Metal Slug? King of Fighters? King of the Monsters? Fatal Fury? It’s like someone grabbed my childhood, threw it in a Delorean, and brought it here in a nice little package. This would be an absolute no brainer for me if I had any spare cash whatsoever. For those of you with a more disposable income, you can preorder the system via Amazon or GameStop, and it will be made available at these retailers, as well as Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Toys R Us, on December 6th, 2012, for $199.99.
