The King of Fighters NeoWave (c) 2004 SNK Playmore

The first King of Fighters episode running on Atomiswave, the hardware on which SNK Playmore will develop the main part of its future games.


Sammy Atomiswave


The characters' graphics, moves and sounds are very close from those of "The King of Fighters 2002 - Challenge to Ultimate Battle".

As in the previous episodes, the characters are controlled with 2 punches buttons and 2 kicks buttons but also an additional button for the activation of the new 'Heat mode', which strengthen your character's attacks but on the same time drain his life.

Button configuration and software settings can be changed to answer the needs of all types of locations.

Leona, Ralph and Clark are playable characters in the Foma 90x Series Mobile Phones game 'Metal Slug Survivors'.
