While few people can deny that King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII) is a fun fighter, the same enthusiasm can not be shared with the game's netcode.
Fans of KoF XIII have been experiencing issues when connecting online with the game. There has been numerous complaints of matches being unplayable due to lag.
While the developers of the game, SNK Playmore have yet to respond, North American publisher, Atlus USA has released a statement regarding the game's poor online performance.
View the statement after the jump:
We have been carefully monitoring dialogue and feedback regarding the online play in THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII. While the general consensus is that KOF XIII is one of if not the best entry in the series and that the netcode is noticeably improved over the previous iteration, we're saddened to hear that many of our fans are frustrated with their online experiences thus far.
Just as it was in the months prior to the game's release, we will do everything within our influence to help developer SNK PLAYMORE test and continue to improve KOF XIII's network performance. To this end, the detailed feedback we've received is invaluable.
We greatly appreciate the dedication of players who are diligently reporting their online experiences, and we sincerely thank the community for all of the passion and support it has offered us and THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII.
