Mmm... more 2D fighting news! SNK Playmore actually released this trailer for KOF XII back in February at the AOU 2009 event in Japan, but for some reason I'm just now hearing about it. Luckily that means I can pass it along to you!

KOF XII will be much like KOF '98 and KOF 2002 in that there will be no storyline associated with the game. This allows the use of any 3-man team out of a series-low 20 playabale characters. The low amount of playables was attributed to a newly rendered 2D art style that took up considerable development time, SNK having completely scrapped sprites they had been using for over 10 years in previous games. About time for a change, eh?

KOF XII is scheduled for release sometime in July with no definitive date set, though I have seen many online retailers showing July 7th.
