SNK has revealed that they will be announcing a new The King of Fighters XIV next month, during EVO Japan 2018. The event will run from January 26 to January 28, so it’ll be a little more than a month before the reveal. Not only will the character be announced, though–SNK will also have a booth set up so that EVO goers will be able to try the new character out!
Siliconera has a bit more information on the SNK booth:
In addition to having the new DLC character be playable, SNK will have all kinds of original goods that fans can purchase at the event. Evo Japan 2018 runs from January 26-28 but SNK’s booth will only be available on the January 26-27.
While you’re waiting on the new The King of Fighters DLC character, read our review on the fighting game:
While SFV launched without key features (and still lacks genre standards such as versus play against the computer and an arcade mode), there is no doubt that The King of Fighters XIV is a finished package. It has a roster of 50 characters that range from beloved regulars like Terry Bogard and Kyo Kusanagi to fantastic new additions like Antonov, a gigantic Russian billionaire who buys the right to the King of Fighters tournament and is hosting the latest incarnation. All of these characters can be used in a wide range of modes both online and offline.
