Thanks to a listing on the EU eShop, we know what will be coming next week for Switch in terms of Neo Geo Arcade games. We will be getting the legendary Garou: Mark of The Wolves on 5/11. The game was the finale of the Fatal Fury series, and was SNK’s equivalent to Street Fighter III.

 

“Garou: Mark of the Wolves is a fighting game released by SNK in 1999. The son of Geese Howard, Rock Howard, who has been raised by Terry Bogard is the main character in this first episode of a new generation in the Fatal Fury series. Numerous new game mechanics such as the ‘Breaking’ feature have been introduced in this acclaimed fighting masterpiece resulting in a game with a variety of deep strategies available to players.”

This is a classic game and Nintendo fans should really take the time to check this out. You wont regret it.

We at SNK know how excited fighting game fans are during EVO. To celebrate, together with SIEA Third Party Production, we’re pleased to announce that our next game to hit PlayStation Store will be the legendary Neo Geo classic Garou: Mark of the Wolves on both PS4 and PS Vita — with cross buy support!

This upcoming version, developed with Code Mystics, Inc., will once again have cross play functionality and of course online multiplayer as well.

25th Anniversary of the Fatal Fury Series

Some fans may ask why we’re announcing our latest PlayStation game at this time. When we asked the PlayStation Nation which Neo Geo classic they would like to see most on PSN, there were a huge number of fans who voted for Mark of the Wolves. Additionally, the beloved Fatal Fury series celebrates its 25th anniversary.

For the staff here at SNK, there was little hesitation in this decision.

Gallery Mode and Sound Test Features

Both the PS4 and PS Vita versions will feature an illustrious Gallery Mode, where you’ll be able to unlock many stunning pieces of Mark of the Wolves and Fatal Fury series art through gameplay.

Furthermore, Garou’s original soundtrack will be available to sample in the game menu. We want you to feel the real Garou / Fatal Fury fever along with your memories of the Neo Geo system.

High-quality Netcode

For this title, we at SNK have decided to adopt Code Mystics’ proprietary netcode once again, which was used on our previous Neo Geo classic The Last Blade 2 and received praise from both fans and the press. The team in Vancouver is doing a fantastic job on Garou’s online multiplayer, giving new life to a legendary fighting game classic and ensuring the online gameplay brings SNK fans and series newcomers a great experience similar to the good ol’ days in the arcades.

We’ll be sure to come back with more information on Mark of the Wolves and other upcoming releases from SNK. Please stay tuned for more announcements on PlayStation.Blog!

This is great news. Garou MOTW was a legendary fighting game and fans have been clamoring for a sequel for years. Regarded as one of the greatest games ever made by SNK, this will be a must buy for any Playstation 4 or PlayStation Vita owner.
