During the SCEJA press conference SNK Playmore lifted the lid on something we’ve all been wondering about by showing off a King of Fighters XIV TGS trailer. It’s a very short trailer, but at the same time it’s a lot to take in. King of Fighters XIV will be releasing for PlayStation 4 some time in 2016.
The main takeaway is that King of Fighters isn’t in 2D anymore. That doesn’t mean the gameplay won’t still be awesome, but it’s kind of a shame, as King of Fighters was one of the last sprite-based fighting games around. It doesn’t look like it will be making as stylish a transition to 3D as Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- did either, which is kind of a shame.
But we’ll hold out judgement until we can see more than a few seconds of gameplay at a time. It is King of Fighters after all!
