    1x 50GB BluRay for KOF97 only?
    Will there be KOF98/XX later?
    I love the softbox item (softbox NOT Shockbox!) but it would have been better to have a proper "KOF Collection" with a lot of extras.

    I will never understand the endless fascination some people have with '97. It's the neither-fish-nor-foul entry of the series. '98 is much better gameplay-wise, and '96 is much better aesthetically. '97 is mediocre. At best. It's the one in the middle that excels at NOTHING.

    Maybe I'm not sufficiently jaded yet, but I do like the idea of the shockbox. It's a funny idea and looks nice. Just not for this game. The only Neo-Geo KOF I would like less than this one would be '99. Every other entry, including '03 and '94, I would choose over '97 in a New York minute.

    I could support a KOF collection encompasing the whole series as a release in a repro home cart case but a shockbox? That was fan made.

    I hate on these ultra mega deluxe releases of games with their useless shelf appeal garbage. The manufactured rarity Limited run games peddles has a lot to answer for.

    At this stage you could pump a shit into a snap lock case, call it king of fighters 2019 and people would buy it.

    I'm going to be a little more clear on what I feel about this.

    It's a cash grab to me 100%.

    If they really wanted my attention they should have done at least KoF 98'. This collection is being aimed at NeoGeo fans which I'm fine with to a point but they could have gone full in and done a Neo*Geo KoF collection from 94' to the last KoF game made for SNK's hardware.

    I would have accepted that 100% but just one game to me smells like they're going to milk this shit for multiple titles so you can have fake NGH shockboxes on your shelf to make yourself feel like you own the original SNK home carts.


    Yeah fuck this thing to hell...

    @Gohan and STK: I actually liked KoF 97's presentation. It sorta grew on me over the years.

    People like that overly serious Orochi storyline, and also Shermie's tits.

    I like 97, it is a cool game and the background music/sound effects are the best of the series. I don't play it competitively so maybe it is broken af.

    But LRG can DIAF.

    And the less we talk about 99 the better. Even though K a brilliant character.
    2K was not great but the presentation and strikers made it charming
    Not a big fan of 98 graphics or presentation but whatever, it's a brilliant game. Graphically I personally think it peaked with 96 though the first 2 entries had excellent backrounds

    Not trolling, and I am only referring to the ambient sounds and music. I thought they were really well done and memorable.

    I know I keep an ear out for the ambient sounds when playing KOF, good times.

    94 is for the SNKJorges of the world
    95 is for the wasabis of the world
    96 is for the Lachlans of the world
    97 is for...well, I used to know a guy, who I thought I respected...maybe he's OK now...but it's for him and his kind, and the music-less backgrounds and that one Disney-background

    King of Fighters, man. God bless SNK. They pumped one out every year. Good or bad, I'm glad they all exist.

    KOF97 is one of my favorite KOFs. Agreed on the music and sound effects, Rhythmic Hallucination is great. Also really like Orochi Chris and the Orochi team in general.

    Yeah, I'm amused by the idea of a shockbox for a Vita game, of all things. Fifty bucks, though? They didn't even throw in a soundtrack CD like every other Special Limited Collectors Super Exclusive Boob Mousepad Nerdbait Edition does these days.
