After almost a 4 year break The King of Fighters is back, completely hand drawn and displayed in full high def glory this game is certainly going to be something fighter fans (including myself) are going to be on the look out for, check out the trailer below.
KOF XII has 20 playable characters, which while sounds like a lot is actually the lowest amount ever in a KOF game. SNK Playmore blamed this on the amount of effort required to be put into making the HD sprite work. It’s disappointing that the character rooster has been culled back so much but here’s hoping the quality can outweigh the lack of quantity.
With Street Fighter IV released already KOF XII is definetly going to make 2009 one of the best fighter years in history.
