Power Instinct Matrimelee, known in Japan as Shin Gouketsuji Ichizoku: Toukon Matrimelee or simply just known as Matrimelee, is the fifth installment in the series. It is notably different from the previous games in that it was developed by the company Noise Factory, who purchased the rights to develop games for the series and had previously worked on such games as Sengoku 3 and Rage of the Dragons, both of which were made for the Neo Geo.
Despite this, the series is still technically Atlus’ property, hence why the company’s name appears in the title screen. It was one of the last games created for the Neo Geo MVS board and it’s console, and was released by SNK Playmore, who were known simply as “Playmore” at the time. It was the first game in the series to be made after 6 years. Matrimelee was released for both the arcade and the Neo-Geo home console in 2003.
