Yesterday, SNK released the Japan only PS2 title Fu’un Super Combo which is a double pack compilation game of two Neo-Geo titles released in the mid 90s’, Savage Reign & Kizuna Encounter on PSN for PS4 players on PSN here in North America. USA players more than likely have played both of these titles on the Neo-Geo in the past either on it’s console or in the arcades.
Savage Reign was released in 1995. The player controls one of 9 characters (2 bosses). The most identifiable character players may recognize is Hayate who appeared as a unlockable character in King of Fighters XI.
Kizuna Encounter (Super Tag Battle) is the sequel to Savage Reign. It was released in late 1996. There are 10 playable characters, and it is tag-based; the players selects two characters on one team.
Both games are available now on PSN. Look under the catagory: PS2 on PS4 in the Games section to find it!
