The title, a classic released by SNK back in 1999 in Japan, is heading to the new hybrid console of Nintendo; A work that marked the beginning of the NESTS episode of the King of Fighters story focusing on the new character K’ and not on Kyo Kusanagi.

This version will include all the contents of the original game with the addition of the new Striker mode, which will allow you to better plan their attacks, adding that a minimum strategic component to the title.
