SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters XIII
has been available at retail for just over two weeks now. However, a lot of gamers who picked up The King of Fighters XII
have been hesitant to pick up the latest instalment due to the questionable quality of the former. Now you can try out the latest game to see if it is worth your hard-earned cash. The demo is currently exclusive to Gold Xbox LIVE members and can be downloaded from here
. The demo will be available to Free Xbox LIVE members from December 15th.
Consume your enemies with the flames of wrath until they turn into ashes! “THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII” comes to Xbox 360 as the ultimate versus fighting game, in an upgraded version of the original arcade game! Discover “Billy Kane” and “Saiki (Human Form)” console-exclusive additional characters that KOF fans surely cannot afford to miss, KOF XIII’s “Story Mode”, displayed as a visual novel (revealing numerous episodes unknown up until now), the high-quality “Online Versus Mode” for intense battles with other players via Xbox LIVE, a “Tutorial Mode” that even KOF novice players can enjoy, and many more game modes for thousands of hours of fun! However, it’s not finished yet! More additional content will be available to download at a later date such as “Iori with the Power of Flames” and more downloadable characters!? The final chapter of the “Ash Saga”, full of anger and betrayal, ends here!!
As a side note, KOF XIII
received DLC last Tuesday. On that day, the "Unlock Billy, Saiki (Human Form)" shortcut DLC was only available in North America. After making a brief appearance worldwide, this DLC has now been removed from all regional marketplaces. Hopefully this DLC will return soon.
