King of Fighters hits the iPhone!


Fluid animation, sexy action on iOS, SNK-style!

SNK Playmore’s team battler, King of Fighters, has just hit the Apple appstore, preceding the full-size console version by several months. The game features an initial lineup of 14 fighters (with apparently 6 more to be added in October). Included on the roster is Mai Shiranui, the bouncy ninja who missed the bus to KOFXII, and Billy Kane, who has recently been confirmed to be headed for the console versions of KOFXIII later this year.
Play modes include 3-on-3 Team Battle, 1-on-1 Single Battle, Endless Survival Mode and Training Mode. Wireless Play will be supported via Bluetooth. From the vid of the game, this new brawler looks pretty impressive, sporting the same fluid animation as on the arcade and console versions. It’s a proper 2D fighter that should look all the more impressive on HD retina screens. Check it out for yourself at Adriasang.

KOF iOS should be out in most appstores now- I’ll be sure to grab it tonight (even if it IS a pricey $7.99). A review should come soon afterwards once I bust a few heads.
