The King of Fighters XIII, which seems to have made quite a splash at the last Evo tournament, has hit the digital circuit for 360 and PS3. The fighter, released last year in retail, has launched on Live Marketplace and PS Store for $29.99—a cool ten bucks less than the physical version.
Square Enix has announced a number of system-specific features for the PC version of their upcoming third-person action title Sleeping Dogs. In addition to a high-resolution texture pack update, which will improve, amongst other things, item rendering and shadows, the PC version will support dual and quad-core setups, SLI and Crossfire, key mapping, 3D, and multiple monitors. The full details of what all United Front Games has in store for PC gamers, including minimum and recommended specs, can be found below.
Persona 4 Arena, a 2D fighter set in the Shin Megami Tense universe, is now available for 360 and PS3. Co-developed by Atlus and genre veteran Arc System Works, the studio behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena is a hand-drawn fighter featuring the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4. Arena hasn’t forgotten its role-playing roots, either, as fighters can become afflicted with such traits as poison and panic. The home version also includes a 30-plus-hour Story mode, as well as Challenge mode and Lesson mode.
Silent Hill fans who picked up the HD Collection for the PS3 can now download a bug-fixing title update. The patch addresses problems with the frame rate, audio synching, and “other reported issues.” Xbox 360 gamers, however, are out of luck as there will be no forthcoming patch. According to Konami, the update will not be hitting Live because of “technical issues and resources.”
Codemasters has announced that Grid 2 is currently in full development for 360, PC, and PS3. The sequel will bring back the Flashback time-rewind feature from the original, as well as feature four decades’ worth of selected rides from Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Players will race on courses from licensed circuits around the world, with tracks hosted in such locales as Abu Dhabi, California, Miami, and Paris.
