Ignition Entertainment and SNK Playmore announced today that The King of Fighters XII will be released worldwide in July 2009 on Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3.
The legendary 3-on-3 fighting game series that united rival brawlers from SNK Playmore's classic arcade franchises celebrates its 15th Anniversary in style with the release of The King of Fighters XII.
"Our development slogan for KOFXII is 'KOF Re-Birth' and we've aimed to create an entirely new King of Fighters game. To make this a truly unique fighting game, we've revolutionized the graphics by creating state of the art visuals - and made no compromises in that process whatsoever," said Masaaki Kukino, SNK Playmore.
"I couldn't think of a more appropriate way to commemorate The King of Fighter's 15-Year Anniversary than with a gorgeously animated, high-definition installment that updates the KOF legacy for a new generation." said Shane Bettenhausen, New Business Development Director of Ignition Entertainment. "While other fighting games have abandoned the time-consuming process of creating beautiful 2D art, KOFXII fully embraces the refined aesthetic beauty that only human hands can produce."
