Patch Details and DLC Announced for KING OF FIGHTERS XIII

King of Fighters XIII logoAltus and SNK Playmore have announced some details about the online patch that they have been working on since the launch of The King of Fighters XIII.

According to a press release from Atlus, the primary concerns focused on will be the connectivity issues that users have reported. Now, the game will judge players’ Internet connection and attempt to only match players with optimal performance. This performance patch will work for quick-play online players and game hosts.

There were some rare bugs reported by users, and Atlus and SNK Playmore have announced that the upcoming patch will address these smaller issues as well. However, no date has been given for the patch.

Dates have been given for upcoming DLC, though. The first character release will be the NESTS Kyo character, launching on XBLA on Dec. 20 with standard character pricing (about $5, although no official price was mentioned for XBLA). This DLC will not launch on PSN until Jan. 10, due to network issues relating to the patch. To make up for the delay, Kyo will be $3 for PS3 owners of The King of Fighters XIII.
