The King of Fighters 98: The Slugfest, known in Japan as The King of Fighters ’98: Dream Match Never Ends, is a fighting game released by SNK for the Neo Geo arcade and home consoles in 1998. It is the fifth game in The King of Fighters series. It was advertised by SNK as a “special edition” of the series, as it featured most of the characters who appeared in the previous games (from KOF ’94 to ’97).

KOF ’98 was ported to the Neo-Geo CD in 1998 and for the PlayStation in Japan in 1999. A Dreamcast version titled The King of Fighters: Dream Match 1999 was released in 1999, featuring backgrounds remade in 3D. The game was also remade for the PlayStation 2 as The King of Fighters ’98: Ultimate Match, which expands the number of playable characters, further tweaks the gameplay and features a third fighting style option.

King of Fighters 98 Gameplay

The gameplay does not differ much from the previous game, KOF ’97. Like in KOF ’97, the player has a choice between two playing styles: Advance and Extra, with a few slight modifications to Advanced mode (unlike in KOF ’97, the character will resume to normal if the player performs a Super Special Move in MAX state).

This time when one character loses a round, the losing team is given a handicap in its favor. In Advanced mode, this means that the player’s stock capacity for Power Gauges is increased by one. In Extra mode, the time it takes to charge one’s power gauge to maximum level is shortened, and the maximum remaining health requirement for a MAX Super Special Move is increased.
