The King of Fighters XIV – Pre-Orders Now Available

The King of Fighters XIV – Pre-Orders Now Available

Are You Ready FOR The King of Fighters XIV Tournament!? You Are!? Well, That’s Great… but we still have over a month to go before the game comes out. However, we do have some good news today, because digital pre-orders for KOF XIV are now live on PSN!

Oh, and did we mention that digital pre-orders will come with two costumes and a dynamic PS4 theme for free? Those who pre-order the game digitally will receive the Nightmare Geese and Classic Kyo DLC costumes plus a dynamic KOF XIV PS4 theme for free! We even have a new trailer that shows Nightmare Geese raining down some purple-themed pain.

We’re also going to be at EVO 2016 in Las Vegas! Attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on time with SNK’s The King of Fighters XIV at the Atlus booth throughout the show. With tighter controls, improved Combo and MAX Mode mechanics, series first 3D graphics, and more, KOF XIV is ready for prime time at the fighting game community’s biggest stage.

In fact, we’ll have the latest build just for the show! For those looking for the thrill and agony of intense competition, we’ll be holding a side tournament on Saturday. Entry is free and there will be a prize for the top three.

Oh, and did we mention that the prize is cold hard cash? (Which, for security reasons, will be mailed to winners after EVO.)

  • 1st place prize: $1,400
  • 2nd place prize: $700
  • 3rd place prize: $350

There’s also an SNK panel featuring key developers and artists who worked on the long-running series, which will be immediately followed by an autograph session.

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 XIV has 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!
