In keeping with the long, storied tradition of releasing PC versions of fighting games long after they've been released everywhere else, King of Fighters 13 Steam Edition is now available for PC, nearly two years after its console release in late 2011. Steam Edition will run you $30 and includes upgraded Story, Training and Online modes, as well as new graphical options for ensuring smooth performance.

Steam Edition also includes three packed-in DLC characters: Old-school Iori Yagami, NESTS Style Kyo (read: KOF '99 moves) and Mr. Karate. The game has Steam Trading Cards as well, which means the money you earn selling Mai Shiranui cards can be put towards Thai lessons for King of Fighters Online.
