SNK has revealed that The King of Fighters XII will arrive in Japan on July 30.
Originally slated for July 16, SNK wanted to polish the PS3 and Xbox 360 title a bit more before releasing it.
Being published by Ignition in the US and Canada, it’s slated for a “summer” release.

SNK and Ignition just confirmed that The King of Fighters XII will release this July for both 360 and PS3.
The game was rumoured as a summer launch for PS3 this morning.
“Our development slogan for KOFXII is ‘KOF Re-Birth’ and we’ve aimed to create an entirely new King of Fighters game. To make this a truly unique fighting game, we’ve revolutionized the graphics by creating state of the art visuals – and made no compromises in that process whatsoever,” said SNK Playmore boss, Masaaki Kukino.
The handdrawn fighter is nothing short of beautiful. This is very good news.
Press release after the drop.

The King of Fighters XII trailer after the break – which looks blinking stupendulous – apparently shows the game as having a summer release date for PS3.
We say “apparently,” because the “summer” bit looks distinctly stuck on. So does the “PlayStation 3″ bit, if we’re being honest.
The game was always pegged for a 2009 release for both PS3 and 360.
Take a look.

Fancy. More through there.

Here. They’re taken from Famitsu, and give a first proper look at that 100 percent hand drawn art style. Looking good. Arcades this year, consoles in 2009.
