As far as SNK Playmore is concerned, 2D fighting never dies. The publisher will be releasing two more fighters on the PlayStation 2 this October. Neo Geo Battle Coliseum and The King of Fighters XI will be making their way to the console in the coming weeks.

Neo Geo Battle Coliseum is a two-on-two tag-team fighter, which without a doubt warrants its existence with one of the best plots ever. One man, as the leader of something called "The Warez Conglomerate," vows to put an end to all of Neo Geo's "most powerful warriors." While we didn't really need an explanation as to why characters from Metal Slug, Fatal Fury, King of the Monsters, and other Neo Geo titles were at each other's throats, it's nice to know someone at least was thinking about it. 

The King of Fighters XI, of course, is more of what you'd expect from the series -- tons of fighters, and hot 2D character on 2D character action. The game adds some new mechanics like Quick Shift and Saving Shift into the mix, which give players more control when switching between characters. The PlayStation 2 version of the game will also include the pre-requisite exclusive extra characters, bonus stages, and brand-new music.

Neo Geo Battle Coliseum will be available in stores on October 23, but if you're itching for a sprite fight sooner, never fear -- The King of Fighter XI ships on October 4.
