THE RETURN OF THE KING: ATLUS TO PUBLISH THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII IN NORTH AMERICA
The legendary series returns to form.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 7, 2011 - 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 (PS3™) 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.
