The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match Final Edition (KOF 98 UMFE) is the final patch for KOF 98 UM, the remake of KOF 98.
KOF 98 UMFE has a large roster of 64 characters with several new characters and EX variants, and features very drastic changes from the original 98, such as the addition of Ultimate Mode (on top of Advanced and Extra) which lets you pick and choose mechanics from either of the two modes, a buffed and reworked Extra Mode, the ability to shorten the recovery of moves and specials by activating into max mode during them, known as Quick Max (exclusive to Extra/charge power gauge), a rebalancing of the entire cast, and the removal of the mood system.
Despite it being a very different game, UMFE also includes the original 98 in its "NEOGEO Mode", making this package the culmination of classic-style KOF.
