New Game: King of Fighters '98 Hits Android

SNK Playmore has proven they are interested in keeping their games available for newer platforms. We have seen a few fighting games, the Metal Slug series has seen a release or two and we have gotten at least one shooter from the past. Now, we can add King of Fighters ’98 to the list of Neo Geo games to have made the jump.

King of Fighters ’98 is thought of as one of the better games in the series, partly due to dropping the over arching storyline (comics do this from time to time). What this means for fans is, some characters that had died off in previous titles are back for one more fight- like a dream match game.

If you are unfamiliar with the series, the King of Fighters games are one on one tag team fighting games. You get three fighters, chosen from the 38 fighters available, and then you take on another team of three fighters. As each fighter is KO’ed, the next fighter tags in and the fight continues.

If you have a controller available it is probably compatible. JXD and Yinlips gaming tablet owners already know how cool these games are with the hardware controls those tablets offer.
