SNK has been pushing its upcoming fighter, the King of Fighters XIV, quite hard these past few months. As part of that effort, the game will be making its television debut this weekend.

The King of Fighters XIV is set to be featured on the July 2 episode of E-Sports MAX. The show, which focuses on competitive video games, will be showcasing the game with the help of KoF player Dune, who will be there to explain the fundamental gameplay and strategy behind the game as they go over some matches and replays.

This move represents possibly the first time that not just a KoF game, but an SNK fighting game has been on Japanese television since the late nineties, and seems to show SNK’s dedication to promoting their upcoming title.

E-Sports MAX airs on Saturdays on the Tokyo MX network.
