SNK Playmore has a new game in store for us following the success of their The King of Fighters franchise. The new title, The Rhythm of Fighters is set to launch for Android and iOS systems ‘soon,’ though no specific date is yet known.
Being labelled as a mix of ‘brawler and music game’, actual details on the gameplay are lacking at the moment. Through teasers we are told the battles will be rhythm-based and require the completion of special moves and combos (set to legendary SNK tracks) –and while the combination sounds fun, it is unlikely to be a great ‘waiting room time-sink’ when you need volume to play (unless you are more prepared than I usually am and have headphones in your pocket at all times).
It has been a while since we saw a new title from SNK Playmore: the launch of the first installment of The King of Fighters came in 1994 with the latest release being The King of Fighters 13 in 2009.
