IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- JULY 29, 2011 -- ATLUS today unveiled a tremendous offer for fans who pre-order their copy of THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII, the latest entry in the legendary fighting franchise, for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (PS3™) and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

At participating retailers while supplies last, fans who reserve KOF XIII will receive a 4-CD soundtrack compilation with music spanning the 15+ year history of the famed series, certain to be one of the best collectible extras in franchise history.  Fans are strongly advised to reserve their copy as soon as possible at participating retailers to guarantee themselves the bonus soundtrack compilation!

Alongside news of the pre-order only 4-CD bonus, ATLUS also today shared new information regarding the console release of KOF XIII, detailing a host of game modes exclusive to the home version.

  • In STORY mode, players can view events from multiple characters' perspectives, including Ash, Heidern, and Adelheid.  In addition, the story will be influenced by the player's choices and battle results.  All of this is presented through a wealth of new visuals and animations that fans cannot afford to miss!
  • ONLINE VERSUS mode will feature three different match types, each allowing players to challenge other rivals worldwide: RANKED MATCH, PLAYER MATCH, and FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY.  RANKED MATCH follows strict rules, reflecting players' records in official rankings. Unranked PLAYER MATCH fights allow for custom rules, letting players enjoy more relaxed battles with more freedom to experiment with new strategies.  FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY lets players invite online challengers.
  • MISSION mode offers three challenging objectives to help players practice and improve their fighting skills!  Beat all the CPU-controlled characters as fast as possible to record the best time in TIME ATTACK.  See how many CPU-controlled characters you can defeat before your life gauge is depleted to zero in SURVIVAL.  Take on special challenges for each character in TRIAL Mode.
  • Series newcomers or fans looking to improve their skills can turn to the TUTORIAL mode, in which tournament organizer Rose Bernstein explains the different basic controls for each character and the importance of each gauge.
  • Other modes available in the console version of KOF XIII include ARCADE, VERSUS, PRACTICE, REPLAY, GALLERY, and CUSTOMIZE.  More details will be made available regarding these modes at a later date! 
ATLUS also invited fans to join them at EVO 2K and Otakon (7/29-31).  With a playable early version of the console release open to the public, plus a panel with KOF XIII's director at EVO 2K (7/30 at 10:00am PDT), the shows offer the perfect opportunity for the community to get a sneak peek at the game in action and ask their most pressing questions.

 

THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII is scheduled to release in October for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems.  For more info, visit http://www.atlus.com/kofxiii.
