Rising Star Games Reveals Their Q4 2011 Line-up

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Rising Star Games, the publisher known for bringing Deathsmiles to Europe, has announced their release schedule for the final months of 2011. The two that Xbox 360 players will be most interested in is The King of Fighters XIII and DoDonPachi Resurrection.

SNK PLAYMORE's King of Fighters XIII is first up. The game will feature fighters from the entire history of the 2D fighting series; fan favourite Mai returns as one of over 30 characters to choose from. In recognition of the disappoint caused by the let-down of The King of Fighters XII, the game has received new NEO MAX super special moves, faster gameplay, "refined visuals & in-game camera (perspective)", and optimised net code ready for global online play - all just in time for the Ash Saga storyline to reach its conclusion.

Here are the most recently released screenshots, and the most recent trailer can be found here:

CAVE's DoDonPachi Resurrection is the fifth DonPachi game, and is the port of DoDonPachi Resurrection (JP), which was released in Japan last year. Converted directly from the arcade version, the game sees the DonPachi Corps return to action as players fight hundreds of enemies in HD resolution, all while dodging thousands of bullets in a bid to stay alive. Unless you can string long combos together by dashing from enemy to enemy, you'll need more practice before you see your scores reach the heights of the leaderboards.

The game will be released in a deluxe edition, which will feature three different modes of gameplay and the game's soundtrack. Rising Star has also promised that the Black Label arrange mode will be available for download as DLC on the day of release.

This game also receives the screenshot treatment:
