Netmarble announced today that they would finally be taking steps to bring The King of Fighters Allstar to the west on iOS and Android devices. If you're not familiar with this one, it's based in the King of Fighters universe, but it has the entire fighter list from the series in one game. Now… if only they made that for console. We have some details for you below, but right now, there's no firm release date on the game beyond "2019".
The King of Fighters Allstar boasts fast-paced fighting action, as players battle their way through waves of enemies, giant bosses and rival teams of fighters.
