Last month, Sony revealed a first look at King of Fighters XIV during their presentation at Tokyo Game show. While it came as a surprise that SNK Playmore was readying a follow-up to 2010’s King of Fighters XIII, the biggest shock was likely the title’s moving away from sprites to 3D models.
The footage shown in the teaser was incredibly brief, but players will be able to learn more about King of Fighters XIV and even get their hands on a playable demo at PlayStation Experience. Between this and Capcom Cup’s Street Fighter competition, the convention is quickly turning out to be a rather enticing visit for fighting game fans.
And, as the rather unpolished look of the trailer gave many members of the community pause, this could be just the thing King of Fighters XIV needs to establish a more promising foothold in the genre before its release on PlayStation 4 next year.
PlayStation Experience is scheduled for December 5-6 in San Francisco, California. More details can be found here.
