“The King of Fighters: World” Spins the Fighter Off into an Online RPG

If you love The King of Fighters but aren’t too keen on the whole fighting game thing, SNK’s newly-announced entry might be for you. The King of Fighters: World is an online RPG that’s currently in the works for iOS and Android, with a debut in China to kick things off this summer. A worldwide release will follow sometime after that. 


Players will be able to interact with a variety of characters from the series, engaging in everything from solving puzzles to, naturally, fighting. World will use a 3D engine to allow players to freely explore The King of Fighters world. 


Here’s a concept trailer:
