King of Fighters XIII
The King of Fighters XIII is a 2D fighting game, and the thirteenth installment in The King of Fighters series which began in 1994 on the Neo Geo. The game includes a roster of over 30 characters, and while removing the Guard Attack, Critical Counter, and Clash System used in the earlier title, the game instead includes the EX Mode which converts a character's super moves into more powerful ones, the Drive Cancel which allows for new combos, and the Hyper Drive mode which enables unlimited use of Drive Cancels for a set period of time. The game is set following the events of The King of Fighters XI, and concludes the Ash Crimson story arc.
The King of Fighters XIII received positive reviews with an average score of 80%, praised for its visual style, the increased roster, and won several Game Awards and nominations.
This is a high 3-star rating. The King of Fighters XIII is arguably more difficult than its predecessor, mainly due to the skills required. While the majority of the trophies are rather straight forward and not too difficult, particularly for those with experience in the King of Fighters series, completing 200 trials in Trial mode is what will truly make or break your chances of obtaining the Platinum.
Expect roughly 30-40 hours, though this largely depends on your skills, as well as whether or not you are boosting the online trophies.
If you've played fighting games before, than you're probably familiar with the fact that the trophies can be earned in any order of your choosing. However, if you're in need of some direction, we recommend starting with the Tutorial and complete both the Basic and Gauge system. This will not only teach you the mechanics and controls of the game, but also unlock the You're Not So Bad trophy.
You can also customize your team, icon, and message to nab the It's About Time To Start trophy, then create 10 characters in Customize for the Here I Come Buddy trophy.
Working through and completing 100% of the Story mode will unlock both the Let's See What You've Got and Do You Understand Now? trophies. The choices you make during the story mode will affect which scenes you view, and you need all of them to get 100%. Check out the story mode scenes guide under our Links tab for further details.
Next, there are a number of Arcade mode related trophies. You'll need to get an SS at the victory screen to unlock both the Time Will Soon Turn To Ashes and After All You're Just Trash trophies. Others include a lot of grinding, such as for performing a set number of Cancels and special moves. Check out The King of Fighters XIII trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details.
Then, clearing Time Attack mode with 30 characters will earn you the You Can't Compare To me trophy, as well as the Looks Like I Was Just On Time trophy automatically.
In the Survival mode, defeating 35 characters will net you the I'm Enough For This Job trophy, as well as the I Will Execute My Mission trophy automatically.
Saving the hardest for last, is the Yes! I'm The Best trophy for clearing 200 trials in Trial mode. This is arguably the most difficult trophy in the game. Check out some of the guides and videos under our Links tab for assistance. Once you've gotten this trophy out of the way, the rest is all downhill.
Finally, simply mop-up any trophies you still have remaining.
At any point you can head online and work on the 13 online trophies. Doing these legitimately will require both skill and some luck, though they can be boosted as well. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you're looking for a partner.
