KOF: MAXIMUM IMPACT is the first fully 3D KOF title, and the first to be designed specifically for the PS2, rather than the arcade.
The company will be supporting the upcoming blockbuster release with a massive marketing campaign that includes national television and magazine advertising, premium packaging, bonus pack-ins, a limited edition Terry Bogard hat, and a special November sweepstakes in conjunction with World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE).
THE KING OF FIGHTERS is one of the most popular fighting game series in video games since its inception in 1994, and KOF: MAXIMUM IMPACT will truly be one of the most revolutionary chapters in this franchise's storied history.
KOF: MAXIMUM IMPACT will feature the most popular KOF characters such as Terry Bogard and Kyo Kusanagi all rendered in 3D. The game will also feature several brand new characters to the franchise and a wide assortment of detailed battlegrounds and fighting maneuvers.
"KOF: MAXIMUM IMPACT is the perfect synthesis of breathtaking 3D animation with the heart and soul of a classic 2D fighter." said Ben Herman, SNK NEOGEO USA CONSUMER CORPORATION President. "The fans have been so supportive of the series over the past decade, and we are confident they will love the game and all the bonus materials."
