"this is definitely the year of the fighters"

For those lucky enough to attend AOU 2008 on February 16th, SNK Playmore JP and Taito will be displaying King of Fighters XII (Twelve) in video format. KOF XII has been in production for the longest amount of time, compared to any other King of Fighters produced and rightfully so, as SNK Playmore JP decided to start from scratch with a new game engine and completely overhaul the sprites.

King of Fighters XII will first be displayed on Taito's Type X and later ported to Sony's PS3 in 2009, with a possible release on the Xbox 360 in the same year. Tentatively, expect the Taito Type X release of KOF XII in June/July of 2008.

More information can be found here.

All we can say is...be prepared...to be amazed.

You wanna know how it's going to look? I'll tell ya how it's gonna look: Fuckin' awesome. Yep no doubt about it. Even if Terry is going to be the happy-go-lucky young Fatal Fury version instead of the awesome grizzled Garou version.

Man, youre verbose :P

Looking forward to this! There have been NO screen leaks right? I really, really hope is something more than JUST KOF HD (maybe a slight change in art style would be welcome, I love how oooold school SNK had really innovative graphical features back in the day)

BTW is it forbidden for SNK to release a KOF that has a beatable final boss? I mean I understand "hard", but not "so amazingly cheap youll be dead in 2 hits LOL and the only way you can kill him is by being so cheap that even after you beat the boss youll feel dirty and/or not accomplished"

Not that Im bitter, but its really fucking annoying to play the entire game one way, and then all of a sudden having to resort to trying one tactic over and over in order to beat the cheap ass final KOF boss du jour. KOF is a great series, but that one aspect screams poor design choice and its sad that now its a staple. (btw my example of a good final boss fight would be Gill, from 2rd strike)

I've seen the "Master Retard!" video and I will never look at Blue Mary the same way again! :lol

Anyways, if SNK Playmore ports KOF XII to the Xbox 360, I'll pick it up day one fo sho. Gotta support fighting games on the X360 every chance I get. :D

$50 to anybody who figures out that reference.


I have to say, I'm not sure I've EVER wanted to see screenshots of something as I want to see screenshots of KOFXII.

Please don't disappoint SNK. This game needs a significant leap in visuals (And possibly some noticeable gameplay improvements. Not really, but I still hope) over KOFXI in order to gain any kind of hype.

It stands for "All Nippon Amusement Machine Operators' Union". It's basically a showcase for the newest in stand up machine technology (not just arcade games).

GDC 2008 is February 18-22.

It's not really poor design. In fact, it's a brilliant design... if you're looking to suck quarters.
