Released in 1999, Garou: Mark of the Wolves is the most recent game in SNK's Fatal Fury series. Considered by many to be SNK's answer to Capcom's Street Fighter 3 series, not entirely because of the game's sudden dramatic change in roster (Only Terry Bogard was carried through from previous titles). Ports of Garou are available for the Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, XBOX 360 as well as the Neo-geo AES home console and MVS arcade hardware. As of 2017, the game was ported to the PS4 with online support.
The overall feel of Garou is far more in line with Capcom's fighters than any of SNK's other fighting games. The game is frequently recommended to Capcom fans looking for an SNK game to try. If you've had difficulty adjusting to the King of Fighters series, Garou may be much more to your liking.
Set ten years after the death of the notorious crime lord Geese Howard, the city of Southtown has become more peaceful. Now, the stage is in the neighboring city of Second Southtown. A new fighting tournament called "King of Fighters: Maximum Mayhem" starts in the area, and several characters related with the fighters from the old era of King of Fighters tournaments participate within it.
