Boy, Atlus is sure in an announcin' mood today… oh wait, it's E3. How could I forget? The publisher's latest announcement is not something from the Shin Megami Tensei series, but the latest fighter from SNK Playmore, King of Fighters XIII.
Fan favorite characters like Mai, K' and Vice are making a return along with an extensive refinement of the series' core fighting engine. Said refinement actually stems from community feedback, so perhaps YOU played a role in the way KoFXIII has been shaped from its inception. Fights are faster, over half a dozen play modes are available, and the visuals have been tweaked to better distinguish the game's gorgeous sprites from the backdrops.
See for yourself in the screens below. King of Fighters XIII is currently scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 this holiday season.
