Last week, SNK Playmore released the arcade version of King of Fighters: Sky Stage
. The marks the transition of the classic SNK fighting game series into the top down shooter genre. Players have their choice of six playable characters from the KoF series: Mai, Iori, Kyo, Kula, Athena, and Terry. You will have to guide your characters through varying stages shooting down endless waves of enemies, facing huge bosses. This game screams old school shooter in every way. While the game is currently gracing the arcades in Japan, an Xbox 360 version is planned for release, possibly later this year.
