Hardcore fighting fanatics already got Street Fighter IV earlier this year and Tekken 6 is slated to drop in October. But the true purists have a special place in their heart for old-school fighters like The King of Fighters XII. A beautiful and challenging title, this is for those of you who love fast-paced brawling, colorful Japanese characters, and rapid-fire combos. It'll be out in just a few weeks time and if you're still on the fence concerning a purchase, take a look at this new Legacy Trailer. It's animated brutality at its finest and if you've got the reflexes and ambition to master the gameplay, you will be richly rewarded. ...well, in terms of reputation amongst your fellow gamers, anyway.
