SNK Playmore announces King of Fighters XIII along with a preview event date

The King of Fighters series is something that you expect to see a new version of in arcades about every year or so, like Golden Tee. It may not be the most popular fighter series out there but it does have a loyal fanbase (something I have been surprised at with my own KOF98 which a few weeks was my top earning game even though it’s only on one token). So fans should be pleased to hear that SNK Playmore has announced KOF XIII for arcades. At the moment the only hint about the game is that it will continue the 2D trend and it will run on the Type X2 hardware. Rumor has it the game will be released in April – hopefully they give it more time in arcades than they did XII which came out on consoles two months later (this is the biggest problem I have with most fighters right now, they aren’t giving them enough exclusive time in arcades)  We’ll find out more when SNK holds a public press event on March 25th, until then did you care about KOF XII at all? I haven’t heard many good things about it after it came out on consoles but I also haven’t had a chance to play it yet. So let’s do a poll!
