.html We thought this U.S. debut trailer for The King of Fighters XII was just going to be an excuse to ogle the SNK Playmore game's beautifully animated characters. How naive we were.

That's because the game apparently has a North American release window, which was, frankly, (good) news to this casual King of Fighters observer. The trailer dates The King of Fighters XII for a PlayStation 3 release this Summer.

Ignition Entertainment lists no other platforms on which KOF XII will "kick. some. ass.", but we'll bug them for clarification. While we wait... WOOO! SUMMER!!!
