Most of the games in the Play Store from SNK Playmore are related to The King of Fighters and Metal Slug franchises, but these are far from the only ones the company has produced over the years. Fighting game fans in particular have been able to enjoy Samurai Shodown II, along with an entry in the Fatal Fury series—Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Now the company has released the arcade hit Fatal Fury Special into the Play Store as well.

Fatal Fury Special has been around since 1993, making this the time to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The entry followed Fatal Fury 2, taking its game mechanics and adding on a new combo system, turning up the speed, and refining the game's balance. There are a total of sixteen characters to choose from.

This is a port of the NEOGEO version, which includes a six-button layout featuring "Special Moves" and "Line Sway" buttons.

Android gamers can compete with one another using Bluetooth. Both players need a copy of the game, which you can each grab for $3.99 from the Play Store below.

Price: $3.99
