SNK is bringing King of Fighters XIII
to both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the home version will be more than just a straight port of the arcade game. SNK has revealed that series staple Billy Kane has been added for the upcoming home release.
The announcement of Billy’s addition was made in a recent issue of Famitsu and has since been confirmed on the game’s official website
; many are assuming that his inclusion may also lead to the rest of his loyal team members from the series being added as well (Yamazaki and Blue Mary). The game is set to release in Japan on October 27, 2011 and should be hitting the US by the end of the year <fingers crossed>.
