Sorry hardcore fighter fans, but Atlus today announced a wee bit of a delay for the release of The King Of Fighters XIII. The game is now set to launch for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on November 22. But hey, they also released this trailer that highlights some of the new features, some new characters, and crazy-ass moves.
"While fans will initially be disappointed by the news that THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII is slightly delayed, the additional time will ensure that the game delivers on its promise of becoming the finest entry in the series' 15+ year history," commented Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ATLUS. "KOF fans have tremendous expectations for this title, as do we. Our commitment is to nothing less than the very best THE KING OF FIGHTERS game ever, and all of our efforts and resources are dedicated to assisting developer SNK PLAYMORE to that end."
Obviously, it sucks when a game is delayed, but at the same time, hopefully it's being made even better. Plus, it gives you more time to pre-order KOFXIII and get the bonus 4-CD soundtrack compilation that I wrote about a while back!
