    "SNK is converting The King of Fighters into a shooting game. Bizarre, but far from the first franchise SNK shoehorned into a different genre.

    A few weeks ago SNK slipped Metal Slug Tactics onto mobile phones. The battle scenes make the game look a lot like Advance Wars with Metal Slug sprites. Also similar is a cash system where players build their army by spending cash and selecting 90 kinds of units. Not exactly original, but not bad for a little mobile phone game either."

    Wow, that's cool. I've stopped being updated with mobile gaming since a long time ago...(hey look, Asphalt 4 & omgwhat's this, a way to run N-Gage games on normal phone?!). Last thing I got was Wolfenstein RPG, which was amazing.

    Now I'mma go hunting for this one [​IMG]
