Are you enjoying Street Fighter IV ? It's a nod to the golden days of fighters in the gaming industry, and fans everywhere are clamoring to relive the glory days in next-gen form.
If you're one of this group and you own a PlayStation 3, you will be very interested to learn that King of Fighters XII is scheduled to release on Sony's machine this summer. Check out this debut trailer for the game, which is not only colorful and fun to watch, but it also gives us a release estimate of "summer 2009," and there's one other intriguing tidbit: no other platforms are included in the announcement. It might make perfect sense that a King of Fighters installment would be exclusive to a PlayStation platform, and fighting fans would really want a shot at this one. It's fast and furious, with tons of flashy special moves and you'd serve yourself well by practicing with SFIV for a while. Are we seeing the rejuvenation of the genre that once defined the industry? The genre that dominated the arcades and was the lone reason many gamers gamed? We're already looking at Tekken 6 later this year, and with SFIV and SCIV already on the market and something like KoFXII on the way, is it time to once again embrace one of the simplest forms of interactive entertainment known to man? Gotta love it.
We'll have more information on King of Fighters XII as it becomes available; in the meantime, just feast your eyes on this trailer and maybe add yet another promising PS3 exclusive to the already impressive list.
