      1.2 Game Review
           Well, KOF EX: Neo Blood is a special edition for GameBoy
         Advanced, however is only a new remake of KOF 99 plus a new boss
         and a new character in Hero Team. The graphics are the same than
         KOF 99 including the stages, except the Hero and Geese stages.
           The sound isn't good, but...what do you want? is a GB.
      1.3 Hero Team Story (Prologue)
         Was taken from SAMMYZONE(http://www.sammy-zone.com/kof/story.html)
       A cloudy sky draped an ailing and grubby city. Sitting before a 
      broken window frame, Kyo Kusanagi looked vacantly at the streets 
      below. Suddenly, energetic footsteps were heard coming up the stairs.
      "Hey! You alive in there?" called a female voice through the door. 
      Into the apartment walked a young girl who looked like Kyo. She was
      wearing a big smile and dyed hair. Glancing at her, Kyo gave a
      chiding remark.
      "Don't you knock before entering a person's house? Huh?" 
      "Don't cop an attitude with me, eh?" the girl fumed. "I went to the
       trouble to bring you some food. And I'm the one who got this room
       for you, aren't I?"
      Kyo screwed up his face as if smelling something bad and closed his
      "Surly as ever, I see," she frowned. Sighing and shrugging her
       shoulders, the girl noticed a white envelope on the table next to
       the groceries and picked it up casually.
      "What's this?" 
      "Hey! Wait. Stop it!" ordered Kyo. 
      Ignoring his request, the girl ripped open the envelope without
      permission and began reading through the message. Shortly after,
      she looked up, appearing excited.
      "This isn't an invitation to KOF is it?" she asked. 
      "Well, yeah," Kyo nodded grudgingly. "How do they always find out
       where I am anyway? Time after time these accursed envelopes always
       reach me."
      "Whatever. Stop whining. This'll get us in, won't it? Woohoo! Lucky!"
       he girl began to dance around the room, ignoring Kyo's grim face.
       He sighed heavily and brushed up his bangs.
      "You said that stuff before," he complained, "but this time are you
       really intending on entering KOF?" 
      "Of course!" she squealed. "The ultimate tournament of fighting
       styles, King of Fighters! I've always wanted to enter. And since
       this invitation has come to you, I have no intention to let this
       opportunity go by!"
      "KOF is not the picnic you envision it to be, you know." 
      "I know that," she said, stomping her foot in defiance."
       You want to see what I'm really capable of, don't you?" 
      "No, I don't. But I'm sure you can handle yourself." 
      "Don't hide your feelings. Anyway, we need one or two more members,
       so let's blow this popsicle stand!" 
      "Who put you in charge?" Kyo mixed his sigh with a painful smirk on
       his face. He knew he wouldn't be able to turn down her request.
       Earning money through street fighting, this girl -Moe Habana-
       had managed to find this apartment for him to live in and looked
       after his every need. Even though she had the petulance of a young
       girl, Kyo was obligated to honor her wishes.
      "Kyo, I guess I can't leave you alone," she smiled demurely. 
      "What do you mean by that? Can't resist me, eh? I'll say this,
       though, as far as Japan's!" 
      "Get serious, jerk." 
      A hot dog from the lunch Moe had bought was suddenly headed for
      Kyo's face. Kyo caught it, took a hungry bite, and then stared at
      the tame expression on Moe's face. 
      "True. The first time I met you, I did feel a shock of excitement,"
      she admitted. "But not anymore." 
      "Not anymore... Hmm." 
      Kyo had that same feeling. At the time, he'd thought it had resulted
      from meeting a kindred soul in a foreign land. If he had met Moe
      before, he would not have been able to forget this slightly
      self-centered, cheerful young woman. In a brief instant, after the
      two fell silent, a voice of a young man came from the door.
      "Well, well. Look's like I'm intruding, am I?" the visitor called out.
      "Benimaru!" cried Kyo. 
      "Looking good, Kyo," Benimaru grinned. 
      Leaning against the opened door, Benimaru Nikaido, the genius shooter
      who had fought his way through many a KOF tournament with Kyo on the
      same team, gave his old teammate a friendly wink.
      "Benimaru. Your timing's impeccable as always," replied Kyo. 
      "Timing, shmiming. It's one thing to summon a person, but you should
      have at least picked me up at the train station. Thanks to you, I had
      to mix things up with an irate taxi driver."
      "Sounds right. You can't expect to meet a friendly taxi driver in
       this part of town." 
      As if assessing each other's abilities, Kyo and Benimaru lightly
      butted their fists together in place of a handshake. Staring at the
      two out of the corner of her eyes, Moe cleared her throat loudly to
      call attention to herself.
      "Kyo, aren't you going to introduce me?" she inquired. "We are
       teammates, after all." 
      "Teammates?" asked Benimaru. Hearing this, Benimaru casually pushed
       his long lost pal Kyo aside and flashed his most handsome smile
       while making his way toward Moe. "I've heard our third team member
       was not decided on yet, but... you intent to join us? Really?" 
      "Do you doubt my abilities?" asked Moe. 
      "Quite the contrary. Only a fool would assume a woman to be weak on
      account of her sex. I welcome all beautiful women. And if you're
      strong, too, well, welcome to the team. Benimaru Nikaido, at your
      "I'm Moe Habana. I'm Japanese, by birth. The pleasure's all yours." 
      "Moe, eh? I'm looking forward to KOF this year," smiled Benimaru. 
      "You never change, do you?" sighed Kyo. 
      Watching the ladykiller do his dirty work, Kyo felt disgust for
      Benimaru. But with Benimaru by his side, the realization that KOF
      was about to begin was becoming more concrete. His period of avoiding
      his real battle was drawing to a close. This brought about a slight
      feeling of tension... and an even more palpable feeling of elation.
      Along with this, Kyo knew that his nemesis would most certainly be
      waiting for him at KOF. Regardless of proof, Kyo felt it for sure in
      his gut.
      "If I'm alive here, he, too, will not have died so easily," mumbled 
       Kyo under his breath. 
      As Moe and Benimaru continued talking together as if they were old
      acquaintances, Kyo stared vacantly at the cheerful couple and felt
      very alone.
      "When I first met her, I knew I felt it," he thought. "Something was
      there. I knew we've met before."
