I was stumped when I first popped in the King of Fighters XIII and played around with Iori Yagami. He usually plays pretty much identically to Kyo but for some reason none of his signature techniques were at my disposal. He’s usually spouting purple flames right and left and terrorizing opponents with his mid-to-long range arsenal, but he’s a lot less interesting this time around. The Iori we know and love has returned to KOF via DLC. Starting today, players can download Iori with the Power of Flames from the PSN store or Xbox Marketplace for $5 or 400 MSP respectively.
A new stage, new music and Iori himself will be included in your purchase. Flaming Iori will be the first of a number of characters to be released as downloadable content for the King of Fighters XIII. The forthcoming characters are rumored to be Shin Kyo and Mr. Karate. Fans of this title might want to put some thought into purchasing Iori with Flames, as he’s a lot more fun to play with than the ‘other’ Iori.
