Fans of 2D beat-em-ups rejoice! The latest in The King Of Fighters series, instalment XIII, will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this autumn. SNK Playmore and Atlus will be publishing the game in North America in October, but a European release date has yet to be confirmed.

Hugely improved features include global online play with optimised broadband and priority seeding. There are now over 30 characters to choose from and fan favourite Mai returns. Vast improvements have been made to gameplay with new NEO MAX super moves, faster gameplay and camera control.

Well now SNK Playmore have released a brand new gameplay trailer, that details many of the improvements that have been made for this iteration, as well as showing us some of the impressive action. Check it out now:
