Get ready for the greatest fighting tournament on Earth, because SNK PLAYMORE and Atlus U.S.A. are partnering to bring THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV to the Americas later this year. KOF XIV marks the beginning of a new era for the series as it will be making its debut with 3D characters exclusively on PlayStation 4 systems!
Although the classic 3 vs. 3 battle system is unchanged in KOF XIV, the perfectionists at SNK PLAYMORE have made some notable updates to the fighting engine. From streamlining controls to improving the Combo and MAX Mode mechanics, the developers have worked tirelessly to bring hardcore fans and newcomers the most competitive, but accessible, game in KOF history. Did we mention that the graphics are now fully rendered in 3D? Players will beat their opponents senseless while experiencing the new visual style of the 50 fighters (all of whom are available in-game at launch), and movesets! There’s also a brand new Party Battle feature that lets two teams of three human players duke it out via online play. Speaking of which, KOF XIV will have vastly improved netcode for competitive level multiplayer to fully use the PS4’s online features.
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV will be released for PlayStation 4 consoles later this year. Atlus U.S.A. will publish the game in the Americas, and there will be more information to come later. The official website for the game is www.atlus.com/kofxiv. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB.
