With Gals’ Fighters out and Samurai Shodown! 2 coming soon, the next NeoGeo Pocket Color game coming to Nintendo Switch this summer will be King of Fighters R-2, AKA one of the best games on the system.

I enjoyed R-2's “Making Mode,” that let you win random “skills” after fights which can be equipped to change how your character plays. It’s all very mysterious, with sparse English and clipped, 7-char skill names.
20+ years later GameFAQs’ Making Mode FAQ, the only English documentation I’ve seen, is still incomplete. What mysteries still lurk in that tiny ROM?
