ESRB rates KOF 95 for PS3 and PSP

It looks as though the NeoGeo Station is far from dead. The ESRB has rated KOF95 for both Sony systems, pointing to an update to the NeoGeo Station. Will this update be KOF95 alone or will we see other NeoGeo games released at the same time? If nothing else, this is more evidence that certain claims regarding the future of SNKP were false.

The ESRB description:

This is a 2D arcade-style fighting game in which players compete in one-on-one combat with a large international cast of selectable characters. Players engage in hand-to-hand battles by mostly kicking, punching, and blocking their way to victory until the opposing player’s life meter runs out. Players can also trigger special moves to cause larger amounts of damage to their opponents. Some female fighters wear outfits that reveal deep cleavage and portions of their buttocks. A few characters in the background are seen with (what appears to be) bottles of alcohol; a main character holds two sake bottles during battle, has rosy cheeks, and says, ‘To make things easier next time I’ll fight drunk.’
