After a few months of pooling through the data, Fatacon and I have finished our analysis of all the data collected during the #KOFSurvey. It took as a while. However, with the brand new changes just a few days away, we wanted to publish this asap. Special thanks to all the collaborators who helped with translating, sharing, and giving so much advice. A very special thanks to KPB|Zidiane who acted as the editor for the final product. Please note: This goes over the English survey data and uses figures from them. We may make a comparison analysis at a later date.
#KOFSurvey was a community initiative started on October 6th, 2016 and ended formally in January 2017. Users entered in information on their general experience with “The King of Fighters XIV” at that time as well as what they would need to watch, learn, and play more KOF. We successfully gathered more than 4,000 unique entries spanning over 7 different languages such as Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and even Turkish!
#KOFSurvey Analysis Article
For the tl;dr – Our whole community has to step up and work together. We have so many communities spanning over the entire globe; we can accomplish so much when we’re all on the same page. My next goal is to make that collaborative.
For our player spotlight, we are highlighting a man whose excitement for KOF is pure, exciting, and infectious.
A content producer that I’m excited to shine some light on is Ignant Rizzy. Rizzy is a fighting game enthusiast that has been producing KOF content since the initial announcement. His reaction videos, for this author, were entertaining and refreshing. Since launch, he’s been posting videos of his adventures online playing KOF and improving. Ignant Rizzy has a talent to treat his viewers like you’re one of the gang. As a listener, Rizzy treats his viewers like good friends and speaks his mind genuinely about every topic. There’s so much enjoyment to be had in watching someone have fun, and Rizzy has a LOT of fun playing KOF.
If you’d like to watch his reactions to the KOF trailers or if you’d like to see some of his latest play time, check the vid and the links below. Be sure to watch his vids, drop a like, follow him on Twitch, Youtube, and all the things. This is Reiki, and I’m out! Peace!
News was released in a press conference by SNK Playmore. The build used to demonstrate King of Fighters XIV at the Taipei Game Show will also be the first look at the Traditional Chinese version of the game. We will report on more as it becomes available, but this may mean Mandarin voice actors and Traditional Chinese text used for the user interface.
Earlier this morning, SNK Playmore published news concerning the next playable demo location for King of Fighters XIV. The next demonstration location will be at the Taipei Game Show in Taiwan on Friday, January 29th, 2016 to Tuesday, February 2nd.
The Taipei Game Show (TpGS) is the only game show in the country of Taiwan and one of the first gaming show cases of the year. Over 130 companies have signed up to present at this event worldwide. TpGS is hosted at the Taipei World Trade Center: Hall 1.
