"The pinnacle of 2D sprite-based fighting is back!"
SNK has officially announced that a new King of Fighters game will be coming to Nintendo Switch titled The King of Fighters XIII: Global Match. The announcement comes alongside a brief trailer (above), which features around 30 seconds of intense fighting footage. It also mentions that the game will have a smoother online experience thanks to “rollback netcode and improved online functionality.”
We don’t have a release date for The King of Fighters XIII: Global Match just yet. There will be an open beta test in the summer on PS4, but nothing has been announced for Switch on that front. Stay tuned for more details!
