Whoa @ that pre-order bonus. I put mine in last week at Gamestop but they didn't mention it. Hope they're one of the "participating retailers". Can't believe how amazing this game is turning out to be...

Ugh I don't like how they write the moves in their Japanese names =/
EDIT: Hopefully someone can check the website code to see if they can find hints at any other characters in the game. ATM I count possibly 6 additional characters.
Here's hoping HonFu and Grant make it as playable characters ;.;

Would you recommend this game for KoF newbies? I read a long time ago in Shoryuken.com that KoF 98 was a better entry into the series, but I'm a sucker for this new graphic style. Should I get XII before this one?

Don't bother with XII it's a waste of money .
I would say XIII is a good KOF to start with , it make no sense play 98 since it so different from XIII.
Plus with all the extra stuff they add to tutorial it's a good time to start to play KOF .

Yes, combos are easier than other games.
I think it is a good idea to start with an earlier entry, but inputs tend to be somewhat stricter in those games.
And no, 12 isn't very good.

You don't need to play XII, but XIII is rather easy to learn.

@gundamyoukai- Are you saying you'd rather have KoF characters than non-KoF characters?
Cuz as much as I would like to see the 94 USA team in this, I'd be more pleased with characters from other SNK fighters more, simply for the sake of exposure.

Yeah i would like to see old KOF chars rather than new chars from other series.
The get old players back into the arcade playing the new version of the game and because they also have allot of old fan fav missing .
Plus if the add chars from other series i much rather from old school games like FF Real Bout special and AOF 3 .

Some more notes from Kane317 in regards to balance changes

Vice's Ex splash starts up faster but it only goes half screen.
Clark's B SAB now has autoguard, thanks for the tip Laban.
Kula's Ex Ray Spin lost invincibility, Andy's s.C now does two hits and both are cancellable.

Translated K' nerfs from MMCAFE (notes written by Kunio/No. 17 OF KCE fame)

2B can still be canceled.
Air Minutes Spike drops faster after hitting, but there's longer recovery.
EX Second Shell floats opponent high and far, but Minutes Spike can still somehow hit.

EX Minutes Spike damage down from 150>110 on ground, 120>70 in air.
Slight Frame disadvantage after Iron Trigger, both strengths.
Chain may be a little harder to connect.
Second Shell's hitbox is smaller. 2A or 5C>6A, 5C(2nd hit)>Weak Iron Trigger> Second Shell won't connect.
Second Shell's recovery is longer. Weak Iron Trigger> Shell > Feirce Minutes Spike > Feirce Crow Bites won't connect (weak will).
Short hop D has smaller hitbox, doesn't hit if done on the way up.
Feirce Minutes Spike whiffs against crouching opponent (weak will).
Weak Crow Bites damage down from 60/40>50/30.
Narrow Spike recovery is longer, frame disadvantage when Blocked. About 7 frames by feeling.

Well! Look whats up!

Website also gives you a chance to check out the new characters moves. Not all teams are up, but there are only enough blanked out squares for the remainder of the teams from the arcade release. Any characters beyond this point will probably be DLC.

OK, now I'm probably importing. Keep up the good work Atlus!

Dear Atus: THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the crazy extras this is getting. The game alone and poor netcode would've been fine with me, but you've gone far beyond the call of duty. This deserves to sell 10x as much as it will due to sheer love given to this game alone.

You said that SNKP was dead and that the console version would be awful.

This this this. I paid this puppy off in full a month and some change ago. Even more happy that I did so now.

After reading an interview and seeing this game at Otakon, I am at the very least renting it. I enjoyed my XII rental but there just wasn't enough content for $60. How much is this gonna be?
50 of the best bucks you have ever spent.

Everything looks good. Bottom line: Netcode. That's the deal breaker for me.
Thats what we are all waiting for, I am pretty confident they will have decent netcode though, I mean that is there main focal point so I don't see how they can fail.

Buying this regardless of netcode. The effort that's going into this...just wow, I have to support this.

Who's publishing this in PAL land? I want my 4-CD bonus!

this looks soooooo good, i donno why kof 12 was so fucking crap though
I'm guessing it's because it doesn't play like the KoFs before it (i.e. not more of the same, which KoF 13 feels more like).
Plus the system had some stuff that weren't implemented right, mainly the Custom Combo sub system.
