The legendary 3-on-3 fighting game series that united rival brawlers from SNK Playmore’s classic arcade franchises celebrates its 15th Anniversary in style with the release of The King of Fighters XII. For the first time in its history, this epic martial arts showdown has undergone a complete graphical overhaul. The antiquated character sprites used over the past 14 years have been dropped in favour of all-new, high-resolution fighters fluidly animating across painstakingly detailed, 100% hand-drawn backgrounds.
Many fan favourites such as Terry Bogard, Robert Garcia, Ash Crimson, Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami make a welcome return, along with two new additions to the home console version of the title – Elisabeth and Mature.
Online support for both formats allows players from around the world to battle it out to see who is truly the ‘KING’ of the fighters. Online Rankings and Voice chat are also supported.
Currently available in North America, Ignition Entertainment's The King of Fighters XII is coming to Europe on Sept. 25, 2009.
