Atlus has recently detailed a host of game modes that are going to exclusive to the home console versions, as opposed to the arcade version. Here they are:
-In STORY mode, players can view events from multiple characters' perspectives, including Ash, Heidern, and Adelheid. In addition, the story will be influenced by the player's choices and battle results. All of this is presented through a wealth of new visuals and animations that fans cannot afford to miss!
-ONLINE VERSUS mode will feature three different match types, each allowing players to challenge other rivals worldwide: RANKED MATCH, PLAYER MATCH, and FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY. RANKED MATCH follows strict rules, reflecting players' records in official rankings. Unranked PLAYER MATCH fights allow for custom rules, letting players enjoy more relaxed battles with more freedom to experiment with new strategies. FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY lets players invite online challengers.
-MISSION mode offers three challenging objectives to help players practice and improve their fighting skills! Beat all the CPU-controlled characters as fast as possible to record the best time in TIME ATTACK. See how many CPU-controlled characters you can defeat before your life gauge is depleted to zero in SURVIVAL. Take on special challenges for each character in TRIAL Mode.
-Series newcomers or fans looking to improve their skills can turn to the TUTORIAL mode, in which tournament organizer Rose Bernstein explains the different basic controls for each character and the importance of each gauge.
-Other modes available in the console version of KOF XIII include ARCADE, VERSUS, PRACTICE, REPLAY, GALLERY, and CUSTOMIZE. More details will be made available regarding these modes at a later date!
Besides the rundown of console modes coming, Atlus also announced an extravagant pre-order bundle that King of Fighter fans can get a hold of from participating retailers, while supplies last. Those who reserve King of Fighters will receive a 4-CD soundtrack compilation with music covering the 15+ year history of the series.
If you are a fan of King of Fighters, or plan on picking up this game at all, I would highly recommend reserving a copy to take advantage of this offer. I’ve actually worked for a videogame retailer previously so I’ve seen a lot of pre-order bonuses in the past, and honestly most of them are junk, but this actually seems like a really cool offer and it will cost you nothing in the end.
