The legendary 3-on-3 fighting game series that united rival brawlers from SNK Playmore's classic arcade franchises celebrates its 15th Anniversary in style with the release of The King of Fighters XII. For the first time in its history, this epic martial arts showdown has undergone a complete graphical overhaul. The antiquated character sprites used over the past 14 years have been dropped in favor of all-new, high-resolution fighters fluidly animating across painstakingly detailed, 100% hand-drawn backgrounds.

60k is still a good amount considering yeah It released at $60.

Anyways, I got Samuari Shodown Sen and the game has only been out a week but I doubt It's gonna break 10k in It's first month judging from online players and leaderboards, and they released that $50. Though XSeed published it in the US.

They probably figure releasing it at full price and giving it little discount will make up for not selling 150k+ copies in the US since most people buying would be paying close to near full price.

Last time I checked this was at 0.05. Now its at 0.06.

I can't believe this still sells for $60.

For what its worth the other SNK games recently released on the PS2, PSP, and Wii didn't sell much better. And they were released for about $15 - $30.

This game could see a big boost when its $20. I wasn't crazy about it but I'm sure it can evolve into something better down the road.

I'm honestly shocked it hasn't dropped in price yet. It's selling under 1k a week now and the holidays probably won't help that much.

If I'm playing a person in the US and It's 1v1 there is very little to no lag.

It's when someone joins the match, the person added to the lobby makes the lag unbearable.

Playing against people from Japan brings back CVS2 lag from the original XBox which is scary.
