New King of Fighters XIV Trailer Introduces Team Japan, SteelBook Bonus Confirmed

SNK Playmore and Atlus have revealed a new trailer for The King of Fighters XIV.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces “Team Japan,” which is made up of the following combatants:

  • Kyo Kusanagi – Kyo Kusanagi is the legitimate heir of the ancestral arts of the Kusanagi clan. Despite his seemingly rude and arrogant demenanor, he has innate gifts for fighting, and can reduce any of his opponents into ashes via his pyrotechnic skills. Iori Yagami is his “eternal enemy”.
  • Benimaru Nikaido – Born of American and Japanese parents, Benimaru is a young son of a multi-millionaire family. This genius fighter specializes in shooting and electricity-based techniques. Benimaru is also Kyo’s best friend and friendly rival.
  • Goro Daimon – Former gold medalist in judo at the Olympic Games, Goro decided one day to improve his discipline by adding new techniques such as “tremendous earthquakes”. He later joined Kyo and Benimaru to participate in the KOF Tournament. Goro always seems to have a very serious expression, but he is a hard-worker.

The game’s North American publisher, Atlus, also confirmed a sweet bonus for anyone pre-ordering or nabbing a launch copy of the game:

the king of fighters xiv 05-15-16-1

Alongside the special SteelBook case is the Classic Kyo costume DLC that will be made free to all players in the week after launch.

The King of Fighters XIV is launching for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 23rd and in Japan on August 25th.

    Can we compare this trailer footage with the reveal trailer? I think they polished up the models and textures.
