Is that schedule for streams?

It will probably just be playable at the Sony/Atlus booth like at the other events with no official stream.

I doubt it's just for streams. And even then, every streaming even kof xiv was in gave it a little spotlight.

I couldn't find anything related to KOF, Atlus or SNK. Probably there's a booth by either company where it is playable. I hope it gets some exposure, I'm really itching for some good quality footage.

I'm no longer confident we'll get the updated build for PAX East. It seems I was wrong as to the event on the 25th. It's one specifically for KOF XIV. So I doubt they'll show off that build before the event.

Oh well.

Here's the 24 characters that will be playable. I'm very surprised with the list. Characters like Athena, Kim and K! are in, that's great as they never looked finished when they were shown. Lots of new blood too.

Shiranui_ninja will be happy.

@marchefelix That's what I'm thinking too, at least we might catch a video or two.

Wonder what the hot information will be on 25th. I'm hoping for system break down and release date.

Yay! Good selection of characters and every new that has been announced. I really hope we get lots of footage and that people get adventurous with their selected characters.

Yeah me too. But the people that want to actually win the tournament will probably pick Kim, Ryo, Iori, andy or Leona :)

This I don't wish to see.

PS Those graphics shaders have come along way.

No one knows how Kim plays right now that is way too rushed too say, if anything I'd say King / Clark are the best soft counters to most. Andy also seems very well rounded in this instalment.

I think it's more like K', Iori, Kula and Kyo. They seems to play quite similar compared to previous instalments, so they might be safe bets. Haven't seen K' in action yet, but think he will be popular pick in early stages.

King also seems quite solid, but my judgement might be slightly biased, because I like King so much :) Clark seems to be more pure grappler this time, so I don't expect that much of him, although I've always viewed him as dark horse.

And shaders have com long way. Kinda nice to see how the look of game has evolved.

True about Kim... I forgot all about king.

I forgot K' has his mid combo overhead back. Clark seems to have some of his 2k2um moves, if so then he is gonna have a lot of easy confirms / punishes. Basically 13 Clark on crack. Running three has mid air grab potential like his neo max in Xiii. If they give him those moves AND the armor grab is back its overkill if the player has so much as played clark a few times. I'm just wondering what his climax is.

Indeed. I'm so so happy :D
I wasn't expecting Mai to be payable since she was announced a week ago. But I guess yesterday's screenshot was a hint... I wonder why King isn't in the list. Maybe they are doing some changes on her?

This is why I cannot wait for the movelists. If Clark has frankensteiner and hcf+p rush grab (I've seen a vid of the throw so it might be), that'll be a good competent Clark to play. If he also has hcf+B grab from XIV then maybe they could make his attacks slow like in 02 to balance him.

Is it nearly time to start adding character & special move threads to the forum?
