Port of 4th game in KoF crossover fighting game series launches this spring

SNK announced during the Evo Japan 2018 event on Sunday that it will re-release its The King of Fighters '97 fighting game for the PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita with the title The King of Fighters '97 Global Match this spring. The new port will add online multiplayer to the game.

The game is the fourth game in SNK's The King of Fighters crossover fighting game series, and it debuted in 1997. New to the game at the time was the feature of selecting Advanced or Extra modes. Extra mode allowed players to use mechanics similar to The King of Fighters '94 and The King of Fighters '95, while Advanced mode allowed players to use mechanics that were introduced in The King of Fighters '96, including running, rolling, short hops, and a three-meter gauge (most of which would go on to become staple mechanics in the rest of the series).

The latest game in the series, The King of Fighters XIV, shipped in Japan and the West in August 2016. A PC version debuted last June.
