The King of Fighters franchise celebrates a milestone 15th anniversary this year, and to celebrate what better way to launch a revision of the storied series in the name of The King of Fighters XII?‚  If you’re a fan of the game, this installment has been on your radar for some time now, but for the rest of us, why should we play this game?

Simple, because Blast has exclusive and action packed character bio videos that even got me excited about a franchise I never took part in.

The theme music for each video is catchy, so catchy you’ve got to be careful how often you listen, but totally worth it in the end.

Below are videos detailing Duo Lon, Ash Crimson, Shen Woo, and Kyo Kusanagi, long before they go public next week.

And if you happen to live in the greater Los Angeles area; a 128 man, free to enter King of Fighters tournament is being held in Hollywood with the winner taking home a limited edition KOF XII arcade cabinet imported from Japan.‚  Sign up here.

I must say, KOF12 was not on my horizon prior to the news developer Ignition has thrown our way, but hey, who doesn’t like a good beat ’em up fighter?
