    Yeah, I’d have thought ‘98 would be a more likely candidate, being the ‘fan favourite’ and all that.

    Probably they originally planned a 2017 release and thought a 20th anniversary was a good idea.

    TBH it's kind of nice seeing something different besides another KOF98 rerelease, even though it's the better game.

    I really can't stand '97 the colours are wack, the stages aren't drawn properly and the story is rubbish but at least Shermie get's some screen time right?

    97 is great and all, but if its just another straight port with some matchmaking, I'm going to pass.

    I'm pretty sick of this emulation jobs myself. How hard is it really to take these games, support widescreen and add the neo cd sound tracks? Would be nice to see new menus too.

    KOF '97 is prefered in China. I don't think this was made worring about what the westerners want. Saying that I wonder if they are really worried about the netcode since the internet is way better in the east. I'll probably pick it up eventually, but betting it will be a waste of money since Garou barely has anyone playing it western wise let alone SSVS and LB2.

    NGCD soundtracks as an option would be great. It'd at least show a bit more effort than charging for an emulator.

    I agree with the criticism of cheap release tactics in regards to remakes. We can only dream about such great past efforts like the GC version of Resident Evil, Conker: Live & -Reloaded on the first Xbox or the Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy for the PS4.

    I don't know if there's anything that could be done to that extent with NG games. I really hated the way Street Fighter 2 HD looked. That sort of hand drawn upscale job just wouldn't look good. I'd say if SNK is going to pour those kinds of resources into a game that they should make proper 2D, hand animated new entries into their franchises. In SD. But I kind of doubt that would have much appeal outside of communities like this.

    Honestly the PS4 versions of LB2, Garou, and SSVS were well made except for no cd soundtracks. You can play arcade mode while playing games, and an unlockable gallery were nice touches. Compare that to the Metal Slug games released on Steam they're way better.

    i'm on the same boat. i'm not a fan of sf2 hd remix. that udon art stile just looked like a shitty overlay effect you get in emulators. who thought it was a good idea to replace it with the beautiful og graphics?.

    Screenshots shown, framed 4:3, might be just from Vita.

    I might be the only one here but I actually like Legend of Success Joe, it's quite honestly the best game on the Neo.

    This just hit on the PC recently. I think KOF 98 Ultimate Match and KOF 2002 Unlimited Match were great releases for the enhancements they made. I own them both on the Playstation 2.

    97 Global Match seems oddly placed, and the middling reviews on Steam reflect that. It was neat to see that this exists, but there are too many cash grab emulation releases that pay poor homage to the originals. M2, who did many of the later Sega Ages 2500 series releases for Sega on PS2, really showed what a classic re-release should look like. Their releases had every resolution mode under the sun, from 240p to 480i to 480p, even with emulated scanline overlays. They are of Archival quality with their versaility and presentation. I wish the Neo-Geo could get this level of treatment. maybe 98 Ultimate/2002 Unlimited is the closest we will get in that regard.

    I really like 97 but I hate the decision to have only one round per fight have music, fuck that was dumb. One of the best things about KOF is the catchy music
    The Offensive Orgy Mode!!!

    Code Mystics recently added a rollback netcode to the Steam version of the game; they did so using their own time and were not compensated by SNK for doing this:

    https://steamcommunity.com/app/70212...3806570235127/

    Please consider showing your support in the thread above if you want other SNK games to feature a rollback netcode, as Code Mystics said they would forward this feedback to SNK to make the case for potentially upgrading the netcode of their other SNK ports and/or future projects.

    The game plays really well now, had some good matches with users in the 100-200 ping range. If you have the game feel free to add me; steam ID is izumixpanda. Not on the competitive level but up for some good casual matches when I'm on.

    Edit: They also just added the Team Endings to gallery mode as of yesterday.
