Yep, it's happening. 6 years since the last KoF release.

https://www.youtube....h?v=7dqYwHhiDeY

It's coming in 2016 for PS4, but I expect a PC port to come soon too (KoF XIII had a PC port released in 2013).
Kyo and Iori are confirmed to appear in it. I wonder if this game will be a dream match or the start of a new saga...

I'm waiting for the other trailers and maybe screenshots before building my opinion on it. I just hope it won't turn like KoF Maximum Impact series.

The January 2016 release is a misconception and is actually from another trailer that comes right after the KOF XIV teaser (the original reveal was during Sony's conference at TGS; go to the 58:10 mark in the video).

 

 

I'm leaning towards a late 2016 release judging by how the game looks at this point. It sucks that SNK has to abandon the beautiful sprites from XII and XIII (IIRC they cost too much time and money to make), but I'll wait until we get more videos/screenshots/etc. before I can give any real thoughts.

Will edit the OP now, thanks :)

Indeed, it's sad that they abandoned the sprites. I liked them, but eh, what can we do :( Better be not like Maximum Impact.

2nd Teaser Trailer:



Leona and Chang are confirmed to appear. Also seems that Kyo has the XI moveset instead of the XIII one. Iori seems to have a move from his flameless counterpart from XIII.

This time I didn't feel too impressed. Maybe because it was done lazily.



Also looking better at Chang. Is he wearing a prison suit? I thought he and Choi became good guys at the end of KoF XI :/

Andy joins the roster too.

Also, a demo will be shown at the PlayStation Experience 2015, between December 5 and 6, at San Francisco, in Moscone West, so if any of you are in SF, take some shots, for us fans :)

They still haven't learned from Maximum Impact.

 

What in God's name have they done to Kyo!!??? That doesn't even look like him, let alone a guy in his late 20's who's supposed to be one of the strongest in the roster.

They even screwed up his Esaka theme. Good going, SNK.

 

Gameplay better be second to none to salvage the design's many flaws.

 

 

Also looking better at Chang. Is he wearing a prison suit? I thought he and Choi became good guys at the end of KoF XI  :/

 

Yeah, they're supposed to have been reformed by Kim by now.

Maybe this is a reboot? It would explain why some characters look like teenage dolls, but since Iori is using a flameless moveset and post KoF2002 gear, I don't think this is the case.

Yeah, they screwed Kyo. He was looking good before. I guess it's because of that new director, not sure.
Hmm, they screwed Esaka? Gimme a link, I'm quite curious since I like Esaka.
The gameplay better be not like in MI. I didn't like it at all, to be honest.
About Iori, I seen him doing some of his old moves in the first trailer, and even a bit in the second. I still have to watch the third trailer. I have a pic:

I guess it's either a reboot or a dream match.

To me, it's all different once they got into Playmore's hands...

 

Not only KOF, Metal Slug too.

New trailer! And for some reason, I like this one more than others.

Ralf, Billy, Kula, King and Angel are confirmed to appear.

From the Youtube description:

- A voluminous character roster of "50 fighters"!
In addition to numerous classic / popular returning KOF characters, many new characters involved in the storyline enter the ring!

- KOF's traditional "3-on-3 TEAM BATTLE" game system is back!
Select your favorite 3 fighters from the gorgeous character roster of the game, and fight to victory via KOF's traditional and most praised "3-on-3 TEAM BATTLE" game system!

-A brand new fighting game experience, "PARTY BATTLE" Mode !
Duke it out with as many as six people (three players on each team) in VS Online "Party Battle"! Feel the heat of an authentic fighting game tournament experience via PSN!

- A Brand New KOF Saga
The KOF Series' storyline has been continuing over the "OROCHI", "NESTS" and "ASH" story arcs.
KOF's rich story has NOT finished, and returns in a brand new exciting arc with "KOF XIV"!


What makes me wonder is Angel being brought back. Her last appearance was in KoF 2002 (UM too). Maybe they will add K9999 or Nameless back too?
Also what I REALLY love is Billy having a decent outfit. The XIII one sucked, IMO.

Double post, sorry, but I found some gameplay videos:





From what I seen, Kyo uses his KoF96 moves but with KoF99's specials, while Iori uses a mix between KoF98 and XIII (both flameless and ex versions) moves and specials.

Gameplay looks like in the other KoFs, just 3D.

Not only KOF, Metal Slug too.

 

Quite so.

The Playmore KoF Ash-Saga games have nothing on the original Rugal/Orochi story. The characters all felt their own and you easily identified and remembered them, play & story-wise. I never felt the same since KoF 2003.

 

As for Metal Slug, I never thought they'd outdo Metal Slug 3 (my personal favorite), although I did enjoy 6 & XX, although probably because of Ralf/Clark/Leona.

 

 

 

New trailer! And for some reason, I like this one more than others.

 

Sweet!

This does make the game look better than the other trailers; the gameplay looks more fast-paced and responsive. Hopefully SNK-Playmore can do the same thing Neatherrealms did with MK9 and make a solid 3D fighting game.

 

 

- A Brand New KOF Saga
The KOF Series' storyline has been continuing over the "OROCHI", "NESTS" and "ASH" story arcs.
KOF's rich story has NOT finished, and returns in a brand new exciting arc with "KOF XIV"!

 

Define "rich", SNK.

NESTS was so disappointing in it's final act. Igniz, while cheap/OP enough to be a decent final boss, felt soooo underdeveloped as a character. I didn't feel K' team accomplished anything at all unlike Kyo/Chizuru/Iori did in the Orochi story. KoF2001 as a whole felt rushed (Although I will say Original Zero looked pretty badass compared to 2000 Zero). They had a good premise with KoF'99's kidnapping of Kyo and establishing NESTS as this seedy powerhouse organization, but after seeing Zero get the same treatment Krizalid did, I felt disappointed at how there was very little actual story involved.  Also, they never established why the 99-00 tournaments were underground yet 2001 was a massive festival. In the Rugal half of the Orochi saga it's made clear that it's underground since Rugal is a crime lord organizing the tournament only to test his might and later on enact revenge. While in the second half both tournaments are made into public media events to draw out certain people and amass as much energy as possible.

Same thing for the Ash Crimson/Sacred Treasures storyline...messy.

 

That said, I am hopeful for the new storyline. I just hope it really is a story and not disassembled cutscenes.

 

 

Also what I REALLY love is Billy having a decent outfit. The XIII one sucked, IMO.

 

That was his original Fatal Fury outfit, I like it.

Although tbh I like the other one with the jacket too, and that sweet, sweet soundtrack.

 

 

Gameplay looks like in the other KoFs, just 3D.

 

Yeah...but I really wish they'd make em look either more stylized like in their artworks or go for a pseudo-realistic approach. The current look feels like they're action figures or dolls on several characters that annoys me to no end.

 

 

E: on the topic of soundtracks, I really, really hope Arashi no Saxophone gets included again.

iteration #2 is my absolute favorite KoF track. be it in-game or arranged. This theme alone inspired me as a teen to pick up and play the saxophone.

Talking about outfits... Kula got some changes in her outfit too.

Also bits of Esaka can be heard at the start of the new trailer.

Subtle, yet I still prefer the original outfit. This one seems a bit too restrictive.

Anyways, here's (yet) another teaser trailer. Benimaru, K' and Robert are confirmed to appear.

Edit: Seeing that 5th trailer again...why are they so stiff? Iori in particular. Their stylized movesets were a big plus for me over other fighting games.

Another one, and this one is the best so far. Also new character, "King of Dinosaurs", which reminds me a lot of Tizoc/Griffon. I dig how Maxima looks now. Same for Terry and Clark. Also Ralf.

Man, I wish they could go smooth without that stopping hit effect...

 

Also, the art style is such a boner-killer. They should've gone to the classic artist' style back in the 94-99. Forgot what's the name.

 

Imagine this style - in 3D...

Yeah. Even the art from 96/97 - 2000 was looking good. Sadly in 2001 a lot of things changed. Atleast some outfits look good.

I hope the soundtrack won't be ruined.

The roster so far. What's interesting is where Angel and KoD are. They are in the same team, like that leaked roster showed (except that there was Tizoc instead of KoD but they are very similar anyways).

I wonder why Eiji doesn't team up with Nakoruru alongside with Haoumaru as alternate universe team.

 

Edit: oh wait. Eiji is from Art of Fighting, not Samurai Showdown.
