New King of Fighters XIV Gameplay Showcases Team South Town

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

Featured above, the new trailer focuses on Team South Town, who are made up of the infamous Geese Howard, Billy Kane, and the newcomer Hein.

Here’s a breakdown of each character, via Atlus:

  • Geese Howard: The notorious crime lord from South Town who reminds me of a villain from a popular 1980s karate kids movie. He utilizes the Hakkyokuseiken style, and mercilessly brutalizes unlucky opponents with a mix of electric strikes and throws. Geese is big, bad, and ready to prove that he’s the strongest fighter on the planet by crushing the competition in the tournament.
  • Billy Kane: The bandana wearing Billy wields a tri-section staff which he uses to teach opponents all about his Bojutsu mastery and affinity for fire.
  • Hein: Hein is ready to fight with his chess inspired fighting style called “Gambit.” When he’s not busy adjusting his glasses and fixing his tie, Hein puts his lanky limbs to deadly use and also appears to control some sort of dark-red energy in combat.

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.

    Geese looks as terrifying as ever in this game. They’ve really managed to showcase these characters well. Just hope they keep refining these character models.

    I had no idea a character from Black Butler was in this game.

    His inclusion in the game was PREDICTABLE.

    I really like how Hein plays. I could possibly main him.

    Geese comes off as a meter eater in this trailer but I guess that might apply to almost everyone else
