The jaw-droppingly gorgeous The King of Fighter XIII is making a comeback on PS4, publisher SNK Playmore confirmed during the EVO Japan championships earlier today. Originally released in Japanese arcades all the way back in 2010, before being ported to the PS3 worldwide a year later, this new version of the iconic brawler will feature rollback netcode, for flawless online performance.
There’s no release date for the port right now, but an open beta test is scheduled to take place on the PS4 this summer. You can check out an initial teaser trailer embedded above, with more information set to follow in the coming months.
One of the best games in the series.
Very cool! I have the PS3 version. To be honest I am not a fan of 2 vs 2 or 3 vs 3 fighters, but this game is very well made.
Just a friendly reminder that SNK is wholly owned by the Saudi Arabia government, who are responsible for human rights abuses, restricting the lives of women, and murdering journalists.
Do whatever you want with this information. I’m not judging anyone for buying SNK games even after considering this info. I love the King of Fighters series myself, and it sucks that I can’t in good conscience buy the games and support the developers! Your choice is your own. Thank-you. 😔
Not believing anything announced on April 1.
Funny thing is, Sammy, "Mai" is pronounced "My" not "May" so the pun doesn't work - and yet actually it does since you're a Brummie and it accidentally produces a Brummie accent. "My the Force be with you." 😂
I’m glad a lot of Japanese games are skipping Xbox. it’s good to see that Japanese developers know they’re worth and not selling themselves into a subscription service.
Wait?! That wasn't an April Fool?
Saw this on Gematsu yesterday morning. Right before I was going to buy the physical PS3 version, too.
it’s a good time to be a fighting game fan
One of the best 2D visuals in a FG ever.
@Impossibilium The lithium in the battery of the phone you used to post this was mined by hand by children in slave labor camps. The world is an evil place full of wicked humans, we're all complicit, there's literally nothing you can do about it.
Cha Cha! Bad vs Evil in the comments section.
@Saitama117 You are absolutely right. It is nearly 100% impossible to be completely ethical in the current world we live in.
Which is why I said that I place no judgement on the people who buy SNK games or have bought Hogwart’s Legacy. Just because buying those games goes past my ethical boundaries — due to the more direct way that awful people benefit from them — I totally understand how it might not affect others in the same way.
I know that it seems hypocritical to speak out about not buying a couple of video games, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the innumerable injustices I ignore when I buy any product from a major corporation. As long as power and profits are treated as more important than empathy and humanity, there is not much that one individual can do to change things.
But just because I know that what I do will have little effect on the world at large, it doesn’t mean that I must give up hope that things can change. Maybe one day enough people will care enough to bring about that change.
