Like The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match, another classic SNK fighting game is headed to XBLA. SNK Playmore announced that NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, a 2-vs.-2 fighting game starring characters from various Neo Geo games, will be released on XBLA in Japan on June 9 with newly upscaled sprites.

NeoGeo Battle Coliseum gives players even weirder character choices than the usual KOF fare (though plenty of KOF and Fatal Fury mainstays appear), like Cyber Woo from King of the Monsters 2 and Athena from the abysmal SNK "classic" of the same name, all in the fight against "WAREZ," a personification of software piracy.

The release is for Japan only for now, but Siliconera notes that a German USK rating has been spotted for the game, suggesting a Western release.
