SNK’s The King of Fighters XIV has just received a new update on PlayStation 4. The update seems to be a relatively benign one, focused mostly on squashing a few stray bugs for both the game system and the characters. However, it also brings with it a few balance changes for the cast.

A number of the changes revolve mostly around things that could be considered bugs: these include certain backdashes having invulnerability against low attacks, and some overhead attacks not connecting in certain situations. There are some notable balance fixes, though, including toning down some of Sylvie’s damage off her “Paula Experiment,” and a number of adjustments for DLC characters Whip, Vanessa, and Rock Howard.

These aren’t all the things that have been changed. For the specifics of these and other changes, check out the official patch notes here.
