The King of Fighters '95 is a fighting game originally released on the Neo-Geo system in 1995 and later ported to the Game Boy released in America and Japan in 1996 as well in Europe in 1997. The Game Boy version was published by Takara in Japan and Nintendo in America. The game features downsized graphics from its console counterparts, but nonetheless they managed to impress with some detailed characters that had the spirit of the original. When played on a Super Game Boy, the graphics are enhanced and the border has a King of Fighters theme to it. The Neo Geo version of this game is also available on the Wii Virtual Console and the Nintendo Switch.

Because the console version made use of all four of the controllers' buttons, the developer Aspect faced a problem. What they did was make light button taps weak and button presses where you hold onto the button a little longer stronger.
