King of Fighters XIII is the last entry in the "Ash Saga". While it resembles XII graphically, all of XII's new systems (clash, critical counter, guard attack) have been removed. The developers stated that their concept for the game was "KOF-ism," so many classic KOF systems return, such as guard cancel rolls and guard cancel attacks. Hyperdrive mode is modeled on 2002's BC mode, while Max Cancels resemble XI's Dream Cancels. Finally, new to the series are EX moves (more powerful special moves costing one bar) and Drive Cancels (canceling from one special to another).

Atlus published King of Fighters XIII in North America on November 22, 2011. An updated re-release featuring rollback netcode called The King of Fighters XIII Global Match was released worldwide on November 16, 2023.
