SNK Playmore has formally revealed the latest edition of their classic fighting series, King of Fighters XIII.
New systems for KOFXIII include EX moves, which convert each characters’ super moves into more powerful versions at the expense of your power gauge. The new Drive Cancel opens up new combo possibilities, allowing you to connect from one super to another. Also new for the game is Hyper Drive Mode, which gives you unlimited use of Drive Cancels for a while once you’ve maxed out your Hyper Drive Gauge.
The game will debut in Japan at famed Akihabara’s and will complete the Ash storyline. There are no announced American arcade releases or home console adaptations, but it’s to be expected. IGN has screenshots and artist’s renders of the game.
