SNK has had their eyes on the PC market for quite some time
With the imminent official release of KoFXIII on Steam tomorrow, SNK Playmore today revealed that their North American and European Business Department has had their eyes on the PC market for quite a while in an interview with Siliconera. They began their work on the Steam platform earlier this year, starting with putting the right development team and infrastructure together, before working on porting KoFXIII to Steam.
Additionally, SNK Playmore said that their experience working with Valve on the Steam platform had been an incredible positive one and that they hope to work with them more in the future.
With an incredible library of games, SNK Playmore certainly has a lot of good options for porting their games to PC. Let us know in the comment section and forums what you would like to see from SNK Playmore in the future!
