Every major fighting game released this generation has an online feature with the exception of Virtua Fighter 5 on the PS3. Two player battles are pretty much guaranteed and that’s really all you get. Even if a game has multiple modes to play, they won’t be online enabled.
With the recent resurgence of the fighting game genre, one would think that an online training mode would have been done by now.
We’ve had a long love affair with The King of Fighters here at PS3 Attitude. Some of the team remember the original title, and many of the subsequent sequels, with great affection.
But that love affair offers a double-edged sword, since the latest in the franchise – and the first to hit the current generation of super-consoles – needs to impress us more than the average punter.
Does The King of Fighters XII do enough to punch and kick its way back into our affections?
Word reaches us that the official King of Fighters XII website has gone live, and packs a few nice surprises.
As well as fighter profiles and the usual multimedia you’d expect from a game-site, Ignition have announced a ‘Fan Art Contest’.
This contest, which will run from May 12 to July 31, will reward the best user-created fan art with $1,000. Runner-ups will receive consoles, games, and limited-edition figurines. All of the submissions can be found on the Fan Art section of the official KOF site.
You may know we have a soft spot for The King of Fighters series here at Attitude Towers.
Now, Ignition is giving the opportunity to the online community to choose the official box art for the PS3 and X360 versions.
In case you’re too busy playing Street Fighter IV, we’re here to let you know that another fighter has entered the ring! The King of Fighters XII in all its 2D glory, and trust us, there’s a lot of it, will be making its way to the PlayStation 3 this summer.
