The King of Fighters XIV

SNK has released the tenth in its series of “Team Gameplay” trailers for The King of Fighters XIV. This one introduces the South Town Team.

The South Town Team includes Geese Howard, Billy Kane, and the newly introduced Hein, detailed below via Atlus:

  • Geese Howard – he notorious crime lord from South Town who reminds me of a villain from a popular 1980s karate kids movie. He utilizes the Hakkyokuseiken style, and mercilessly brutalizes unlucky opponents with a mix of electric strikes and throws. Geese is big, bad, and ready to prove that he’s the strongest fighter on the planet by crushing the competition in the tournament.
  • Billy Kane – The bandana wearing Billy wields a tri-section staff which he uses to teach opponents all about his Bojutsu mastery and affinity for fire.
  • Hein – Hein is ready to fight with his chess inspired fighting style called “Gambit.” When he’s not busy adjusting his glasses and fixing his tie, Hein puts his lanky limbs to deadly use and also appears to control some sort of dark-red energy in combat.

If you missed it, previous trailers introduced Mexico Team, South America Team, Official Invitation Team, Villains Team, Kim Team, Art of Fighting Team, Fatal Fury Team, Yagami Team, and Japan Team.

The King of Fighters XIV is due out for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 23, in Japan on August 25, and in Europe on August 26.
