The next iteration into The King of Fighters franchise, The King of Fighters XIII, will feature over 30 characters. This is a step up from the last game which only featured around 20.
People who pre-order the game in Japan will also be entitled to an additional character, but it's unknown if this deal will also be offered when the game releases in North America.
The game is due out on the 25th of October in North America, two days before the Japanese release. However, no European launch has been mentioned.
