SNK's King Of Fighters '97 Brawls Onto Android & iOS Devices

KOF-97-on-MobileAlthough most coin-op fighting fans will prefer delivering a combo of punches with arcade controls, the thought of keeping King Of Fighters 97 in your pocket on a touchscreen device may still win some of the die-hards over - a release which is now available on iOS and Android devices.

We won't lie, pulling off Terry Bogard's power wave or Mai Shiranaui's Kachosen won't be easy without tactile controls, but this is something SNK Playmore are fully aware of. The newly introduced mode of play to this Neo Geo port offers new buttons into the mix and simplified special move functionality.

Touchscreen controls aside, judging by the reviews on the Google Play Store it would appear that the title is also compatible with bluetooth control pads and physical gamepads - leaving Android gamers no excuse for their lacking skills.

I like low cost options to own games like this, but only to "legitimize" playing downloaded ROMS. Seriously, 2D fighters on a phone are the worst idea since, well, Megaman on a phone.
