The King of Fighters XIV

SNK has released the first in a series of “Team Gameplay” trailers for The King of Fighters XIV . This one introduces the Japan Team.

Here are details about each character:

  • Kyo Kusanagi – Kyo Kusanagi is the legitimate heir of the ancestral arts of the Kusanagi clan. Despite his seemingly rude and arrogant demenanor, he has innate gifts for fighting, and can reduce any of his opponents into ashes via his pyrotechnic skills. Iori Yagami is his “eternal enemy”.
  • Benimaru Nikaido – Born of American and Japanese parents, Benimaru is a young son of a multi-millionaire family. This genius fighter specializes in shooting and electricity-based techniques. Benimaru is also Kyo’s best friend and friendly rival.
  • Goro Daimon – Former gold medalist in judo at the Olympic Games, Goro decided one day to improve his discipline by adding new techniques such as “tremendous earthquakes”. He later joined Kyo and Benimaru to participate in the KOF Tournament. Goro always seems to have a very serious expression, but he is a hard-worker.

The King of Fighters XIV is due out for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 23 and in Japan on August 25.
