The game is in a team battle 3-on-3 format that is usually is the standard for future dream match titles other than KOF itself. There is single player mode as well but no one goes there do they?
Every few games, they have a new saga and focus the game around a new set of characters something Street Fighter NEVER DONE! and add a somewhat newer cast withsome old school faves.
Usually those that bash KOF usually got their ass handed to them by Rugal or some other SNK boss character with relative ease because they tried to play it like Street Fighter
Me: yes, some of the designs of the characters are similar but at least The King of Fighters has a continuiing storyline unlike Street Fighter who still relies on the success on the 2nd game that came out 20 years AGO!
