    I see this game at the Toy'R'Us website as coming soon....well, sort of....

    They list it as coming out tomorrow.....for the last couple months. LOL. As soon as "tomorrow" comes, they bump the date to the next day....a never-ending loop.


    So, is this game ever coming out or what? Anyone know?

    The developers responded to an email a while back and basically said "it'll definitely be out, if only in limited quantities." They estimated it could take until June/July.

    play-asia just added it for pre-order - release date "TBA" can't be much longer now.

    Ok I sent a email to SNK Playmore and Europe will DEFINITELY get a budget release June 29th and US July 15th (limited release), but the US date could slip.

    Atari have lost the rights to publish it so SNK Playmore are handling it themselves instead.

    I have to say kudos to SNK for actually replying, unlike Atari who just ignored me.

    i can't find the game on Play-Asia. Looks like it's been removed [​IMG]

    can we assume that this release was canned? [​IMG]

    Its been removed from SNK's site a while back, I'm guessing its canceled.

    numerous sources have reported this title cancelled for about a year now.
