King of Fighters, Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown, and Blazing Star plummet in price on iOS

By , on August 22, 2014

On the 25th August King of Fighters celebrates its 20th anniversary.

This alone is enough to get excited. It's a great excuse to go back and play some of the greatest fighting games ever made, and bask in all of their quarter turn glory.

What's better though is that SNK is joining in the festivities by dropping the price of every mobile and tablet game in its arsenal to an extremely tempting 99c / 69p, between August 22nd - 26th.

The Japanese developer / publisher usually likes to keep its games premium, so considering they're temporarily available for the price of a bar of chocolate, this sale represents a great opportunity to net yourself a bargain.

I've made no secret of my love of all things SNK, whether that be on the podcast, on the streams, or on any video even vaguely related to SNK. So clearly I reckon you should take advantage of this price drop. The full list of games on sale (with links to editorial from AppSpy / Pocket Gamer) is;

The King of Fighters '98
The King of Fighters '97
The King of Fighters-i 2012
The King of Fighters-i
Metal Slug 3
Metal Slug X
Metal Slug 2
Metal Slug
Samurai Shodown II
Blazing Star

No word yet on a sale hitting Android devices, but we've got our fingers firmly crossed for one.
