While The King of Fighters doesn’t have the 3D graphics of other fighters, it does have its followers. SNK Playmore and Atlus have been addressing the network issues, and today they have a new update.
According to ATLUS and developer SNK PLAYMORE, 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, the next DLC character to be made available, would be delayed until 1/10 due to a technical error. The Xbox LIVE® Marketplace release (12/20) of the DLC will not be affected.
