In terms of plot, KOF '98: Ultimate March does not have a
story and was developed as a "dream match" with characters from all
previous installments of King of Fighters.
The definitive version of King
of Fighters '98.
Originally featuring a total of 38 characters, The
King of Fighters '98 was no doubt a fan favorite installment to the series
due to the great character roster and quality 2D gameplay. 10 years later, the
Ultimate Match edition of enhances the classic title with 7 new playable characters, special
EX versions of characters not featured in the original version, and several
brand new stages.
One more Powaa Gyssaaaa
for old times sake.
Along with the "Advance" & "Extra" play options from the original, a new "Ultimate" mode is now selectable,
which is a customizable style that lets players choose between features from
Advance or Extra mode, such as which kind of power gauge to use. A "Neo
mode is also available in the package, which is a direct port of the original
Neo Geo console version. The home package of Ultimate Match alsoincludes
Gallery Mode with a variety of classic artwork to browse through.

wasn't even in the original KOF '98!

(Steam - as KOF '98: UM Final Edition)
For a 2D fighting game that's 10 years old, KOF '98 holds up rather well,
but really does look and sound it's age in this high-def era of gaming. For fighting
game fans looking to be "wowed" by graphics
or animation, this game isn't for you... then again, if you've never
checked out the legendary KOF '98, this remake is a great way to
experience the classic and get you acquainted with some of the KOF series'
most iconic characters! For hardcore KOF fans, Ultimate
Match is pretty much a "timeless" and "must own" title. ~TFG
