Fight fans, get ready to rumble. SNK’s classic, maybe best-loved KoF ever, King of Fighters 98 is hitting Limited Run this Friday.
Hail to the King
We all have favorite fighting games, or series’. I think it’s fair to say that a mainstay on many a fan’s list is the name ‘King of Fighters’. And there’s one game from that iconic series that usually stands above all others. That, of course, is King of Fighters 98.
If you’re a fan of this particular title, then you’re going to love what Limited Run has on tap for this Friday. The publisher of small batch games has two versions of the game ready, both for the PS4.
The first is the standard copy, which gets you the game only. But of course there’s a collector’s edition as well. And yes, it’s just as cool as you might have thought. The game is loaded into a package that recollects the SNK NEO GEO carts of old. But it gets better since it also comes with a replica (non-playable) cartridge and a set of art cards. Pretty slick, though that’s not all that’s going up for sale.
There will also be a double set of records. Containing the music from the game, this double set of vinyl or CD’s will also be available in a CE. Featuring a silver and gold pressing, the CE includes an autographed poster too.
As for how these will be sold, it depends on what you want. The game’s sales will be of the usual morning and evening batches. The OST though, seems like it might be even more exclusive.
Bottom line, get to the site early, make sure you’re logged in, and get ready to move fast. These things usually sell out like lightning.
Here are the details:
- Standard editions include a reversible cover – which cover has been sealed outwards has been randomized by the factory. Priced at $29.99.
- Each CE includes a copy of the game, a custom Shockbox made by Fangamer, a commemorative mini Neo Geo cart, and art cards! Priced at $59.99.
- Now you can get amped up without even opening the game — the King of Fighters ’98 OST will be available on vinyl or CD! Four-week pre-order for these start at 10am ET on Friday, May 22nd.
- The LRG-exclusive gold & silver variant of the King of Fighters ’98 OST on vinyl comes with an autographed poster signed by Hideki “Sha-V” Asanaka! This signed edition will be available in limited quantity at 10am ET this Friday, May 22nd.
