[Video Games]: King of Fighters XIV – First Impression

The 14th installment of SNK’s King of Fighters franchise is set to drop on August 23, 2016. Other than a few lucky pro players, not a lot of people have had hands on time with this game so I was really excited when I heard there was a demo available on the Playstation Network. People seem to be anticipating this games release, so I got together with a friend to play a couple versus matches and see what KOF XIV is hittin’ for.

I was surprised when I saw that there were 7 characters available for me to play around with. I immediately gravitated towards Mai and Shun’ei and fell in love with how fast and technical the game is. If you don’t know much about KOF XIV and would like to see it in action, check out the video above for some uninterrupted gameplay along with commentary.

This game is going to have a pretty huge roster size when it finally releases. That’s pretty refreshing given the current trend of games coming out with only a few characters at launch before more are added as DLC.

I’ll definitely be picking this game up when it drops. For more on fighting games, or just to see whatever i’m playing, follow me on Twitter @SpiegelDFE.
