i the one and a half years since they finished this game, i hope well get more than an ash headswap and billy, lets hope billy agt least has a whole team, and if were lucky we get another team.

also theres 12 stages now in 13 without the boss stages.

10 teams and 1 single entry.

that means that every team could technically get their own bg, fucking hype. kof didnt have something like this since 95. in 96 everybody had their own bg's, but some wher shared with only some minor differneces (kyo/athena, aof/ff). i hope this doesnt mean the 2 other bg's are for single entries billy and ash or saiki but for a whole billy team. in fatc id be thrilled if theres another complete team besides billy team if he has one. the single entries dont need a stage imo. let them fight in other peoples stages.

edit: if i had to give these stages to teams?

starting with the left 6:

upper left: lizzy or ash stage

middle left: ?

middle right: kyo stage/japan stage.

lower left: iori

lower right: ?


now for the right side:

upper left: ?

upper right: ?

middle left: ?

middle right: woman team

So, I just noticed something... that rocky desert stage is A LOT like Earthquake's old stage from Samurai Showdown 1, ain't it?



And this looks to be Nakaruru appearing in the text descriptions for absolutely no reason:



.... I like where this could be going, lol. Might be reading too much into it, however...

lol Nakoruru is so random in there. Her artwork look really different from the rest of the game, I wonder who did the artwork.  

Now that I think about it... doing a HD combo must be a pain in the ass in the iPhone/iPad version.

Big news!

One detail... the logo has a fire flame, and a purple one... And Iori is not on the roster, yet.

Very astute observation, yet another hint and what we already can assume/rumored about '95 Iori.

Better look at the levels



Love the updates to Iori 95 and Esaka 96


Welcome to DreamCancel Jeremy, love your first post :)!!!

Agreed.  You and Greenwood have excellent first posts =)  Damn Esaka '96, so nostalgic.

Welcome to DreamCancel Jeremy, love your first post :)!!!

Thanks, long-time lurker, first-time poster as they say. Really excited for the 360 console launch of KoF13.

Like SAB-CA said on Neo-Gaf, the stages are a different from the Arcade version, being zoomed in and the backgrounds not moving, but I like to think that's simply because of the smaller/less powerful format they're working on. We already seen a couple of these new levels in their full glory, so I'd hedge my bets on them being in the console release as well.

The training thing reminds me of the Combat Mission segments from SNK's various Metal Slug home ports. You could probably make a really cool one with the systems at play in King of Fighters XIII. Nakoruru intrigues me, since she's only been a striker at best, not including that Game Boy port. Different style of artwork too, she looks much older than the usual pictures of her.

Some info from SpekSNK by Wesker:

Quote from: Wesker
- The game has the same intro as the arcade. With great quality!
- The Menu has a new music track.
- Before playing, you are taken to a tutorial to learn how to play the game.
- Nakoruru appears in the tutorial and it's a fight between Kyo and Ash.
- The music seems to be the same as the one from the Arcade. The animation is really fluid, looks great on the iPhone.
- The stages are not animated, but they have zoom.
- The tutorial teaches you Kyo NeoMAX so the assumption is that all the characters have their NeoMAX.
- The mecanics of the game as similar to XIII, but with the obvious simplification in the control scheme. Combos seem easy to pull.
- After the tutorial, the game send you to the Main Menu and it has the following options: Arcade, Bluetooth Mode, Gallery, Record, Shop and Game Center.
- Facebook and Twitter are integrated into the game.
- 3 colors per character.
- The game shows you the challenges while fighting, just like the Arcade.
- After the fight is done, you can save the replay!
- After every fight you earn points.
- The final boss is ASH.
- Billy and Joe have a funny conversation in which Billy gets mad that Joe is stalking his sister or something on those lines.
- Billy vs Billy conversation is about "Geese can only have 1 right hand man!"
- The game doesn't have endings, it just says "Congratulations!" and gives you illustrations for the Gallery.
- Yuri and King have their clothe ripping off as the Arcade ver.
- Esaka 96 stage is completely redone.
- You can unlock challenges, or you can unlock challenges/archievements while you play.
- Billy standing pose is kinda static, but well done. His voice is the same one we know.
- When you fight Billy, his FF music plays.
- In Gallery mode, all the stories of the teams are translated to english.

This is a lot of great info!

But what surprises me is the Twitter and Facebook integration, which is really innovative for a fighter. Heck, saving replays on the Iphone is impressive too.

Thanks for the heads up, DarKaoZ.

If I were to get my own iPod Touch or iPhone, I will definitely buy this.

if the end boss is ash it could be the missing story arc of when ash was after kyo's powers.
KoF XIII... Needs more Angel, Vanessa and Blue Mary! ^^
