Ignition has pushed the European release of King of Fighters XII back to 25th September. The fighting game had been penned in for a late August release.

The 12th instalment builds on the long-running series by redrawing all the character sprites in fabulous detail. There are numerous new acrobatic moves to smash the face of your opponent with, too.

But can it stand up to the excellent Street Fighter IV and BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger?

Eurogamer's Matt Edwards likes a fight, so we put the game and question to him. Head over to his King of Fighters XII review to find out more.
