Compare The King of Fighters XIV’s Updated Graphics

The King of Fighters XIV is set to see a major update early next year that will give a major overhaul to the fighting game’s graphics. A demo showing off these changes is coming in early 2017, but it’s already available in Asia (full details on how to download it here). This has led to fans creating some videos that showcase the drastic upgrades that SNK have made to the game.

We’ve embedded a video above comparing how Leona looked in the original release, and how the female combatant looks after the 1.10 update. Additional comparisons can be found on Sennen War‘s YouTube channel. The videos focus on several KoF characters including Yuri, Kyo, and Iori.

A demo that will showcase the upcoming changes is set to release in North America early next year. Here’s what it’ll include (description courtesy of the PlayStation Store):
