The King of Fighters '97 Global Match will launch this week on PS4 and PS Vita


Another re-release for the Orochi arc climax

Playstation blog The Drop has announced that SNK's King of Fighters '97 Global Match, which was revealed earlier this year at EVO Japan, will be hitting PS4 and PS Vita in just a few day's time.

The re-release is expected to be a straight port of the Neo Geo fighter. But will, of course, include online support, even allowing PS4 and PS Vita players to throw hands with each other in crossplay action.

As I've stated previously, it's a bit of a random release. The KoF titles have been made available again and again over the last ten years. Whether through Hamster's Neo Geo Classics range, PSN store releases, actual retail compilation discs, or the top-tier '98 Ultimate Match and '02 Unlimited Match titles. But ehh, I'm not SNK's dad, they can do as they please.

The King of Fighters '97 Global Match launches April 5 on PS4 and PS Vita. It's a safe bet that the PC release will follow presently.
