Gamespot KOF XIII impressions from E3
Gamespot, like Siliconera, had the chance to play King of Fighters XIII at E3. The Gamespot article goes a bit more in-depth reporting that all of the characters were playable but none of the modes were implemented yet. Several game modes have been confirmed. Of note is that story mode will use static, high-res 2D art screens.
The game will be based on version 1.1 and Atlus is unsure if SNKP will change that. It looks as though the online will be based on the post-patch version of the XII netcode. Atlus will be working closely with SNKP on all aspects of the game. As someone who’s played a lot of XII online, the patched netcode is pretty good and, with a bit of work, may well be great.
Atlus has not announced any pre-order bonuses but they are known for some very nice packages of late.
I have the 360 version pre-ordered at Amazon and will pre-order the PS3 version tomorrow at Gamestop. Which version will you pre-order? Or are you going to wait?
