The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match (KOF 02 UM) is a remake of the classic dream match, The King of Fighters 2002: Challenge to Ultimate Battle. Just like its former version, there is no story in this game, thus allowing SNK to once again add characters who were long dead or missing in the previous story arc.

KOF 02 UM boasts a huge roster of 66 playable characters. 43 characters from KOF 2002 return (with the exception of K9999) and in addition, there are 3 EX characters, 12 new NESTS characters, 7 new bosses, and an original character "called" Nameless.

The game also received a system overhaul, including tweaks to character balance, new moves, new DMs, changed properties, re-arranged inputs, new stages for all teams and bosses, new re-done theme songs, and new character art and HUD. All while staying true to the core 3-on-3 system which should cater to old KOF purists and newcomers alike.
