At EVO Japan 2023 this weekend, SNK announced it would be releasing The King of Fighters XIII Global Match for the Switch.

It's released a teaser trailer, which you can view above (warning: flashing lights). This new version will include overhauled rollback netcode and improved online functionality. There's no release date just yet, but an open beta test will be taking place in "early summer 2023".

You can watch how this reveal unfolded on the official EVO Twitch channel. It takes place around the 09:15:20 mark.

The King of Fighters XIII originally started out as an arcade release in 2010 and was ported to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a year later. When we learn more about Global Match for the Switch, we'll let you know.
