The King of Fighters XII Has An Online Virtual Arcade

The King of Fighters XII attempts to replicate the feel of an arcade at home. The online setup has rooms where users can watch fights and discuss how Goro walked right into one of Ryo’s fireballs.


Reliable and leaky retailer Rakuten also explains the King of Fighters XII will also have community features like clan support. Clan members can post messages on a common bulletin board and issue clan challenges.


The other interesting tidbit is the King of Fighters XII more than 22 characters. That’s at least two more than the arcade version. So many fighters are sitting on the bench too. Which characters will SNK pick?

    Please make it King, Yuri and Whip SNK! this games is severely lacking in the females department!

    I’m so torn between this and BlazBlue, I won’t get two fighting games so close to each other – but right now KOF seems like a pretty bare bones experience compared to BB which at least has a lengthy story mode.

  • Great news. This was one crucial thing that was missing from SFIV.

    Pretty sure it’s most likely K’ and Mai, seeing as they had KOFXII style artwork for them.

  • Garou

    It’s already essentially confirmed as Mai and K’ as they have appeared in actual KOF12 styled art standing next to the rest of the KOF12 cast. There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind.

  • Mikael

    I just want K as an additional character, he is one of the few new ones I really enjoyed playing like
