bump because this thread doesn't deserve to be ignored. Is everyone just withholding their answers so as not to spoil it for anyone else or what? :x

40. The King of Fighters XI introduced which of the following new features?

I know KOF 2003 isn't that great a game and all, but pretending it doesn't exist isn't fair for trivia questions. :p

(Jhun appears in KOF 2003, and 2003 was the first game to use Leader DM's)
