fighting game to grace the popular NEOGEO AES system and spawned many sequels. It was due to the success of these and the unique gameplay elements they contained (inclusion of hidden characters from other franchises), that the massively successful The King of Fighters series was born.
The first volume of the Fatal Fury collection will contain Fatal Fury, Fatal Fury 2, Fatal Fury Special and Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory. The popularity of this franchise has seen many of its characters cross over into many of SNK’s other gaming franchises.
‘The Fatal Fury franchise contains a real piece of SNK’s history.’ says Peter Rollinson, Product Manager, Ignition Entertainment.‘It was these games that helped mould the successful gaming track record that SNK enjoys.’
