The King of Fighters series has always held a close 2nd to the Street Fighter series in terms of how widely accepted the games were in arcades and in pop-culture overall. It seems like this iteration of the King of Fighters series might just give Street Fighter IV a run for its money.
The latest trailer to come out of Ignition Entertainment for King of Fighters XII focuses on the combat. As you’ll see in the trailer, all character sprites were painstakingly hand-drawn, but the overall graphics and 3D effects are simply stunning. With only a couple of weeks left until it’s release in July, King of Fighters XII is definitely one game fighting fans should be keeping an eye on.
