SNK Playmore USA announced that The King of Fighters XI and NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, are coming for the PS2. Both classic SNK arcade titles are scheduled for release in North America this fall.

The King of Fighters XI expands on the winning King of Fighters formula with new strategic options like Quick Shift and Saving Shift, which allow greater precision and control when switching out characters, the match-deciding Judgment Indicator, and Dream Cancel, which wreaks even more havoc than the Super Cancels found in previous games. In addition to all the 2D-fighting goodness found in the popular arcade version, The King of Fighters XI for PS2 offers exclusive features including extra characters, bonus stages and brand- new music.

Set in the year 2017, NEOGEO Battle Coliseum pits players against a man determined to rule the NEOGEO world. The game employs a two vs. two tag- team battle system allowing players to switch characters during play and perform team attacks on their opponents. The character roster has 40 characters represented by well-known faces from the likes of World Heroes, Art of Fighting, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Last Blade, Metal Slug and Kizuna Encounter.

"King of Fighters XI and NEOGEO Battle Coliseum will give SNK fans everything they've come to expect plus great new features that put a twist on the classic game play," said Ben Herman, president of SNK Playmore USA Corp.

Both titles will be available this fall.
