If you wanted to play King of Fighters on the road, what could you do? Put an arcade machine on wheels and pull it around? Hook up a battery to a Neo-Geo home unit, carry it in a backpack, and hook it up to a Game Gear with a TV tuner? Or would you just settle for the cheesy Game Boy version? You don't have to — now, King of Fighters R2 has exploded onto the super-cute Neo Geo Pocket Color!
All of your favorite fighters have made their way onto the small screen, from the hyper-bouncy Mai Shiranui to the strapping Terry Bogard. Check out newcomers like the vicious Kasumi Todoh and Leona, and quail in terror of the new Extra Power Gauges!
Aside from new "Blow Away Attacks" and "Power MAX Activates," King of Fighters R2 also features a link-up mode so you can hook up your Neo-Geo Pocket Color to your Dreamcast for cross-platform abilities. Train and equip your fighter on the handheld, then take your friends to school on the big screen! The "Making" mode allows you to customize the fighters to your own particular style — with over fifty modifiers, there's virtually limitless replay value.
With bright, colorful graphics, and tried-and-true King of Fighters gameplay, R2 will keep you brawling until you run out of battery life! ~ Colin Williamson, All Game Guide
