New King of Fighters XIV Trailer Introduces Team Psycho Soldier

SNK Playmore has shared a new gameplay trailer for The King of Fighters XIV.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces Team Psycho Soldier, who are made up of: Athena Asamiya, Chin Gentsai, and Sie Kensou.

Here’s a brief synopsis for each character, via Atlus:

  • Athena Asamiya: A cheerful and friendly high school girl who is adored worldwide for being a famous pop star. She has a strong sense of justice and always puts on a worthy show for her fans on stage and in the ring. Athena utilizes a variety of psionic abilities and will be a terror to any opponent in The King of Fighters XIV tournament.
  • Sie Kensou: A goofy Kung Fu kid with a penchant for dragons. He fights with a hybrid Kung Fu and psychic style, and has a lot of potential to become an unstoppable fighter. Oh, he’s also in love with Athena and hopes to impress her one day with his fighting ability. That’s as good as any reason to fight right?
  • Chin Gentsai: The drunken master. Chin is a very ancient fighter who lulls his opponents to sleep with his drunken antics before exploiting their carelessness. He is both master and mentor to the two younger members of Team Psycho Soldier, and wants them to test their psychic abilities in the tournament.

The King of Fighters XIV is launching for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 23rd, in Japan on August 25th, and in Europe on August 26th.

    At least they got rid of Athena’s over-animized look she had.

    I was expecting someone like M Bison to lead this team and instead it’s some drunk old geezer.

    I was wondering when Kensou would show up. Wouldn’t want to omit the guy that has to be fuckbuddies with Mai so he can practice and get the self-confidence he needs confess his feelings to Athena.

    Even if they kept their “one year per game” progression, she’d be out from university, indeed.
    Was 16 back in 94.
