First announced back in 2020 as The King of Fighters: Street War, publisher Joycity announced today that the official global name for this strategy SLG title is now The King of Fighters: Survival City. Based on the popular fighting game from SNK, the game is now being classified as a “survival action SLG”, perhaps the first of its kind when it comes to genre classification. The story is about the fighters going against the evil organization known as NESTS, this time seeking world domination through an experimental army.
While no screenshots were made available, it was mentioned that The King of Fighters: Survival City “faithfully retaining the charm of the original fighting game” with players able to “use each character’s special moves in the battle stage.” A one-day Focus Group Test will be held in South Korea on November 1, before launching the game worldwide after adjustments based on feedback are made. Stay tuned for new details!
