Just saw this over on Orochinagi just now, that apparently someone over in France has already gotten their hands on the debug version of KOFXIII and is saying that Saiki will be playable on the console version.
Although we already know Saiki is in the game, what this person is saying is that it will be the non muscular red boss version...So maybe a palette/head swap of Ash ?
Also apparently he is reporting that there is also a HD version/update of the Esaka stage from KOF96.
So...With possibly 2 playable versions of Ash, and possibly 2 versions of Iori...All we need now is the Kyo clone trio...xD
Check out the original post (in French) for more details.
Finally just to note i've updated the Technical References and Neo Geo Station pages with the latest videos, i've also removed the links page and moved it back to the side bar, and added some sharing buttons for various social networking sites.
So if you want to (and you should) share links to my blog you can now do so with the click of a button. :)
