Rumor: King of Fighters 13 and older games in series coming to Steam There's a tool people can use to check which games are registered on Steam, and in the past it has been used to see in advance which games are coming to the service.

A few new entries that should catch the eyes of SNK Playmore fighting game fans have recently popped up on the tool. The latest entry in the King of Fighters series (13), along with a few of their older games which are community favorites are said to be available in the future.

Sites such as Cinemablend and GameChup investigated things a bit further, and saw that some past history is on the side of this list being accurate, with other titles showing up in the tool first before they were released on Steam.

Here's a quick rundown of fighting games that popped up this time around.

• King of Fighters 13
• King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match
• King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match

This is somewhat surprising news, as it's fairly rare for major fighting games to see PC ports, so much so that Namco Bandai's Katsuhiro Harada remarked that fighting games are not good for the PC, and PC gamers aren't interested in this particular genre.

If this rumor holds up, it could be some positive news for PC gamers around the globe.
