Play THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’97, the cult classic Android game, as the new challenger. You can relive this fighting gem’s numerous endings by playing one of its legendary (sometimes hidden) teams. Avenge Kyo Kusanagi’s death at the hands of Orochi Yagami’s evil resurrection scheme.
Try to master the infamous New Face Team or the KOF ’97 Special Team while playing as some of SNK’s most famous fighters, such as Kyo Kusanagi and Terry Bogard. Orochi Iori and Orochi Leona, two of the most powerful characters in the game, can now be selected from the character select screen in the NEO GEO version. Use the Affinity System to choose your team members and have fun with them before the game for the first time in the series.
EXTRA and ADVANCED modes are available in KOF ’97. Become an expert in the system that works best for you and destroys your rivals. Numerous jumps allow you to inflict harm on your opponent in several ways. This is a must-have if you believe that offense is the best defense. You can perform lethal Desperation Moves or go into MAX mode by filling up your power gauges. Affinity-based Power gauges are still available, even if you lose the round.
Use the Evade move to send your opponent flying when you’re being rushed. For a predetermined period, fill your Power gauge to activate Power Max mode. It is possible to use your Desperation Moves to your heart’s content when you are on the verge of exhaustion, which is indicated by the red and blinking health bar. With the SP button, you can either play the game with the original four-button layout or switch to the new six-button layout and the simplified special move. Challenge your friends via Bluetooth Multiplayer to see who is truly the KING OF FIGHTERS.
