Atlus today released new information regarding the upcoming online patch for The King of Fighters XIII Patch Incoming, PS3 DLC To Get Delayed, the latest entry in the legendary fighting franchise, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
According to Atlus and developer SNK, the patch will seek to make the game’s network infrastructure more consistent for users, ensuring that the evaluation given connections is more accurate to the actual play experience. Moreover, the patch will introduce ranked host-side filtering, eliminating the frustration of match hosts unable to avoid matches with players with poor connections. In addition to a number of other improvements, the update will also address a number of rare glitches reported since the game’s release. No release date currently exists for the update, but Atlus reports that the developer is making every effort to release the patch as soon as possible.
Atlus also today revealed that the North American PlayStation Network release of NESTS Kyo has been delayed.
“We apologize to our PlayStation 3 system KOF XIII fans for the slight delay of the next downloadable character,” stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at ATLUS. “In gratitude to our fans for their patience, we will be discounting the NESTS Kyo character to $2.99 for a limited time when it is finally released in the North American PlayStation Store on 1/10.”
