King Of Fighters XIII is happening
It's a real video game. It was announced in Tokyo this week, alongside a slew of screenshots (Kotaku's got your back) and word of the return of Mai Shiranui - every fan's big-boobed favourite. The game'll no doubt make it's way over to the Playstation 3 at some point. Anyone excited? We thought King Of Fighters XII was decent, but severely lacking in content.
King Of Fighters XII was ok, but kind of a let-down
Let's hope then, that SNK Playmore can hit the jackpot with King Of Fighters XIII - which was announced last night. Aside from the game running on the Taito Taito X2 hardware system, details are scant. We're sure there will be more in the coming weeks.

Yay - beat 'em ups are back
Most notably, King Of Fighters is back; for it's, erm, 12th iteration. Which means a new game with a new box! Of which it's up to us to decide on the cover. There are two choices available. If you'd like to vote, head here. We know which one we prefer and it starts with "Option" and ends in "2".
Remember when no one cared about beat 'em up games
Well they're back. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Street Fighter IV have secured that. But what after that? Well, this July we'll all be playing as Terry Bogard in old favourite King Of Fighters.
