The game was released in Japan in April 2009 for arcades with an home versions for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3  in July 28 of the same year.

    Games is Enjoyable for every human in the idle times. Fighting games is enjoyable among the two or above players. So Computer Games is best policy for who man is free. KOF Series games more favorable.
