SNK Playmore releases the latest installment of the King of Fighters series as KOF XI returns with new and old characters to join the fight. The visuals have been improved and the gameplay has been enhanced. A 5th button is now the thrust attack (CD) from previous games as well as guard and stun meters added to increase the action.

Skill points now exist with a max of two and they build on their own as well as giving you three options to use. Quick shift allows an immediate tag-in to extend combos, Saving shift interrupts an opponents attack if it connects, and Dream Cancel allows a super move to cancel into the team leader's LDM. With added modes and options, fans of KOF will surely find this one worthy for their collection.

    From the publisher: Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria is set before the predecessor, when the ruined city Dipan was still a busy and prosperous city. The valkyrie Silmeria found herself taking an opposing stance against the lord of the gods, Odin and was forcibly reborn in the body of the princess of Dipan, Alicia. Unexpectedly, the spirit of Silmeria that was supposed to be sealed suddenly awakened, creating the situation of both a god and a human residing in the same body. And of course, Odin would not just sit there and do nothing, and so he sent out the leader of the 3 female gods of destiny, Ary. What lies in store for Silmeria and Alicia?
