THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 Introduction
THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 – the super famous arcade game one day has been brought back by the publisher SNK CORPORATION on the mobile platform. Just hearing its name, my childhood memory has overflowed.

This classic fighting game features simple, straight-to-the-point gameplay, thus providing a concise and focused experience to the players.
You can choose a favorite character from the available list. Use all 6 buttons on the screen (including moving back and forth, punching, kicking with skillful combos) to knock out enemies after 3 rounds.
The first thing to mention is balance. This is the part that does its best balance in the series. The characters, whether they are heroes, martial artists, warriors, or thugs, all have certain skills, so that when confronting each other, they still have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Everyone has an advantage on the battlefield and has not too much difference in strength like in the previous parts. This is the key point that creates the attraction for the hand-to-hand combat in the game. Assuming the difference in strength is too much, you will narrow your options because no one wants to choose a weak character, right?
Another novelty in this game is the battle mechanism that allows choosing 3 characters at the same time. Each person will stand up to fight one AI opponent. The other two friends stand next to cheering but do not participate. The battle is, therefore, more attractive, longer than the old fighting games, and the presence of many characters on the same screen also somehow creates a more modern battlefield.
- The best game balance in the KOF Series!
- 38 playable characters!

THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’98 Reviews:
Jose Peña: This game is a great representation of the classic game. Everything down to how the fighters fight, music, and places. One thing that the game is missing is the different difficult at fighter selection. Great game enjoy it still.
Matthew Asprer: Now works for Android 11!! Gotta hand it to SNK for updating their games. This port even does some things better than the ACA games; it has a training mode, a special moves button, etc. My only complaint is that the button mapping can be kinda weird.
Matt TurQ: The app itself is great when it works, but at the moment, it is stuck running at a lower version of Android and doesn’t work with newer phones like the pixel 5 Edit: this game has been patched to now work with the new Google Pixel 5. Back to 5 stars!
