  King of Fighters XI PAL Release Broken?

Check out this short video of the PAL version of KOF XI in action... it would appear that it has some pretty bad bugs in it:

Tizoc is labeled as Mai, some cut scene text goes off the screen, and the game freezes in practice mode under certain conditions. This video has been posted on a number of forums, but before people lose their mind over it, one thing does need to be pointed out: the game is NOT out officially right now, and the only version doing the rounds is a warez copy. The game is not out until the 6th of July according to, so the likelihood is that the version people have tried is a beta and not the final product.

This is pure speculation at the moment of course, and we won't know for sure until KOF XI comes out for real, but one thing is certain; if the game does contain these bugs, then it's quite unacceptable, especially considering the PAL version of NGBC had a few issues of its own, not to mention the problems that afflicted the US version of SNK Vs Capcom Card Fighters on the Nintendo DS. Ignition Entertainment might be the ones to blame for NGBC and KOF XI, with SNK being to blame for SVC, but the simple fact is that people expect to get a quality product for their money, and should not have to put up with stuff like this on a regular basis.

I'll update once I know for sure if these bugs are in the final version (I'll be getting it soon after the official release). Thanks to boogiepop for the heads up on the video!

If it's not going to be altered before release, that's pretty poor - but, at least it's coming to Europe. However, if you're a hardcore SNK fan, it's possible that you bought the Japanese version anyhow. Well worth the money, i say.

I have the Japanese version anyway, but would enjoy being able to play it in English and not having to look up what all the endings mean, I'd also like to support Ignition by buying it, but if they fuck games up like this (if the final version IS like this), then I won't bother. I know these bugs don't really affect the gameplay, but I can't understand how they could mess up something so simple... and don't they have anyone playtesting it at all?

Nice to see you btw debujin Smile Thumbs Up

I can order the PAL KoFXI on the site I order my games at already. If I had a PS2 I would have bought it and tested it out.
#4 | Kazuya_UK on June 20 2007 11:27
What site do you get them from? Perhaps the final version is buggy then...:(

#5 | Midian on June 20 2007 21:44
I get them from, it's a Dutch game store with three stores in Holland, but they also ship their games. I'm not sure if they ship too other countries though.
#6 | Kazuya_UK on June 21 2007 09:58
I'll hang on for now and grab the official UK version if I do buy it, but with the bugs I think I might just stick with the Japanese version. Thanks Smile

#7 | Midian on June 21 2007 21:13
No prob, if I ever get a PS2 I'll check out for the bugs aswell.

I registered here to tell you guys that I bought the Australian PAL version of KOFXI tonight, and Tizoc was labeled Mai. I would assume the other glitches are present, too.
#9 | Kazuya_UK on June 22 2007 12:26
Hey Doorselfin - thanks for letting us know. A few other people have confirmed this now, so I will update the news accordingly. Not good news really, Ignition have really dropped the ball with this one!

Thanks again,

I've just registered to ask you to post a news about bugs as soon as you get your hands on European Pal version... I'm really waiting for this game for eternity and now such a thing... Ok, you can stand changing Tizoc into Mai but subtitles problems and freezing the screen? What is this, a PC game? Shock I hope they'll fix it all til 6th July... Eh, maybe I should start playing pirated games? :(

Sad to see JammaPlus has closed down. I got about 60% of my arcade boards from there

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