#5

It’s about damn time.


#6

Sweet.


#7

that’s the mystery E3 game?


#8

Depends, is the mystery E3 game said to be a fighting game?
Either way, they did say a fighting game franchise would return in this E3 (this was announced before E3 even begun)


#9

I hope the netcode isnt shit like 2K2UM


#10

GGPO is open for all developers right? Atlus should consider it…


#11

So is Atlus handeling the port, or just publishing it?
If they are porting it, I’m gonna be a bit worried.


#12

Why? It’s not like SNK’s ports are good.

But Atlus USA is a publisher, so chances are SNK is handling the port and Atlus is handling the localization.


#13

Doesn’t seem likely. The arcade version of XIII already had an English translation.


#14

Localization covers more than just the game. Menus, manuals, the boxart, etcetera.


#15

Get them to use GGPO. I’m pretty sure Atlus understands the need of a proper netcode.


#16

I think I just herped so hard that I derped.


#17

That’s good news. Hope they add some good netcode to it.


#18

OMG, I am so glad KOFXIII is finally coming out. Day 1 purchase for me!


#19

I’m aware of that. Either way, the bulk of the work (all of the pre-fight dialogue and win quotes in arcade mode) would already be complete is all I’m saying. Everything else should be rather simple for them, though including the sort of pre-order bonuses Atlus is known for (something useful, like an artbook and soundtrack) would be nice.

KOF XIII for EVO 2012!
