Atlus has officially announced, through a reveal trailer, that the next DLC fighter making their way to the King of Fighters XIV roster will be Vanessa. She is the third DLC character announced for KOF XIV and joins Whip and Yamazaki as the title’s first three DLC characters.
Vanessa first appeared in the series in The King of Fighters ’99 Evolution but was first playable in The King of Fighters 2000. She is a housewife turned mercenary agent who uses boxing as her fighting style. In KOF XIV, she keeps the same outfit and red hair as her original appearance.
No release date has been announced for Vanessa, but she should be released sometime after both Whip and Yamazaki. Whip is scheduled to be available starting April 5, 2017.
