The King of Fighters '94: Re-bout is a remake of The King of Fighters '94 for the Playstation 2. It released on December 28, 2004 in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the KOF series. The game features high-definition sprites in 3D backgrounds, a newer design layout, on-line gaming, and an new animated intro. Illustrations for this game were also made by Hiroaki. Most of the gaming mechanics and story remain the same as the original. Several characters in the King of Fighters series (as well as strikers in The King of Fighters 2000) also make anachronistic appearances in the game's new backgrounds.
Lucky owners could also collect KOF 10th Anniversary pinky figurines of Mai and Athena with their purchase.
According to a recent interview, the overall negative fan feedback from these high-definition sprites lead to the idea of creating brand new ones for The King of Fighters XII.
Unlike the original, players can now edit their teams to their own liking.
Fatal Fury Team (Italy)
Psycho Soldier Team (China)
Ikari Warriors Team (Brazil)
Women Fighters Team (England)
Art of Fighting Team (Mexico)
Boss characters are now selectable at the start of the game.
