If you love old-school side-scroller fighting games like Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter, then you've probably played one of the many The Kings of Fighters games throughout the years. The series has now made its way to Android, albeit only for a few select devices for the time being.

The Android version of TKoF brings all of the in-your-face gameplay that fans of the franchise have come to expect, including three-on-three Team Battle mode, Single Battle, and Endless Endurance mode so you can really test your skills. The game also features 20 classic characters, like Kyo Kusanagi, K’, Ash Crimson, and Billy Kane.

The game will set you back $4.99, but, as we've already mentioned, it only works on a few devices at the moment: the Samsung Galaxy S II (should work on all variants, but this hasn't been confirmed), Sony Ericsson Xperia Acro HD and Xperia Play, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (though the Store listing shows it as incompatible with my Tab 10.1). If you have one of the aforementioned devices and are ready to kick some ass, hit the widget below.

    Good thing it wasn't Street Fighter 2 with online multiplayer or I'd never be able to do work again.

    Available on my Epic Touch, but not on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, as Cameron said.

    Why is this available on my HTC Magic but not my Galaxy Nexus o_O. Also good on my touchpad ;)

    In my Google Play it shows that I can install it on: Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Xperia arc, Xperia arc S and Xperia Mini. (I'm from Poland, maybe this affects the available choice)
    Still, a bit to expensive. Moreover, I hate when game costs over $2-$3 and there is no video presenting it. I will NOT buy any game based on pictures. Of course, some people will make videos soon, but this is the thing developers should care about.

    One of the best fighter around, shame it's not supported on the Galaxy Nexus, if it had a trial version I would give it a go to see if the app would work...

    The market says it's not available for the TMOB Samsung Galaxy S2, but it's good to go for the HP TOUCHPAD.

    Says not compatible with Atrix.

    Kind of pointless to play a game like this on a touch screen anyway unless you have a gamepad hooked up.

    Wish I would have kept my Infuse, the only phone I ever owned which works with this game. Very interesting that phone made the list.
