After recent incidents, involving such characters as Ash Crimson, Iori Yagami, and Kyo Kusanagi, it was feared that the next King of Fighters tournament would never happen. However, thanks to worldwide-sent invitations to fighters and an unheard-of amount of promotion by a mysterious party (led by a figure known as “R”), the new mixed-martial arts tournament is now on the world stage with mass-media coverage like never before.
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, THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII represents a rebirth for one of gaming’s longest tenured franchises and one of the most popular fighting brands ever.
The biggest, best high-definition KOF game yet—With tons of play modes, a refined, faster-paced fighting engine, over 30 beautifully rendered and animated characters (including triumphant returns of fan favorites like Mai Shiranui, K’, and Vice) with a host of new moves—including the all-new NEOMAX supers, and much more, XIII represents the HD entry in the series that fans have been waiting for!
Smooth, stable net functionality with global online play—Challengers can take on opponents anywhere in the world and using KOFXIII’s vastly improved network functionality, bringing to fans an incredibly smooth and stable Online mode.
