King of Fighters XII’s roster is well endowed, chock-full of flamboyant asians

SNK Playmore recently revealed the full cast of fighting characters in The King of Fighters XII on their official website. In the above picture, you’ll notice that the cast is bunch of semi-happy looking dudes and dudettes.  How these characters muster up the will to fight each other is beyond my understanding.

It’s slated for a Japanese arcade release in April this year, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions shortly thereafter. The U.S. and European releases are being handled by Ignition Entertainment and are slated to hit at some point this year as well.

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to learn how to play a fighting game. I haven’t enlisted a sensei yet (I hear that Gerstmann fellow is pretty good) but I’m currently making progress in Super Street Fighter Turbo Remix HD Really Long Name II. I still haven’t gotten past the fourth fight on the Easy tier, but I did defeat Cammy the other night. That screwdriver thing she does is ridiculous.
