I was bemoaning that this game may not build much of a community yesterday, so I figure I will try to do something about it today. This thread is for the posting and discussion of live streams for The King of Fighters XIII. A stream is going up today (September 4) at 1 PM PST (4 PM EST) from IPLAYWINNER.The stream itself will go up here. As far as I know, the game hasn't gotten much play on American streams. It should be interesting to watch.
KOF XIII Live Stream Thread
I think that's the general mindset at this point. I pre-ordered it for the 4-CD set, so I am in whether the online is good or not. I only ever played the first two Fatal Fury games and KOF '94, so my opinion of Terry Bogard is pretty much the same.
fuck yeh KOFXIII... this game looks awesome...
i know nothing about KOF other than terry bogard has a bitching red hat and shouts powah wave but i will be buying the console version if the online isn't ass
I hope Atlus promotes the shit out of this game. This game deserves to be on Street Fighter's level, and the only reason it's not is the lack of exposure.Unless, they decide to bring the Persona fighting game overseas, I am not sure they will. Fighting games aren't really their niche and their funds are limited. It has a decent site within Atlus, but I am not expecting a big campaign.
I figure that this game is going to succeed based on word of mouth.
Atlus has done pretty well with this. They brought the game to EVO, Otakon, and PAX. I like how they've released move list videos up for the characters. They're promoting the game, but it does seem that it may be more successful by word of mouth.
@jewunit: I forsee Atlus bringing over the Persona fighting game. I don't see why they wouldn't since Persona is a popular franchise in North America. It'd be the same story if they decided not to bring over Persona 4: The Golden for PS Vita. Atlus has done pretty well with this. They brought the game to EVO, Otakon, and PAX.

Thank you for reminding me! It is definitely a sign that Atlus has an interest in promoting it. We will see if it continues as the game gets closer to launch. As for the Persona fighter getting an international release, I am still a little skeptical. I thought Catherine was going to stay in Japan though, so my intuition on this topic is rather poor.
P.S.- Sorry it took so long to respond! I was mesmerized by a Hwa Jai player on the stream. It's amazing that he was brought back for this game.
Yeah, I was watching that as well. I'm surprised with Hwa in this game, same with some of the footage I've seen of Vice. I'm sure there will be more footage from Atlus shown and more events for the game to be displayed.
If I'm right, Tokyo Game Show is month. I'm pretty certain SNK Playmore will be there showing the game and perhaps some new stuff as well.

A few characters have yet to be announced for consoles. Billy Kane, Saiki, and Flame Iori have been revealed, but I believe that two more console-exclusive characters have yet to be announced. TGS seems like the perfect time to do so.
The costumes have become a draw for me. I love that Mr. Karate can be accessed as a costume for Takuma. The option to play as the Big Bear variant of Raiden is great too. The other characters seem to have variants that make them look like other characters as well. I just saw that Robert has an alternate color that makes him look like Terry and Kyo has a variant that makes him look like Iori.
The guessing games on some moves are getting clearer as I watch more video content. It is fun to see how people go back and forth faking Shen's big punch move. It seems like a focus attack without armor, but with much more power behind it.
UMVC3 is dropping today and KOF XIII is a week from release! To celebrate, Level Up has a stream going of KOF XIII's console version. Have a look if you are still on the fence about the game.
