King of Fighters XIV + KOF vs Persona? + 15 Minutes of DOOM!

Would this be sick... or would this be sick? It isn't real... but 
who knows, we may see a versus from ATLUS & SNK soon enough.



I am excited about a new King of Fighters game (especially with ATLUS in the fold)... I just don't want it to have DLC... for sale. While ATLUS should bring the franchise increased support (even out of curiousity), King of Fighters XIV can make a power move back into a slot of what can be considered... a household name if the game is awesome and is known for delivering a complete package (or at least one that doesn't need additional purchases for the entire experience.

I don't want to say that it wouldn't be without DLC, but the ability to have everything for the game you've purchased without buying additional... would be a win in my book. Look at the various fighting games that require additional purchases to gain characters, etc. Now... compare a complete package versus one that... can be completed for an additional price.

They have an opportunity to take KOF to a new level. A level it should be after all these years (which should include loosening up some characters).

Considering the fact that KOFXIV is being brought to us by (SEGA) ATLUS, it would be sick to see some crossover VS action like... KOF vs Persona Arena perhaps.

Oh, and Two New Videos!

The old guard of SNK's THE KING OF FIGHTERS series shows off their new 3D look while repping Team Japan in THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV in the latest trailer. 

Series mainstays Kyo, Benimaru, and Daimon are looking bigger, badder, and beastlier than ever thanks to the 3D graphical upgrade in KOF XIV, and with this latest trailer, you'll get a sample of Kyo's fiery power, Benimaru's electric speed, and Daimon's well...let's just say that you don't want to make him angry (unless you like being on the receiving end of devastating tech throw combos). 

And in case you missed it the last time around, here are the top-line refinements for THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV:

  • 3D Evolution: All 50 fighters, movesets and more are rendered in full 3D graphics that preserves the essence of KOF's visual style but updates it with a whole new dimension.
  • The Best Refinement since KOF '98: Through extensive playtesting and balancing, the controls have been streamlined, and the Combo and Max Mode mechanics have been overhauled to create the most competitive fighter in SNK's history.
  • The KOF Saga Continues: There's a robust single-player storyline where several years have passed since the previous KOF tournament. Now a worldwide business, the global KOF will decide who is the strongest as both individuals and companies with their own ambitions have come to compete. Players compete against CPU-controlled opponents to unlock the storyline.
  • The Best Roster Yet: There are 50 fighters total, with 31 returning from previous entries into the KOF series, and 19 brand new characters. All 50 characters will be available at the game's launch.
  • Revamped Online Experience: THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIVhas devoted a lot of development time to improving the game's netcode for vastly improved online gameplay. KOF XIV uses the PS4's online architecture to have a whole host of online conveniences, from spectating to saving replay/battle data, and having a single online KOF XIV profile to connect with friends.
The game will be $59.99/CA$79.99 at launch. Pre-orders and a limited number of launch editions will arrive in this special SteelBook™ case. Plus, for the week following launch, the Classic Kyo costume DLC will be free to all players!





Also, Koch Media Will Be Publishing KOF XIV in Europe!You heard right, for our European fans waiting for news with bated breath, our friends at Deep Silver announced earlier today that they'll be publishing THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV in Europe, complete with SteelBook® case for pre-orders and limited launch copies! 
The scratch-happy Team Yagami is looking to win it all in THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV's newest trailer.
Diehard fans of KOF will recognize Iori Yagami, Mature, and Vice from the early games, but they sure look fine, fresh, and fierce showing off their skills in 3D. The trailer showcases the scorching purple fury of Iori, the dizzying brutality of Vice, and vicious cat-like clawing of Mature. Watch the bad girls and boy of Team Yagami dish out some brutal combos to the sweet sultry sounds of "Saxophone Under the Moon"!
