Ah, the Nineties…

This is King Of Fighters '97, which is COMPLETELY different to KOF '96 and '98, obviously.

Can you remember where you were in 1995? Can you remember where you were yesterday? If the answer to both of those questions is “No!”, you’re probably as old as me. Any which way you slice it, King Of Fighters as a series was pretty chuffing good in the 1990s, and its elitist connotations made for great bragging material (“Yeah, well I’ve got the MVS cart of KOF ’98 – beat that!”). Now it’s just dusty museum material, but hey, at least SNK is curating its corner of the Great Videogames Archive in the Sky in fine fashion:


The King Of Fighters Portable ’94-’98 Chapter of Orochi is a PSP compilation of five KOF titles that you’ve likely already MAMEd to death in the past decade. Hey-ho. This latest compi is out in Japan on June 24th and features ad-hoc two-player “antics”, training modes for each title, and stuff. That’s King Of Fighters ’94 (Baggio!), ’95 (blank), ’96 (it’s coming home!), ’97 (N64?) and ’98 (Dreamcast!) in one 21st Century-damning bundle o’ joy.
