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。

Which translates to:

And that is the end of this edition. 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:

Unused Text

Hmmm...
To do:
  • More. Dialogue against themselves, as well as win quotes for the three pairings.
  • Text in question was sighted in Version 1.4 (which this user was playing as of this edit). Check previous versions per possible revisional differences.

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!

Version Differences

During the story intermissions, whenever a character speaks their name is displayed above the text in the PC and console versions. In the original arcade version, no name appears, which makes it difficult to know who's talking specifically.
