KOF XIV General Discussion - King of Fighters XIV Arcade Ver. Burn 2 Fight cabinets from Taito!


The teaser doesn’t look good at all… But it’s really early footage. I actually liked Maximum Impact 2 and I’m okay with them not using sprites as long as the gameplay stays 2d.
Now they just have to bring back Rock and B.Jenet, and since Sony announced the game they should work on CVS3 too.


I honestly thought that we had another Kyo clone…until I realized that was actually Kyo…

As it was said, I don’t think anyone expected SNK to stick with sprites for KOFXIV. I did expect better 3D work than this though.

Whatever though, I want to see legit gameplay before I get too emo about it.


i dont get where everyones getting the ps2 vibe from, looks more like early ps3 title.

I’m slightly interested.


Animation outsourced to China…


Dude, they need Garou up in that joint. I’m praying my KOF XI team has a shot of being in lol.


KOFMIRA looks better than this and it’s nearly 10 years old.

I really hope the gameplay is good tho… but honestly I can’t have high expectations for new fighting games anymore.


fuc u guys
Because of the contentedness among posters and the lack of roasting, I went ahead and watched a second time to see if my eyes would see something different.

It was even worse the second time.


This is probably another KOF maximum impact game at this early stage. Please god…No dial-a-combo please…Thank you.


We will probably have to give up on the graphics and expect that the gameplay is good. That said, if SNKP sticks to its guns and doesn’t butcher the mechanics to appease to the noobs, then KOF XIV it’s already the best fighter by default.

Anyway, it is good to see KOF back when it was practically deceased. If anything, it can be used to oblige Capcom to release something decent with SF5 when it appeared to be the only big fighter coming soon.


Mai in 3D is gonna be awesome. So happy this game is coming. I feel like we’re hitting another boom period for Fighting Games - Tekken 7, Blazblue: Central Fiction, Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator, MKX, KI, SF5 and now KOF XIV. Keep 'em coming.


The aesthetics in Street Fighter 4 looked like shit and people still play it, so I don’t see why there’s a collective outcry of disgust over this.

Jury’s out until gameplay footage is posted.


Fucking hyped that we’re getting a new game period. Very sad to see that the awesome sprites KOF games are known for are gone.

Buuuut… now that both series have gone with 3D models…give me fucking CVS3!


Them not catering to anything other than hardcore audience was the exact reason SNK is where it’s at right now

Meanwhile, Street Fighter, mortal kombat and tekken are at their prime of popularity and it’s only gonna grow from now. Especially SF and MK


If previous rumors still hold water, this game will be much like 98, which is the greatest thing since sex.

I take that back, 98 is sex. There we go.


Yeah gonna chalk it up to being very work in progress. Still hype tho


Sadly, I don’t think either the hardcore or casual audience will accept this graphics quality.



Shit looks like they made the teaser the day before they showed it.


SFIV also came out in 2008. A game made in 2015 shouldn’t look like a game made in 2006, especially a AAA title.



SFIV also had the excuse that they were trying to copy a specific artists art style. KoFIV as it stands now looks to be generic mid-2000s Japanese 3D character design.


It really looks to me like SNK hired the XDZW guys to make the art direction look like KOF x Virtua Fighter. It looks awful.

I’m hoping it changes. It honestly looks like they’re trying to cel shade the models and failing hard. Surely they get it figured out before they release it, because this looks horribad.
