Atlus USA is getting ready to release The King of Fighters XIII with their series of special move videos including the latest console exclusive characters featuring Fatal Fury’s Billy Kane and original Iori Yagami.
Fans of the older KOF games such as The King of Fighters ’98 and The King of Fighters 2002 will be able to enjoy using Iori with his flames in XIII. Originally in the arcade release, Iori lost his powers within the game story rendering his move set less projectile based and more up close.
Billy Kane from the Fatal Fury series was the first announced character to appear in the console version of XIII. Most of his moves from his Fatal Fury and KOF appearances are implemented in this game with the emphasis in agility over power.
Saiki, the main antagonist of XIII, is the last confirmed exclusive character. In his normal form apart from his demonic sub-boss form, Saiki plays a bit similar to major character Ash Crimson with the inclusion of a teleport and different desperation attacks.
Make sure to check out these gameplay videos before The King of Fighters XIII hits store shelves on Oct. 25, 2011.
