King Of Fighters-i (KOFXIII For iPhone ????)

Just came across this on's forums, a real suprise this one but Famitsu is reporting that a King of Fighters game titled 'King of Fighters-i' will be coming out soon for iPod/iPhone.

Judging from the screen shots there are about 14 characters from XIII, including Billy Kane, as well as the Kyokugen gym (Takuma's stage) from Art of Fighting 2.

Cut&Paste from

KOFXIII for iphone?

Reports coming in:

Billy skills
Sansetsukon Chuudan Uchi (Tri-Cane)[Ex]
Kaen Sansetsukon Chuudan Uchi (Tri-Cane Explosion)
Suzume Otoshi (Upper Cane) [Ex]
Senpuukon (Typhoon Cane)
Kyoushuu Hishou Kon (Flying Cane smasher)
Super: Chou Kaen Senpuu Kon (Final Hurricane Fire Cane) [EX]
Neomax: Dai Guren Senpuu kon

Additional Stages (not all):
95 Iori
96 Esaka
Rocky/desert area
AOF 2 Kyokugen Dojo (not sure if these are iphone exclusive.)

The frame rates/animation looks obviously lower quality than the arcade version but still it should be quite nice to have a portable version of KOFXIII. Price tag for Japan is set for about Y900 and should be released worldwide.

More news on this as i come across it.

[Edit]: Apparently it's already up on the Japanese App store @ 
I don't have any credit on my Japanese iTunes account so i can't check it out yet T_T

[Edit 2]: Some more news from Touch Arcade via DreamCancel's forums:

The Game is out in New Zealand. It should be out in US at about 11 PM EST and Europe at around 12 AM UK time. Size of the app is 224 MB.

Price in NZ is $10.99 which should translate to USD $7.99
