Orochinagi.com’s Gunsmith nabbed an exclusive interview with SNKP and Altus, the creators and publishers of the upcoming console version of King of Fighters XIII. What can Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 owners expect from the console port? The two companies also address the netcode question;
GS: Are you aware of GGPO?
AJ: We are absolutely aware of the GGPO SDK, and we would like to stress to the community that both SNK PLAYMORE and ATLUS are extremely focused on improving how latency is handled and eliminating the inconsistency and instability of fighting games’, particularly XII’s, online experience.
KY: I’m in complete agreement with ATLUS. As I said earlier, we consider stable, quality online play as the key factor in the console version KOF XIII. We promise that it will be improved from the previous installment.
