KOF XII to Hit Xbox360 and PS3 This July!

March 4, 2009

An KOF XII US Debut video has been released indicating a Summer 2009 release:

Kotaku further clarifies the release date of July 2009 for Xbox360 and PS3 (link).

Also says Shane Bettenhausen, New Business Development Director of Ignition Entertainment:

“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. 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.”

KOF XII: Critical Counter

December 4, 2008

The King of Fighters XII’s Critical Counter mechanism has been shown and explained in Japanese at a¬†Famitsu event:

Basically, if you perform a close-range counter attack (i.e. just after opponent is about to execute an attack on you), you will be able to stun your opponent monentarily and perform a string of combos which consist of cancellable moves.

As seen in the video, the resulting damage is significant with one such Critical Counter maneuver. That was what SNK meant when they mentioned prediction of opponents’ moves plays an important role in KOF XII.
