Ask and you shall receive.

Atlus has revealed in their press release that SNK Playmore is working on a patch for the netcode in King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII). No other details have been revealed, but Atlus assures fans of the franchise that more information will be available soon.

There have been numerous complaints from players about the lag they get while playing KoF XIII online. Some have gone as far as to say most matches are unplayable.

The press release also reveals that a demo for KoF XIII is now available on Xbox Live. Those on PSN will have to wait until Dec. 13. The demo features six characters (K', Kula, Maxima, Terry, Andy, Joe) and two stages (London, Airship).

If that wasn't enough to warrant a download, the demo also features online play which is of course in the process of being tweaked.
