This week in the Greatest Game Art Ever, we're paying tribute to one of the most beloved fighting game series in the world, King of Fighters

While most people might be more familiar with series like Tekken and Street Fighter, King of Fighters is also just as revered, although it may not be so readily recognized by those who aren't fighting game aficinados. But suffice it to say that KOF provides an excellent 2D fighting experience, complete with interesting characters and gorgeous sprites that look like art come to life at just the right frame rates.

In the gallery above, we have fan favorites like Mai Shiranui, K' and Terry Bogard. It's our hope that SNK will release another iteration soon, since the last core King of Fighters game we got was The King of Fighters XIII back in 2010. We'll just have to peruse this gallery in the meantime in order to sate ourselves.
