Mai looks crazy good in the new King of Fighters

KOF 13 Preview part 1

(Cross-posted from the other article I wrote, since the majority of the game info and changes are there)

This is just a preview since I don't have time right now to look at all the videos at the moment, but from what I can tell so far Mai Shiranui is looking really good.  She has a fake Ryuenbuu feint (which almost looks like her fireball animation) and these crazy air combo cancels into ground resets.  She's an offensive beast now! 

Oh uh, in case you haven't heard, King of Fighters XIII got announced, and a slew of loketests and previews are hitting up youtube.  Dengeki has an article (that I'll have to break down tomorrow) about the event, and cyberfanatix has a lot of good info on character changes and the like.  Oichi has some good stuff too, but I'm not sure who posted what first (otherwise I'd give credit for breaking the story).

In the video Mai cancels her 41236K (a.k.a. Burning Bees) into an air 214P attack.  I'm not sure if that's normal canceable on block, but if it is, it's going to be super abuseable and safe.  Add in MAX mode and the ability to cancel stuff that's not normally canceable, and she's the new mixup queen of death.

Tomorrow I'll try to post a bit more predictions on opinions on balances and character potential for the rest of the cast!
