Regular readers will remember the ill-fated King of Fighters Online, a shift in gameplay for the beloved series that seemed like a good idea for almost a whole day, before developer Unotac canned it.
Undeterred, another Korean online gaming outfit, Mega Enterprises, has announced that it has signed the rights to make an online PC exclusive shooter-cum RPG using SNK’s famed shoot-em-up IP Metal Slug.
Unfortunately, no actual game details were released, with ME simply stating that the game would remain true to the series' root, in that it will be a 2D shooter, though it will feature heavy RPG and avatar-driven elements.
So the amazing SNK comedy bus rolls on. The world wouldn’t seem quite right without this kind of thing happening every few months, in our opinion, and long may it continue!
