King of Fighters XII is all about fighting, that much is obvious, but in order to simulate that true “arcade feeling,” a robust online mode is needed, isn’t it?
Developer SNK Playmore absolutely thinks so and revealed their plans for the online battlefront today telling us that the title will have the following:
Online lobby support, up to eight players; rankings and leaderboards; and a Clan Mode exclusive to the Sony and PS3 faithful.
In the lobby, two players will duke it out, while the others wait in line to take on the winner. So yeah, it’s like an arcade, but I never liked waiting to play, did you?
The exclusive Clan Mode for PS3 is an interesting inclusion as it allows players to start up clans, recruit more fighters, and play clan vs. clan matches.
King of Fighters XII brawls its way onto PS3 and Xbox 360 this July.‚ Until then, I’d do some finger push-ups to get ready for the crazy-fast button combos you’ll be mashing when the game releases.
