King of Fighters XII to have DLC, platform-specific modes

According to Joystiq, SNK will be incorporating both downloadable content and platform-specific game modes in the upcoming PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 release of King of Fighters XII.

Exact details as to what the DLC will include have yet to be released, though new game options, costumes and possibly additional characters are the most likely candidates.

Most intriguing, however, is the addition of console specific online modes, with Sony’s black box receiving a ‘Clan’ option not featured in the Xbox 360 release. To even the odds, however, Microsoft’s console has bagged itself a ‘Ranked Match’ mode.

As reported previously on PSU, both versions will be receiving extra characters not included in the original Arcade release.

King of Fighters XII is due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 this summer.
