Garou: Mark of the Wolves is coming to PS4 and PS Vita

The classic Neo Geo fighting game returns with Cross Buy and Cross Play

We at SNK know how excited fighting game fans are during EVO. To celebrate, together with SIEA Third Party Production, we’re pleased to announce that our next game to hit PlayStation Store will be the legendary Neo Geo classic Garou: Mark of the Wolves on both PS4 and PS Vita — with Cross Buy support!

This upcoming version, developed with Code Mystics, Inc., will once again have Cross Play functionality and, of course, online multiplayer as well.

25th anniversary of the Fatal Fury series

Some fans may ask why we’re announcing our latest PlayStation game at this time. When we asked fans which Neo Geo classic they would like to see most on PSN, there were a huge number of fans who voted for Mark of the Wolves. Additionally, the beloved Fatal Fury series celebrates its 25th anniversary.

For the staff here at SNK, there was little hesitation in this decision.

Gallery Mode and sound test features

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.

Furthermore, Garou’s original soundtrack will be available to sample in the game menu. We want you to feel the real Garou/Fatal Fury fever along with your memories of the Neo Geo system.

High-quality netcode

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.

Great news! If you guys partner with a publisher for a physical version I’ll double-dip!!

Better bring The KOF 98,99,2000 to Europe region.

Please get Twinkle Star Sprites on here as well!
And while we’re at it, Money Idol Exchanger, Puzzle De Pon (R) and Neo Turf Masters.

Top players golf please.

I need Samurai Showdown II. Still the best game in the series.

Despite a small roster with some bland characters it’s still probably the most all round fighter solid SNK ever did.

‘with your memories of the Neo Geo system.’ I think most people’s memories of it would be in the arcade since the home console and it’s games were ridiculously expensive. :P

Magnificent! Day-1 purchase for me!
