The King of Fighters XIII is coming out in PAL territories on 25th November 2011, but almost a month before this cosplayers are being sent an invitation to fight for their honour (and prizes no doubt!) courtesy of Rising Star Games.

The ‘Totally Cosplay‘ stage at the London MCM Expo will host a King of Fighters cosplay contest on Saturday 29th October. The winner will be decided on costume accuracy and displaying the nature of the character – be it the pride and nobility of Elisabeth Blanctorche; the dark hearted ambition of Ash Crimson; or whomever you want to bring to life from the extensive King of Fighters cast, which is over 30 strong in this latest chapter.

“It’s great to have more cosplay contests at the Expo, as more people can get involved,” enthused Granny Gertrude of the MCM Cosplay Team. “We’re hoping for an entertaining show from the many fans of this series of games – we’re looking for passion and taking on the role of the character instead of craftsmanship for this contest, which opens it up to everyone that wants to take part. No doubt someone will try to pair me off as the Queen of Cosplay as the partner to whoever is declared the cosplay King of Fighters!”
