110w ago - Sony Brazil PlayStation Manager Fabio Santana has posted up an interview today on The King of Fighters XIII, which will be hitting the PS3 on November 22, 2011.
To quote: We're truly living a fighting games renaissance. Ever since Street Fighter IV reignited the genre in 2009, we've been getting a number of interesting and diverse fight titles, ranging from the lush visuals of BlazBlue to the air combo extravaganza of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Along the way, we had The King of Fighters XII from SNK Playmore, touted as a "re-birth" of the traditional 3-on-3 series. And although it really gave new life to the franchise with gorgeous hi-def 2D sprite art and sleek animation, the game delivered little in terms of contents.
Two years later, SNK Playmore is hard at work to regain the crown with The King of Fighters XIII for PS3 courtesy of Atlus in the US. And based on the prospects, 13 seems to be the lucky number for KOF.
The game was originally launched in Japanese arcades back in July 2010, being praised by fighting game connoisseurs for its vastly expanded roster (31 playable characters, including the return of fan favorite Mai Shiranui), revised fighting system...
228w ago - Many players have experienced problems (lag in the first place) for the online game The King of Fighters XII by SNK.
The developers, however, claimed to have worked on a patch to improve the stability and quality of online gaming.
This update patch is already available for the PlayStation 3 version of the title, while the Microsoft console update will have to wait awhile as the date of release for the Xbox 360 patch has not yet been confirmed.
Finally, a list of The King of Fighters XII PS3 Trophies is now available, including the Secret PS3 Trophies.
228w ago - Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen has announced that The King of Fighters XII will be igniting PlayStation 3 consoles this week.
To quote: The fighting game gurus at SNK PLAYMORE have finally put the finishing touches on the PLAYSTATION 3 release of The King of Fighters XII, the long-awaited next-generation rebirth of this revered arcade fighting franchise.
The game will be available at retail tomorrow, July 28th, and we here at Ignition Entertainment are thrilled to help bring this all-new hand-drawn 2D fighter to the North American market first.
That's right; U.S. gamers will get their hands on the game before their counterparts in Asia and Europe...so early adopters can train for a few days to hone their skills before facing online challengers from KOF's Japanese homeland.
Series veterans likely already know the franchise's unique history–back in 1994, characters from classic Neo Geo series including Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and Ikari Warriors were brought together to create a unique and revolutionary three-on-three fighting game known simply as The King of Fighters '94.
For the next decade, KOF reigned as one of the most beloved fighting game franchises ever, with annual updates satiating...
237w ago - Today Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen has posted on the PlayStation Blog today news that The King of Fighters XII is due out this summer for the PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: Dedicated KOF fans have been patiently waiting for years to get their hands on a new installment in this legendary franchise. Since its inception 15 years ago, The King of Fighters has served as a ferocious franchise mash-up, gathering characters from classic series such as Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and Ikari Warriors for three-on-three street fighting action.
For years, fans could depend on KOF to deliver a new yearly update sporting a few minor tweaks and new playable characters, but the advent of the HD era demanded a fresh start. KOF XII is precisely that–a total reboot and rebirth that embraces the past while looking towards the future.
The developers at SNK PLAYMORE have worked hard to deliver a next-gen King of Fighters sequel that honors the series' tradition of hand-drawn 2D art and animation while upping the ante with gameplay refinements and fierce online play.
Creating the massive amount of hand-drawn art required to fluidly animate HD-quality character sprites required a small army of artists sketching their hearts out–SNK...
