King of Fighters XIII brawls its way into Xbox 360, PS3 this year
The legendary series returns to form this Holiday.
ATLUS today announced that it has secured North American publishing rights for THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII, the latest entry in the legendary fighting franchise, for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
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. 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 THE 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.”
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII is scheduled to release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems during the 2011 Holiday Season. For more info, visit http://www.atlus.com/kofxiii.
