King of Fighters R-1 is a fighting game for the Neo Geo Pocket. It's based on The King of Fighters '97. This title is one of the many titles released on October 28, 1998. It was followed by King of Fighters R-2.

Plot

The game shares the same storyline as The King of Fighters '97, taking place after the events of The King of Fighters '96. Unlike the normal game, which has 10 teams, this game has only 5 teams.

Overview

Using the Japanese "SD" (Super-Deformed) artwork style, the KOF Series makes your debut in SNK's monochrome handheld bringing the same gameplay characteristics found in its arcade/console counter-part The King of Fighters '97, like the possibility of choose between two game modes (Advanced or Extra), an identical adaptation of the battle stages, the chance to battle against Leona and Iori in their Orochi-versions and the same storyline involving the New Faces Team (Yashiro Nanakase, Shermie and Chris), that are using the tournament to accumulate enough energy to wake up his supreme master: Orochi.
