NeoGeo Battle Coliseum dated

Battle SNK legends this autumn.

Ignition will be bringing NeoGeo Battle Coliseum to European PS2s this autumn, the UK publisher announced today.

Battle Coliseum is a beat-'em-up in which players draw on characters from a range of SNK titles including World Heroes, Art of Fighting, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, Last Blade, Metal Slug and Kizuna Encounter.

As well as just-plain-fighting, you'll be able to create your dream twosome of SNK characters thanks to the two-on-two Tag Team battle system, which allows allow for team attacks.

We're also told to expect six hidden characters. See if you spot any in the screenshots that accompanied the announcement.

Battle Coliseum forms part of the recent SNK Playmore publishing deal extension Ignition signed - along with the likes of King of Fighters XI, King of Fighters Maximum Impact 2, SNK Vs Capcom Card Fighters and Metal Slug Anthology.
