Many contended that the illegal
fighting tournament in Southtown was sponsored by the gangland syndicate
"Mephistopheles" to achieve the annihilation of their rivals and
procure some operating capital. After its "King," Duke, suffered
defeat at the hands of Alba Meira in the finals, he and his organization
vanished from Southtown. Meanwhile, the media, firmly under Duke's control,
released a fusillade of sensational exposes based on information from
confidential sources regarding their former oppressors. In spite of this new
torrent of "information," almost no one knew that an even larger
entity had been pulling Mephistopheles' puppet strings.
The truth behind the Addes
organization name was only known throughout the dark recesses of the underworld.
No one really had an inkling as to what this organization truly entailed. Now,
another of Addes was to reveal a new battle royale. Invitations in white
envelopes were sent to the world's mightiest, who will find the call to the
battle by Addes irresistible. As stated in
Alba Meira's private novel by Akihiko Ureshino on the official KOF Maximum
Impact 2 site (which serves as an official follow up to the story of KOF
Maximum Impact 2) Alba was in fact the one who defeated Jivatma and Luise.
Soiree was kidnapped as a result of that and Alba has not seen him since then.
of Fighters: Maximum Impact Regulation A is an update to Maximum
Impact 2, featuring new characters, and tuned gameplay. It was released for
the Taito Type-X2 arcade system in July 2007 and was the only arcade
release in the entire Maximum Impact series. It was ported to Playstation
2 only in Japan.
definitive version of the Maximum Impact series. (Look at Hanzo. lol.)
Crimson and Blue Mary join
the line-up, and overall add some much appreciated personality to the game. They are accompanied by Mizoguchi from Fighters History and a
Lon. In addition, the overpowered (and lame) Armor
Ralf was also removed from the roster... THANK YOU SNK! Besides the four new
characters, the main difference of Regulation A over its predecessor is the
return of KOF's classic 3-on-3 gameplay. Story Mode, Challenge Mode, and
several stages from Maximum Impact 2 were also removed.
I've never played Regulation A since it didn't
release in America and I don't have a modded PS2. I actually remember walking
right by it when I was in Hong Kong, but didn't have enough time to sit down and
play it long enough to "review" it... so I didn't bother. (I kinda
wish I tried it out though). I don't think I'm missing too
much... but I still hope to play it one of these days. ~TFG
