King of Fighters XII still for August

Euro date a month after new US one.

Ignition Entertainment has told Eurogamer that King of Fighters XII is still set for European release on 28th August despite an earlier US launch.

As reported on the game's Twitter, KOFXII will arrive on US shelves on 28th July.

Seems a shame to wait - we're keen to see how the game's hand-drawn 2D approach and 15th-anniversary billing do at the difficult job of usurping Street Fighter IV.

Look out for our review soon - hopefully just after the US release.
