Features of The King Of Fighters Memorial Special Edition 2012




Gameplay Mechanics




KOFM SE 2012 utilizes traditional gameplay mechanics found in most of the current KOF games, such as:


Runs, Rolls, Short Jumps, Guard Cancels, Quick Emergency Rolls, Super Cancels, and Dream Cancels




These are basic maneuvers that allow players to move around the screen, dodge attacks, counterattack, and chain special moves into more powerful ones.


Extinction: A Higher Level of HSDM




HSDM stands for Hidden Super Desperation Move, which is a type of super move that can only be performed when the powerbar is full and flashing. Extinction is an even higher level of HSDM that can only be performed by some boss-characters or those who have power bars that exceed 3 levels. Extinction moves are very powerful and flashy, and usually involve unleashing a massive amount of energy or summoning something devastating.


Powerbar Charging




This is a feature that allows players to charge their powerbar by holding down two buttons. This feature was present in some of the older KOF games, but was removed in later ones. In KOFM SE 2012, all standard characters can charge their powerbar, but most boss-characters or those whose bar exceeds 3 levels cannot.


Characters




KOFM SE 2012 has a large roster of characters from various SNK franchises, as well as some original ones. The characters are divided into teams or single entries, and each team has its own storyline and ending. Some characters are also mid-bosses, sub-bosses, or final bosses that appear at certain points in the game. Some characters are also NPC (non-playable characters) that appear only in cutscenes or dialogues. Some characters are also unlockable or DLC (downloadable content) that can be obtained by completing certain conditions or paying extra money.
