'King Of Fighters XIII' (ALL) Coming To North America - Screens

by Rainier on June 8, 2011 @ 5:18 p.m. PDT

With the triumphant return of fan favorite characters like Mai, K', and Vice, extensive refinement of the core fighting engine based on community feedback, and vastly improved network functionality, The King Of Fighters XIII represents the HD entry in the series that fans have been waiting for.

With a roster featuring over 30 hand-drawn fighters, a number of detailed stages bursting with life, over a half dozen play modes, a refined fighting engine built for speed and complete with new moves and supers, a vastly improved Online mode, and a host of other additions, tweaks, and enhancements, King Of Fighters XIII  represents a rebirth for one of gaming's longest tenured franchises and one of the most popular fighting brands ever.

Painstaking effort has been made to address every last concern following the last entry: fights play faster; the addition of over a half dozen play modes offers variety and replayability; the game's beautifully rendered and animated character sprites are better distinguished from the backgrounds-which happen to be richer and more detailed; the camera perspective is less restricted; fighters have more moves, including new supers and the all-new NEOMAX supers; and much, much more!

"We are excited to work with ATLUS to bring  King Of Fighters XIII  to North America," stated Ryo Mizufune, President of SNK PLAYMORE.  "Fans have waited patiently for an HD iteration in the series that could live up to the proud tradition of classics like  KOF '98.  We view  KOF XIII as an opportunity to deliver a high definition  KOF game that meets and exceeds fan expectations.  We have worked very hard to listen to all of their concerns and suggestions, to incorporate all of their feedback and ideas, and we hope that  XIII becomes one of their favorite games in the series."
