A special Dreamcast conversion of KOF '98 (NOT '99) with several additions for Sega's console. The game remains the same as the original arcade version, but now includes new backgrounds (some with some polygonal enhancements) and a series of complementary bonus materials like conceptual galleries, sound test modes, etc.

Coming out just a few months before The King of Fighters: Evolution, this game was made in very limited numbers so it is a very hard find and sort of a collector's item.

Version differences

The game sports a animé opening sequence which introduces every character in standard videoclip fashion. Now, in the original Japanese version, King (the female blonde from AOF) is seen drinking a glass of wine and smirking. On the US version this was replaced with a still frame of her simply holding the glass.
