ATLUS announces limited time $10 off sale, reveals exclusive Evo 2012 T-shirt for KOF XIII tournament entrantsAtlus and developer SNK Playmore have released the a highly anticipated patch intended to address various issues for The King Of Fighters XIII, the latest in the legendary fighting franchise, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game update, now available on PlayStation Network and coming soon to Xbox LIVE, addresses a number of issues, many of which negatively affected online gameplay experience:
- Ranked Match Filtering: One of the most requested additions, players may now set conditions for their opponent's connection. When a player who doesn't meet the standby conditions tries to enter the Ranked match, a warning message will be displayed and the match cancelled.
- Improved Filtering: Filtering functionality in general has seen dramatic improvements. Previously, certain connection data was not filtered sufficiently and the player had a chance of connecting to opponents with poor connection quality. Now, more aggressive filtering should ensure that players are only matched with opponents who meet their filter settings.
- Improved Connection Antenna: The computation behind the players' connection antenna, the meter indicating the quality of a player's connection, has been improved, resulting in a more accurate and consistent measurement.
- Temporarily Saved Custom Match Settings: Players may continue searching for opponents with the same settings as long as the player remains in the PLAYER MATCH/RANKED MATCH menu.
- Character-specific Bug Fixes: "NESTS-Style" Kyo and Iori with the Power of Flames no longer become unresponsive under certain circumstances.
- Additional refinements, fixes, and more!
Upon formally registrating for the KOF XIII tournament at Evo 2012, challengers will reserve an exclusive, extremely limited t-shirt featuring Mai Shiranui and the Evo Championship Series logo. Not only is the t-shirt poised to become an ultra-rare collectible, but because sizing information is taken as part of the registration process, public flauntability is ensured as well.
The King Of Fighters XIII is out now in North America for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems.
