Commemorating the 15th anniversary of the franchise, King of Fighters XII serves up 22 characters each with their own unique moves and styles in a stunning 2D production incorporating all-new, high-resolution fighters fluidly animating across painstakingly detailed, 100% hand-drawn backgrounds.

And I can tell you now folks, this game sure does look pretty.

King of Fighters is back for it’s 12th round and with a new attitude to boot. Sticking with the games usual 3-on-3 team-styled matches, KOF XII sees new character sprites, three new fighting systems (critical counter, deadlock and guard attack) and even an online mode so you can take your battles worldwide.

The question remains, will King of Fighters XII, be The King of All Fighters?


What the press have been saying:

Official 360 Magazine (Future Publishing)

8 /10 ‘MUST BUY!’
‘The fastest and the most furious fighting game yet’
‘This is the brightest, most colourful game you’ll every play! Don’t even try and argue with this one’


‘THE KING OF FIGHTERS XII is not only one of the best-looking fighting games around, it’s also one of the most rewarding. Putting hand-drawn sprites into a current-gen game is a difficult task, but KOF XII is entirely hand-drawn and it looks fantastic. The gameplay is equally enticing, as it represents a slick update of the classic King of Fighters combat. Even if you’re not a fan of the franchise, this is one to look out for.’

Excited yet? You should be!
