The King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition
|The King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition|
The King of Fighters XIII graces the Windows platform, allowing more people to bask in the glory of rotoscoped sprites
that almost drove SNK Playmore into its' second bankruptcy.
Test Version Leftovers
The game still contains four files that are leftovers from the game's testing phase. These were probably used during the original arcade location test. All have the following text on them:
今回のバージョンはここまでとなります。 現在スタッフ一丸となって制作に取り組んで おりますので、もうしばらくお待ちください。
This says: "And that is the end of this edition [of the KoF series]. The development team is currently hard at work with the next entry. Please look forward to it."
ed_ff.wmv is stored in the video folder. It's a short segment from the cutscene that plays before you fight the boss version of Saiki.
The following images are stored in the ui folder in DDS format.
Dark Ash and Awakened Saiki have pre-fight text for fighting each other. But since it's impossible for these two to fight against each other in normal gameplay, it is never seen, and is also pretty short.
Awakened Saiki:You're the "I" that failed, aren't you? How pathetic.
Dark Ash:Hehe...it doesn't matter now. It only means that I am the stronger one!
During the story intermissions, whenever a character speaks, their name can be seen above the text in the PC and console versions. In the original Arcade version, no name appears and which makes it difficult to know who's talking specifically.
