  KOF XII - High Quality Screenshots!

Here are some great high quality screenshots of KOF XII from Famitsu! They do mostly show what we have already seen in the trailer, and while I'm desperate to see more of the new stages and sprites, this is great for now!

The Famitsu article mentions a few things about the new system, and some of the pictures are used to illustrate that. In two of the pictures you can see Benimaru attacking Kyo with a punch, and Kyo hitting back instantly. In another two pictures you see Terry performing his Burning Knuckle on Kyo, before Kyo strikes back. It also mentions the new "System Offset", which is where two attacks connect at the same time. I'm not entirely sure how this works but would appreciate it if any Japanese speakers could translate the article.

In a few other pictures you will also notice a red ripple behind a character that is being hit. This is the new wall bounce system, where a character that is hit at the side of the screen will stay there for a brief time to allow the opponent to attack them more. This is one thing I'm really not too sure about yet and it could be either very bad or very good, so I'm curious to see how it turns out.

I love how the character artwork is shaping up. Very 2k2ish.

The artwork looks fabulous
And I think there is wall bounce from shots

Spritework looks AMAZING Shock! So far, this is starting to look like the best King Of Fighters ever! Hopefully the same can be said about the gameplay. I really hope Yamazaki and Kain R. Heinlein make a return, though.

This game isn't even out yet; it already conquers many a KoF in terms of stages. Still worried about that "wall bounce". The fighting system means everything.

Yea, I must admit I am blown away by the backgrounds, and what's more when you look at the video that was shown, there's so much movement going on there, it's amazing. The only thing that I would like to see though is for them to go back to having a stage for each team, with their own theme music. I just prefer it that way because it improves the atmosphere, and I like to associate stages with each team. Only a minor detail I know, but one that I think is important.

KOFXII looks gorgeous. Its gonna take awhile to get use to seeing it this way. I hope the graphics dont get in the way of the gameplay. Whenever there's too much going on in the background, it can get a little confusing sometimes.
Nevertheless, no one can really complain about the graphics this around. Grin

I was thinking the same about the graphics, I'd hate for the sprites and backgrounds to merge together too much. Judging by what we've seen so far that's definitely not the case though. Also, did anyone notice how the sprites even seem to have lighting effects on them? It's best illustrated in the fifth picture down, you can see that in the shadows, Ash and Kyo are darker than they are in the other pics. The projectiles seem to have an effect on them too. That's very cool indeed! Grin

Check out how many hits this news post has been getting - nice! Also great to see the comments getting used too, keep it up guys! Thumbs Up

I agree with Sonic, it's going to take some getting used to.

Nice Ducky. Playing '98 eh? I Haven't played any Neo Kofs in awhile. Actually been playing XIV more than I anticipated.

I'm good! Strolling through life with the occasional round of KOF 98.
