The King of Fighters XIII I love this game. Love it so much I couldn’t help but notice characters in the background. This game has a bunch of random characters in the background not just from the KOF series but also from Last Blade, Samurai Showdown, Art of Fighting, Metal Slug, Savage Reign, and Fatal Fury series.
Hit the jump to view the GallerySome of the images in the Gallery are from DLC stages that aren’t available in America and can only be seen online matches such as the street, esaka, and the temple. I was somehow fortunate not only to see but to get those images for you crazy kids. Now a rundown of the characters that appear in the stages and I will label them as seen from left to right on the screen of the stage but the images may be a little out of order(ie alphabetical :P). Also take note they usually appear randomly on the stage in the same spots and won’t always be there every round.
