SNK has shared the fifth episode for The King of Fighters: Destiny, their CG animated series based on its The King of Fighters franchise.
Featured above, the new episode “Side Story: Geese Howard” continues the story, albeit from the perspective of a young Geese Howard. It’s also worth pointing out this episode drops the CG style of the previous episode (considering it’s a side story and not a full episode).
Here’s a rundown on the episode, via SNK:
When Geese was young, he was driven out from Stroheim Castle since his mother was not the legal wife of his father. After wandering on his own, he becomes a disciple of Tung. During his time there he harbors hatred for another disciple, Jeff, over who will inherit Tung’s role and secrets.
In related news, SNK confirmed they’re working on “lots of new fighting games,” but they haven’t confirmed development platforms and such. You can read more about that here.
The King of Fighters XIV is currently available for PC and PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review for The King of Fighters XIV here (we highly recommend it!).
