Originally released for arcades and Neo Geo in 2000, The King of Fighters 2000 was the seventh and final entry in the series SNK produced before going belly up in 2001. After SNK founderEikichi Kawasaki’s Playmore Corporation acquired the rights to King of Fighters and the rest of SNK’s intellectual properties, the game eventually wound up on Dreamcast and PlayStation 2.

The version coming to PlayStation Network this Tuesday is a slightly improved rendition of the PS2 release, which comes things like up-scaled to 1080p visuals, remote play, and sharing features.

SNK released The King of Fighters 2000 for PS4 via Japanese PSN last month.
