The King of Fighters '98 is an unlicensed fighting game published for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis console by X Boy, based on the game of the same name .

A sequel, King of Fighters '99 , was released the next year.

Overview

King of Fighters &#039;98, The (Unl) -p1--!-000
The game consists of 3-on-3 matches, with various characters, sound samples, & backgrounds taken from various sources such Street Fighter, Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting.

Each character has a "dark" or "evil" version to pick. These are often thought of as simple recolors to pad the roster out (a technique used in many Famicom fighters), however on this game they are true alternate versions. Their basic moveset is usually the same, but their special and super moves are totally different from their regular versions.

The controls in game are simple: The A button blocks, B & C punch and kick respectively. A super move can be done whenever the MAX icon flashes below your lifebar. Throws are not implimented.

The endings are minimal, with a simple "Congratulation" screen.
