Champion: King of Fighters XIII pre-orders and beta applications open
It looks like the PC’s dearth of fighting games that start with something other than “Street Fighter IV” and end with something other than a random combination of words that may include “Hyper Extreme Super Arcade Edition Turbo” is coming to an end, because you can now pre-order The King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition on – can you guess? – Steam.
It’s due out on 13 September, and right now you can get it for the price of £18.99 – 17% off its standard £22.99 price.
The King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition claims it’s suitable for players of all levels, with everything from 3-on-3 Team Battles through Story through Online through Mission Mode through a Tutorial Mode for newbies. So, er, that’s quite a lot of modes. It also comes with three DLC characters unlocked from the start – Iori with the Power of Flames, NESTS Style Kyo, and Mr. Karate – which bumps the roster up to 36 characters.
But wait, that’s not all! SNK Playmore are also looking for 300 beta testers for a closed beta that will be implemented between 20 August and 29 August. If you want a chance to be one of those 300, hop on over to the registration page and sign up. You’ve got until 18 August (this coming Sunday) to apply.
