Ladies and gentlemen, 50 fighters are ready to meet in The King of Fighters XIV, coming August 23 on PS4!
While preserving the classic 2D gameplay and three-on-three team battles that made the King of Fighters series popular, The King of Fighters XIV brings a fresh change to the series with full 3D visuals. It also includes a wide variety of multiplayer and online features for the best King of Fighters experience yet!
The King of Fighters XIV marks the first chapter in a brand new saga, so you’d better come prepared.
Here’s a little backstory…
KOF has become a major business, generating huge profits and numerous spin-off tournaments worldwide. However, this led to a lowering of the overall quality, and voices began to rise across the globe demanding the formation of one unique, worldwide KOF competition.
One day, a billionaire claiming to be the “first champion” bought out all of the rights for the KOF Tournament. His name: Antonov. The announcement of a new KOF Tournament by the self-proclaimed champion created unprecedented enthusiasm around the world. From there, this excitement reached many of the classic participants of the legendary tournament directly in the form of an official invitation…
Here’s a quick look at what else is in store for players in The King of Fighters XIV:
- 50 Fighters — King of Fighters returns with a gorgeous roster of 50 characters. Besides the returning fan favorites, numerous new combatants join the roster.
- Nakoruru, one of the heroines from the Samurai Shodown series, joins the fight along with her fellow hawk companion Mamahaha!
- Shun’ei is a new character who will play an important role in the game’s story.
- Plus, numerous emblematic and original characters prepare to duke it out in the KOF tournament!
3-on-3 Team Battle
The series’ traditional three-on-three Team Battle system is back in The King of Fighters XIV, so that 50 character roster is gonna come in very handy when picking out your best team.
