BootlegGames Wiki

The Takara King of Fighters engine is an engine originally developed by Gaibrain[1] for Takara's official Game Boy ports of SNK's The King of Fighters '95 and '96 and Real Bout Special games. It would later be used by Vast Fame for its series of Game Boy Color fighting games.

The first known pirate game using this engine - and the only one in monochrome - is The King of Fighters '97, a hack of the official The King of Fighters '96 Game Boy game combining the characters from '95 and '96. Vast Fame's fighting games appear to be based specifically on this hack rather than Takara's original games, going by leftover graphics in the ROM data of their fighting games.
