SNK has finally dropped The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match onto the PlayStation Store for £12.99/$14.99. The game has already been available on Steam and Xbox for a while, but eager PlayStation fans now have the chance to snag themselves a digital copy today. The original game, King of Fighters 2002, was the ninth instalment in The King of Fighters series and is highly regarded as one of the best games from the franchise. The King of Fighters 2002 was a fighting game which primarily focused on the versus aspects of combat and was originally released on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Dreamcast.
In celebration of King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match release onto the PS4, we’ve also been treated to a launch trailer. In the trailer, we see the game has a larger roster with 66 playable characters. This adds to the original character roster of The King of Fighters 2002 with many exclusive characters originating from The Nests Chronicles, along with many more hidden ones. In fact, it boasts the largest ever cast from The King of Fighters series so far. That is not all, as plenty of old and new moves alike have been added, alongside characters abilities and mechanics being upgraded and redesigned in the hopes of making the game far more balanced overall.
Furthermore, the game has an Online Mode which claims to reduce online lag with its new rollback netcode. The Online Mode has two distinct features: Ranked Match, where battle outcomes are shared and ranked online, and Player Match, where you can set the versus battle setting to your personal preference.
