Atlus announced today that the upcoming King of Fighters XIII will have one right nice bonus for those who pre-order the title. This news also comes with some lovely screenshots and the stylish cover art for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Those who pre-order the latest entry in the legendary fighting series will receive a four disc soundtrack from select retailers. This compilation doesn’t just boast music from King of Fighters XIII but music that spans the 15+ years that the series has been around. Fans of the King of Fighters series shouldn’t waste much time reserving a copy as I’m sure supplies will be limited.

Not only had Atlus shared what gamers can get for pre-ordering but they also had some new details about the many modes available to the home version.

  • In STORY mode, players can view events from multiple characters’ perspectives, including Ash, Heidern, and Adelheid.  In addition, the story will be influenced by the player’s choices and battle results.  All of this is presented through a wealth of new visuals and animations that fans cannot afford to miss!
  • ONLINE VERSUS mode will feature three different match types, each allowing players to challenge other rivals worldwide: RANKED MATCH, PLAYER MATCH, and FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY.  RANKED MATCH follows strict rules, reflecting players’ records in official rankings. Unranked PLAYER MATCH fights allow for custom rules, letting players enjoy more relaxed battles with more freedom to experiment with new strategies.  FRIEND MATCH/XBOX LIVE PARTY lets players invite online challengers.
  • MISSION mode offers three challenging objectives to help players practice and improve their fighting skills!  Beat all the CPU-controlled characters as fast as possible to record the best time in TIME ATTACK.  See how many CPU-controlled characters you can defeat before your life gauge is depleted to zero in SURVIVAL.  Take on special challenges for each character in TRIAL Mode.
  • Series newcomers or fans looking to improve their skills can turn to the TUTORIAL mode, in which tournament organizer Rose Bernstein explains the different basic controls for each character and the importance of each gauge.
  • Other modes available in the console version of KOF XIII include ARCADE, VERSUS, PRACTICE, REPLAY, GALLERY, and CUSTOMIZE.  More details will be made available regarding these modes at a later date!

Atlus also invited fans to meet up with them during both EVO 2K and Otakon to experience an early playable version and the chance to talk to King of Fighters XIII‘s director at EVO 2K (July 30 at 10AM PDT). This opportunity is great for fans to get a chance to play King of Fighters XIII and ask the questions that they have.

King of Fighters XIII is set for release this October for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Be sure to visit the official website for more details and stay tuned as we keep you up to date as its release draws near.
