Ah Twitter, how we love thee. For instance, instead of a long-winded press release which serves no purpose other than to state a launch date, a company could just say, “Hey, our game is coming July 28th!”
Oh look, that’s just what SNK did to finalize the date for King of Fighters XII, a spiffy visually updated sequel to one of the greatest fighting franchises ever. That date is all encompassing, meaning both PS3 and Xbox 360 owners can jump on the fighting bandwagon on the same day. And yes, thankfully there is no thousand word press release needed to announce a date… which is sort of what this post is… looking back, that is slightly hypocritical isn’t it?
