Rumor: Rock Howard Leaked for The King of Fighters XIV

The latest character to be added to The King of Fighters XIV may have just been leaked.

An image circulated on various social media websites, supposedly originating from a professional-level player in the fighting game community.

Here’s a shot of the image, via Facebook group Orochinagi:

The above image shows Rock Howard in the game’s player select screen. Due to the nature of this rumor, we’re taking a more skeptical stance here – however we’re definitely hoping to see him added to the game!

It didn’t take long for SNK Corporation Game Division Deputy General Manager Yasuyuki Oda to post a curious status update, simply expressing that he was “feeling pissed off.” I wonder why.

SNK previously confirmed a host of post-launch DLC characters, including: Whip, Vanessa, and Ryuji Yamazaki. Rock would be a natural addition to the game.

The King of Fighters XIV is currently available for PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review for The King of Fighters XIV here (we highly recommend it!).
