SNK took the opportunity of the EVO Japan 2018 to announce a new brawl of its most famous series, The King of Fighters ’97 Global Match.
The King of Fighters is one of those veteran fighting franchises that have been landing on different platforms for years, The King of Fighters XIV being the last major installment, released in the summer of 2016 and with a great reception among the media and its followers. Today, SNK has announced a new version of one of its classics which is now subtitled as The King of Fighters ’97 Global Match.
At the moment we know that its announcement was made in the framework of the EVO Japan 2018 although it is expected that the title will end up reaching the rest of the world. It is a new version of the title, so we do not expect significant graphics improvements except for a resolution increase.
It will incorporate, as a remarkable novelty, an online mode along with other new features; and will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC.
The King of Fighters ’97 introduces two new playable modes called Advance and Extra, which are based on title ’94 of the game in the case of Extra mode, and ’96 of Advance mode; new characters are also introduced.
The title also supposes the end of the “Saga Orichi” composed by the three titles previous to the game (The King of Fighters ’95 and ’96). We remind you that you can access other versions of The King of Fighters ’97 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
