SNK Playmore decided to team up with Sony Interactive Entertainment in order to help them bring Neo Geo classic, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, to the PS4 and PS Vita.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game, Garou: Mark of the Wolves originally released back in 1999 for the Neo Geo system, and it was praised for its colorful characters and pushing the system’s technical abilities to the limit.
The game will be developed by Code Mystics, and will be available later this year. It will support cross-buy between PS4 and PS Vita, as well as cross-play and online multiplayer. It also happens to be Fatal Fury series’ 25th anniversary.
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.
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.
Let’s hope it will be as good as the original.
