Samurai Showdown Comes Home

On the heels of Mr Wilsons great post on the upcoming SNK Arcade Classics Volume 1, I want to talk about another great another great SNK disc coming soon: Samurai Showdown Anthology.

At the GDC, the SNK rep showed some of what was coming stateside. Video can be found at GameSpot:

- King of Fighters 98 Ultimate Match
- King of Fighters Orochi Saga (includes 94 and regular 98 in addition to 95, 96 and 97)
- Fatal Fury Battle Archives V 2 (The Real Bout games)
- World Heroes Anthology (all the WH games)
- Metal Slug 7 (for the DS)
- SNK Arcade Classics Vol 1
- Samurai Showdown Anthology (1-6, including 5 Special)

They also showed the same footage of KoF 12 and the new 3D Sam Sho.

Sam Sho 2 is among the best 2d fighters ever released and I spent many a day dropping quarters at Break Point in the VCU Commons as a sophomore playing the game. I am super juiced to hear this was coming to both the PS2 and Wii.

SNK has really been coming through with releasing the classics in the US. Now can I get some Garou: Mark of the Wolves?
