Been feeling some 90’s fighter nostalgia since Capcom announced the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection? Then Hamster Co. may have just the thing for you: a rerelease of of The King of Fighters ’96 on Nintendo Switch! The classic NEOGEO fighter is releasing tomorrow under the ACA NEOGEO banner, although the price is currently unknown.

The third entry in SNK’s The King of Fighters series, the ’96 edition includes 27 playable characters and introduced certain mechanics such as Emergency evasion, short/mid-hops and charging your POW bar. The in-game narrative focuses on the Orochi saga’s second chapter, introducing such faces like Wolfgang Krauser and Mr. Big. Naturally, the game retained all the explosive action and excellent animation it was known for.
