King of Fighters - collection of all ten games on Neo Geo AES
Last updated on April 7, 2013, 21:43 by Sebastian Mihai
I have recently completed my King of Fighters collection on Neo Geo AES (all ten games, ranging from KOF 94 to KOF 2003). I remembered that I had been looking for King of Fighters history-type videos before, but never found one that showed how the series evolved. I decided to make a video which includes openings, photographs of the AES games, and in-game footage for all ten titles. The music is from various titles between 94 and 2003.

I believe the series is important to the Neo Geo platform because it shows SNK's (the maker of Neo Geo) astounding energy and dedication - releasing a game every year as part of a series is a serious commitment!
