I'm surprised this game doesn't have a thread there.
The newest addition to the respected fighting game series: The King of Fighters. Also, SNK had announced that the game will have a graphical overhaul; everything will be hand-drawn by the artists.
KOF XI was released on the Atomiswave arcade board, whereas KOF XII will be on the Taito Type X2 arcade board.

Hopefully, SNK Playmore will add K' since he's my favourite character, and then there's Shingo, Yuri, and some new characters to think of.
