The King of Fighters XIV is the latest installment of SNK, which is now available on both PC and PS4. However, it seems that the company would be working on another title called Neo Geo Battle Coliseum 2, the first part of the game that was released in 2002 on PS2 and Xbox 360.


Neo Geo Battle Coliseum was a 2 vs 2 game featuring characters from various SNK franchises including The King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Aggressor of Dark Combat or World Heroes.
