Okay, let’s say XII does well for SNKP, they continue bringing us solid 2D titles into the next decade. Hopefully on that journey they resurrect an old franchise or two, and finally create a new Intellectual IP. But here’s a good question:
Other then adding more characters, what would make KOX XIII any better than XII? I know not everyone has experienced XII, and this may be a little premature. But I think it’s a valid enough question.
My idea is that XII is supposed to take things back to basics, then XIII will be more like 98; you know, multiple super bars, Critical Counter mode, an oldschool mode, (maybe a hybrid of Advanced and Extra mode from 98), Garou mode (Just Defend plus whatever else), and a custom mode.
Then after this, I think they may as well go all out and create a KOF that features every possible character from the series, and may just end the series with a bang. They could still create spin offs featuring Kyo, Iori, and all new characters.
