During this year’s EVO Japan 2018 tournament in Akihabara, Tokyo, SNK decided to announce that The King of Fighters ’97 Global Match will arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this Spring.
This will be the latest Neo Geo port from the company, with the title featuring the addition of online support so players can fight one another in multiplayer. As of right now, no announcement has been made about a Western release, so we will have to be patient until we receive more news.
The game was a big hit on the original Neo Geo and it has also been ported onto a variety of different consoles and devices over the years, including the Nintendo Wii, PSP, PS2, PS4, and even iOS and Android. This will be the first version of the game that allows players to battle it out in online matches.
