Various sources have indicated that the console versions of The King of Fighters XII will be delayed to end of July, tentatively 28th July 2009.
Reason for the delay? According to the developers, it’s for them to ‘improve the title’.
Personally, I feel it’s to space itself away from the other recently released 2D fighting games, such as BlazBlue, KOF’98 UM and Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Although I’m hoping that they are spending this extra time improving their netcodes, since feedback on that of KOF’98 UM has not been encouraging.
