SNK Playmore's latest entry in the long-running King of Fighters series won't make its previously scheduled October release. Publisher Atlus, no stranger to minor delays, has pushed The King of Fighters XIII to November 22.

Yes, that means you'll be waiting another month to get your hands on Mai, King, Saiki, Vice, K', Yuri, Maxima, and Billy Kane, as well as The King of Fighters XIII's hopefully improved online multiplayer mode and its NEO MAX super moves. Let's hope the wait for this 2D fighter for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is worth it this time.

November will be a busy month for fans of fighting games, with Tekken Hybrid also hitting on November 22 and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 hitting one week prior.
