'World Heroes Anthology' (PS2) Announced

World Heroes Anthology is a complete compilation of SNK's 2D-fighting series World Heroes. Included in the collection are World Heroes, World Heroes 2, World Heroes 2 Jet and World Heroes Perfect.

In World Heroes Anthology, players battle through history in a tournament facilitated by a time machine, so many of the game's dozens of characters are based on actual historical figures. World Heroes Anthology includes hand-to-hand combat as well as weapons-based fighting, and super-human abilities allow characters to perform powerful special attacks.

"World Heroes Anthology puts a twist on the tried-and-true 2D-fighter formula," said Ben Herman, president of SNK Playmore USA. "The time-travel element allows for the inclusion of characters inspired by figures ranging from ancient philosophers to modern-day athletes."

World Heroes Anthology will be available for the PS2 in spring 2008.
