The King of Fighters features characters from multiple SNK franchises, chiefly Art of Fighting and Fatal Fury, but also Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldier, plus some unique to this franchise. In The King of Fighters '95, players pick teams of three, which compete against other teams of three before taking on two bosses; a brainwashed Saisyu Kusanagi and Omega Rugal. Unlike the previous game, The King of Fighters '94, players can put any three characters together in a team.
Originally released for the Neo Geo MVS and AES systems, The King of Fighters '95 was subsequently brought to the Neo Geo CD and then the PlayStation and Saturn. The two latter conversions stem from the Neo Geo CD version, which includes a few very minor differences an arranged soundtrack.
With the use of the Twin Advanced ROM System, the Saturn version is able to retain the vast majority of content from its Neo Geo counterpart (as opposed to the PlayStation, which is forced to cut some background animations). It also leads to significantly faster load times than both the Neo Geo CD and the PlayStation, though these still pale in comparison to the arcade game.
