Options available will include a standard boxed edition of KoF ’98 Final Edition on PS4, a Collector’s Edition (limited to 2500 copies) with classic Neo Geo-style packaging, and finally, a Deluxe Edition (limited to 200 copies) that also includes an aluminum plate featuring a reproduction of the KoF ’98 Final Edition artwork.

All physical releases will launch later in 2022, but if you want in on the limited editions, but sure to put down your pre-order, exclusively on the Pix’n Love store, at 08:00 PT/ 11:00 ET /16 :00 BST.
