Currently celebrating its twelfth year as one of the most popular fighting video game franchises in the history of gaming, The King of Fighters Maximum Impact 2, aka KOF 2006, will continue to build on the series' rich history with several new characters, as well as many returning favorites.

This time, produced by the acclaimed SNK artist and designer, Falcoon – KOFMI2 has built upon and enhanced the frantic gameplay of the original, as well as adding a number of new and exciting features.

The character roster has been ramped up to 24 characters now selectable from the start, but there are many new hidden characters waiting to be found, including some fan favourites making a surprise return.

The Fighting system has also been reworked. The familiar control from the first game has been improved, and with the new additions of SUPER CANCEL and COUNTERSTRIKE, KOFMI2 will offer a new and truly rounded fighting experience.

Along with the completely redesigned Graphics and enhanced game mechanics, KOFMI2 also offers many varied modes to keep the player coming back for more, by awarding many hidden items for those who can complete the challenges.
