The King of Fighters NeoWave was released in July 2004 in Japan.
The characters' graphics, moves and sounds are very close from those of "The King of Fighters 2002 - Challenge to Ultimate Battle".
As in the previous episodes, the characters are controlled with 2 punches buttons and 2 kicks buttons but also an additional button for the activation of the new 'Heat mode', which strengthen your character's attacks but on the same time drain his life.
Button configuration and software settings can be changed to answer the needs of all types of locations.
Leona, Ralph and Clark are playable characters in the Foma 90x Series Mobile Phones game 'Metal Slug Survivors'.
