These days SNK doesn’t make as many new games. If SNK had to rely solely on games to keep them afloat the King of Fighters XII would be on a shoestring budget. Fortunately, only part of their revenue comes from Neo Geo compilations and niche DS titles like Doki Doki Majo Shinpan. SNK also makes a pretty penny from pachislot machines.
This January the two revenue streams become one when the King of Fighters: Maximum Impact pachislot machine pops into pachinko parlors in Japan. The King of Fighters: Maximum Impact pachislot machine puts players in a “battle tournament” and you earn a bonus when you “beat” or get the right combination of reels. Duke is waiting for you at the end, but before you get to him you have to fight Chae Lim, Maxima, K, and Lien.
