I’d like to introduce Saturday Shodown a Biweekly Tournament held on Fightcade for Samurai Shodown V special hosted by the Samurai Shodown Discord. The tournament welcomes players of all skill level to join in. Players from North America, South America and Europe are allowed to join (Sorry Asia players). Some of our tournaments have special rules such as character lock or 3v3 KOF style tournaments, the rules for the tournaments will usually be on challonge page of the tournament. We are also thinking about the possibility of doing other Samurai Shodown games that are on fightcade. Most of the discussion for the tournaments will be done on our discord and we have a bot that sets reminders on when the next tournament happens. We usually stream it on twitch too
We will be posting tournament results and Youtube VOD on DreamCancel. Feel free to join the discord and ask questions about the game and its mechanics.
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 🙏
Dream Cancel will like to express our deepest condolences to the recent passing of an EXTREMELY important KOF/SNK community member, Ars Magna aka ImbuedGold. He frequently shared many great fighting game videos on his youtube channel, especially those of the SNK brand.
For myself, his channel was one of the first KOF/SNK YouTube channels that I subscribed to years ago when I first started playing King of Fighters. I frequently checked his channel for obscure high level gameplay videos that I had trouble finding anywhere else on YouTube.
Below are tweets from the SNK/KOF community giving their condolences:
Famitsu has reported that King of Fighters 98, Waku Waku 7, Metal Slug 3, World Heroes Perfect, and Shock Troopers will appear on the Nintendo Switch system soon! The Nintendo Switch will be released in March!
Do you think more SNK Neo-Geo titles will appear on the Nintendo Switch?
SNK recently have been doing an excellent jobs addressing and taking care of bugs and glitches that are found in the patches of King of Fighters XIV. Recently, they took to facebook to provide more details on the bugs found in the latest update of version 1.10:
【IMPORTANT NOTICE】Related to KOF XIV’s latest ver.1.10 patch
We have confirmed the following issues in the latest patch to KOF XIV:
1. The game disconnects when entering ONLINE Mode after changing “Icons” or “Titles” in “MY PROFILE”
* Moreover, as it affects your Match Completion rate and penalties for disconnecting from a match, we recommend that you do not change these settings on the “MY PROFILE” screen until this bug has been fixed.
2. “Search”, “Entry”, and room creation online features may not work fully at this time.
3. There are some display issues with the trial completion results.
4. Certain users may not be able to acquire new “Titles” online.
5. Certain character moves have different properties than in the latest balance patch. (details are available below).
6. There are also issues with how some visual effects and other aspects are displayed.
A new patch fixing the issues mentioned above is currently under development. We will inform everyone via an announcement regarding the release date of this new patch.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your understanding and patience.
Also, there are unintended character changes found in the update, which will be reverted in a patch:
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!
This tournament will be the final KOF World Championship qualifier! This tournament will be one month before the ‘4 Kings Tournament’ that will be held February 18th, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan, leading up to the grand final that will be held in March in Beijing, China: https://www.snk-corp.co.jp/us/press/2016/120901/
