NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, released in 2005, is SNK-Playmore's counterpart to Capcom's Capcom Fighting Evolution. Boasting a massive roster of over forty characters, SNK combined numerous fighters from their various fighting universes (and even some new characters and non-fighting game characters), making NeoGeo Battle Coliseum the super-clash that SNK fans have been waiting for. Featuring a unique tag-team gameplay system and a special timer that takes the place of the traditional "ladder", Battle Coliseum is a refreshing fighting game in a time where SNK-Playmore seemed to be running out of ideas.
