Flyers for King of Fighters ‘98, and King of Fighters ‘98 UM.

Until relatively recently, KoF‘98, was often heralded as the best game in the series -  KoF98UM was a revision released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this watershed game.

Unfortunately, it was released for the Taito Type X, rather than the Neo-Geo MVS, and therefore was not a SUPER HIGH TECH GAME.
