AtlusUSA just released the a new King of Fighters XIV trailer, revealing Blue Mary as the final DLC character for version 3.0!
Blue Mary makes her triumphant return to THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV as a DLC character! Born into a family of accomplished martial artists, she is a specialist in several techniques but excels in the grappling fighting style of Sambo. Watch Blue Mary take down her opponents in the latest trailer.
Blue Mary will be available for purchase as DLC on April 12th. This will bring the total playable roster to a whopping 58 fighters!
SNK has just released a trailer of Najd, a new mysterious Saudi Arabian fighter who was designed by a contest winner a few months back.
Najd is a very quiet person dressed with an Abaya (traditional Saudi garment) with extraordinary powers. At night, she puts on her Abaya and turns into a vigilante to protect her fellow citizens. In contrast to her mysterious appearance, she is a college student during the day.
Also released is a video of Najd’s voice actress explaining more about the character, and has footage from a recording session:
For a while, many players have been concerned about upcoming support of King of Fighters XIV, but now with the past announcement of the new Saudi Arabian female character, it makes sense now that a version 3.0 will be released sometime in 2018! There aren’t any details on version 3.0 at the moment.
The joker in the poster is bringing speculation to many players wondering if it will be a different, NEW DLC character to be playable or announced, or if it will be just the Saudi Arabian Character.
So KOF14 3.0 gets announced with a Joker card as an accompanying graphic?
– Overall character balance (focus on 1st bach DLC characters) – New backgrounds (Najd stage + new ones) – New BGMs – New characters – Small input lag reduction – Make all rolls universal@snk_oda@wtnbUG_@Neo_G_3 Onegai 🙏
Lots of King of Fighters XIV players have been wondering if developmental support for the game was ending, but it seems that new DLC will be added to the game! A new female fighter from Saudi Arabia (with a complimented stage) will be joining the cast of characters sometime in the future. The fighter was designed from a social media contest winner for a possibly new fighting game title, but now the character has been chosen to join KOFXIV. The character’s stage will be included as DLC also.
What do you think of this? How do you feel about this new character? Do you think there will be more new characters added? Do you think there may be a balance patch and/or an update on the rest of the game?
For those interested in learning DLC character Vanessa, Coliflowerz has created a very informative tutorial video that outlines uses of all her normal moves, command moves, special moves and super special moves (include Climax)! This video also shows you some basic combos and tips that will help you learn how to play Vanessa!
This was a doozy… I tried to skim the video down as much as i could while still giving you all the info you need, or else you’d be watching for a good 20 minutes! I hope it’s comprehensible.
If you have trouble doing cr. C xx hcf AC, try inputting the hcf AC as u~hcf AC.
For those interested in learning DLC character Whip, Coliflowerz has created a very simple tutorial that explains all of her moves in easy-to-follow detail & instruction! Very good for new Whip players & intermediate players who want to improve!
Whip is a little awkward to combo with, but she feels pretty good once you get it down. Make sure you learn to extend your rolls. Also she has a potentially pretty tricky cancel in hcf xx qcb~hcf; just practice that until you get it consistent. I know you can do it!
