EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

De­vel­oper SNK Pub­lisher Deep Sil­ver For­mat PS4 Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease Au­gust 26 Gen­er­ally speak­ing, the one-on-one fighter has chis­elled deeper into its niche of late. Im­pen­e­tra­ble com­plex­ity isn’t do­ing the num­bers, how­ever, so it’s no sur­prise to see SNK fol­low its peers in cast­ing its net wider, with a sim­ple Rush Combo me­chanic de­signed to ac­com­mo­date new­com­ers. Ex­ist­ing fans will likely be pleased that KOFXIII’s Hyper Drive sys­tem has been re­placed by a re­fined ver­sion of pre­vi­ous en­tries’ Max Mode, though purists may balk at a shift to 3D ren­der­ing. Deep Sil­ver is a sur­pris­ing choice of pub­lish­ing part­ner; hope­fully, the game’s Euro­pean mar­ket­ing cam­paign hits the ap­pro­pri­ate notes for a sto­ried se­ries.
