The The King of Fighters 2000 wiki last edited by ReverendHunt on 04/14/13 02:30PM View full history

Overview

The King of Fighters 2000 is a 2D 3-on-3 fighting game developed and published by SNK for the Neo Geo. It is the seventh installment of the King of Fighters series and is the final King of Fighters game by the original SNK before the company became financially bankrupt. The story continues from The King of Fighters '99, as commander Heidern uses the King of Fighters tournament (with the aid of his friend, Ling, who has his own secret agenda) to lure protagonists K' and Maxima out so they could be interrogated into telling the whereabouts of the evil NESTS syndicate.
 
The Hero team from the previous installment was split into two teams: the Hero team and the Benimaru team, each including new characters, such as the mercenary Vanessa, the Mexican wrestler Ramon, the agent Seth, and the assassin Lin. Blue Mary and King from the Women Fighters team are swapped with Mai Shiranui and Yuri Sakazaki of the Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting team. Li Xiangfei from the Women Fighters team was replaced by the new Hinako Shijo. Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami are playable with no team association, with Kyo's clones absent. A new character and sub-boss, Kula Diamond (the "Anti-K'"), debuts in this installment.
 
The game also features unique alternate Strikers based on characters from either earlier installments of the King of Fighters series, from other SNK franchises, or completely new conceptual versions of characters. (Such as alternate costumes for K' and Iori)
