Respond with your favorite KOF image and why I should give you this key
Somebody just leaked KOF XIV's roster. I have no fucking face at what I'm reading:
>Stats: 16 teams of three, one mid boss and one final boss
>China Team: (?), Tung Fu Rue, (?)
>Japan Team: Kyo Kusanagi, Benimaru Nikaido, Goro Daimon
>Fatal Fury Team: Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi
>Art of Fighting Team: Ryo Sakazaki, Robert Garcia, Yuri Sakazaki
>K' Team: K', Maximia, Kula Diamond
>Kim Team: Kim Kaphwan, (His Master), (His Wife)
>Criminal Team: Prisoner Chang Koehan, Prisoner Choi Bounge, (Newcomer Prisoner)
>Women's Team: Mai Shirauni, King, Alice**
>Ikari Team: Ralf Jones, Clark Still, Leona Heidern

>- All characters in parentheses are unknown. Some character's archetypes are known.
>*A possible carry over from SNK Playmore's new owners.
>** Making their first KOF Debut. Some are carryovers from pachinko machines.
>>South America Team: (Brazilian Ninja), (Handicapped Boxer),
really hope this game has a Singles mode, I'm not really interested in learning 3 characters
>Slutty R63'd Terry Bogard
>Chang & Choi being criminals again
>Chinese bootleg knock-off characters
It might, but tournaments will still use 3v3 mode. Also taking bets that the "Handicapped Boxer" is missing a limb.
If someone likes KoF, then they probably already have XIII already, don't they?
That's the hope among fans right now, because the graphics are almost as bad as the MI games desu.
I'm expecting half of the roster to be DLC.
SNKP is dead & buried. The Chinese own it now.
>wants to play KOF
>doesnt want to learn at least 3 characters
>TFW The Billionare is based on Vladimir Putin and looks like Pic Related
This still looks better than most Chinese games.
GIVE ME THE FUCKING KEY YOU COCK SUCKER MOTHERFUCKER
Shame that the only KOF where you can see her ass meanwhile she does the "Shoryuken" is in '96, after that the skirt doesn't lift like that.
So I can give it to a friend and we can then play together.
No Fu'un characters again?! May I have your key please?
I want the key but I don't want to post my id
I've been a KOF Fan for as long as I can remember (My local arcade was owned by Mexicans and that was what they played, go figure) and played the bejeesus out of '96 (First game) '98, 2000 & 2k2. Unfortunately, I'm broke as fuck between supporting a house, my sickly mother and my dead-beat dad, so I haven't had a chance to play KOF XIII: Steam Edition...
4chan's glitching out on me and won't post my favorite image though.
That's why I wrote "Shoryuken" you... you...
>supporting a house, my sickly mother and my dead-beat dad
I've been playing things to be ashamed of lately and I don't want to get bullied
I'm amazed that a guy like Falcoon could create such lovely girls.
Indeed, she has nice tits, gut, and ass, shame that she'll kill you if you want to touch her privates.
I posit that 2000 Mai was best Mai.
The moveset could've been better though and I can't really see here translating to a 2-2.5D game because of it.
Duke (The guy in the webm) on the other hand would be a fucking blast to play in a "Traditional" KOF IMO.
Alien? Beastman? Orochi? Or something completely different?
CAPCOM Mai isn't bad but that version doesn't have enough lewd sprites like with SNK.
>but is the gameplay also good compared to other fighting games?
It was considered the only reigning king along with Capcom in the nineties, people went ballistic when a crossover happened.
I think MI had some nice characters, Duke, Nagase, Chae Lim, Hanzo and Hyena were great imo.
No, Tecent has more money than SNK Playmore ever had.
I don't believe a company that went out of the country's border to buy a dying company would give the smallest budget possible for the first project under new management.
She was plenty lewd.
actually I kinda forgot about that. It's a shame Capcom didn't make their own version of that as well as her derobing.
what the fuck
if that's how busty Leona is then what are the actual titty monster characters going to look like?
>50 characters initial roster
That's dumb and you should feel dumb for believing it. It'd be an absolute nightmare to balance and this game is entirely made up of new assets so they have nothing to recycle into this game.
Besides, didn't the director for this game say that he wanted to take KOF back to the basics or something in an interview?
That alternate world team is pretty wild
I like how in the left bottom image looks like she's not wearing panties.
Shit, Tetsuo might never come back but what about Kaneda?
>There probably won't ever be another Queen's Blade crossover with more characters.
Not even giant companies dared to keep making DLC for one fighter till it reached 50 Characters. That's no cost effective and it would force the publisher to keep promoting the same game for years to come, that's financial suicide, realeasing a new entry would be way more doable.
But have you ever been so far as decided to do more like?
I would say This. but whose the DLC teams?
too many newcomers sprinkled about the roster why that much work making new characters and leave them all out when the game ships.
>It'd be an absolute nightmare to balance and this game is entirely made up of new assets
KOF XIII was rendered in 3d and SNK drew the sprites over the 3d wireframes, that's why the animation in XIV syncs up well with the old games
>No New Face Team
Welp, there goes my team anchor from KOF '98.
Fucking disgusting, there was a time Chris wasn't Shota bait.
some of this is just weird.
also why not just bring back chae lim?
I'm surprised Iroha hasn't been in a real KOF game yet. Team her up with Mai and Shiki/Nakoruru and you've got a Kunoichi Team.
Japan Team: Kyo Kusanagi, Benimaru Nikaido, Goro Daimon
Fatal Fury Team: Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi
Art of Fighting Team: Ryo Sakazaki, Marco Rodriguez, Mr. Karate
K' Team: K', Maximia, Kula Diamond
Ikari Team: Ralf Jones, Clark Still, Heidern
Women's Team: Mai Shirauni, King, Leona Heidern
Psycho Soldier Team: Athena Asamiya, Sie Kensou, Chin Gentsai
Kim Team: Kim Kaphwan, Chang Koehan, Choi Bounge
Robert's Team: Robert Garcia, Yuri Sakazaki, Karman Cole
Boss Team: , White, G-Mantle
They're all pretty good in 98UM:FE though...
>mexican team: Ramon, tizoc, Angel
At first, I wanted to know what kind of fruity-ass character would be named that, but now that I think of it, they probably meant Aino Heart from Arcana Heart.
Not entirely impossible, since some of SNK's devs worked on Arcana Heart.
I heard this series has some pretty nice girls. But which is the best one? A picture to match would be nice too.
>still no usa team
just one more time, that's all i ask
They'll just end up getting bought by someone else.
>Capcom merges the SNK and Street Fighter settings and out of the fucking blue Rugal is the end boss of a Street Fighter game that had no SNK characters in it.
Angel, of course.
The best girl is blue Mary, fun fact her early models in fatal fury 3 were based off of Android 18
She has good jiggle sprite work and she does decent grab link damage and can use counters. Think of her as a projectile less geese that has more maneuverability.
m8 KoF97 is still the most played fighting game in the world by a huge margin and they are finally trying to pander to that chinese audience instead of letting them play 97 forever
It's the opposite, they got bought by a huge company that wants to push the shit out of it in china
Don't you mean Vanessa?
kof has a shitload of top tier girls.
my favorite is shermie.
Obviously safe on that one.
Okay so he's still there that's good, now to the important one to make this perfect is...
God dammit. She's never coming back is she. Hopefully the game will still be good, but damn did I ever want to get my go to team back for this game. Perhaps DLC maybe who knows.
>KoF97 is still the most played fighting game in the world by a huge margin
Where the fuck are you from to think this?
>KoF97 tournament in China for this year
>500k peak viewers
>Evo's highest viewers ever
The biggest fighting game tournament in the world is KoF exclusive and it also has KoF97 as the most popular game
Probably going to spout some shit like "KOF '97 had the largest number of cartridges ever made for the MVS system and all of them shipped".
Stroud was a boring design with a great moveset.
This is a game overseen by people who think KOF '97 is the pinnacle of the franchise; I'm shocked K' & Friends made it onto the roster.
Rugal, Vice, Mature
Kyo, Benimaru, Goro
Iori, Eiji, Billy
>Fatal Fury Team
Terry Andy Joe
>Art of Fighting Team
Kyo, Marco, Takuma
>Women's Fighters team
King, Mai, Kasumi
K', Maxima, Whip
Ralf, Clark, Leona
Athena, Sie, Bao
>KOF EX Team
Moe, Miu, Jun
Krizalid, Angel, Kula
this is kinda hard to pick out because the old standards you HAVE to have for KOF is like 8 teams deep, I didn't get to the New Faces or Those From the Past.
It's common knowledge among KoF players who have actually ever been to Asia for KoF, the west doesn't know because 99% of western players don't even know where the western KoF scenes/players are, let alone Asia
Most people argue between kof98 or 2002 is better, but 97 is easily the most played solely due to china. It's popular there in a similar way to 2002 in south america.
Actually liked Heavy D, shame he's not in more games other then just cameo's usually. If Heavy D actually came back for 14 I'd be fine with that. He should return at some point.
>dat doujin with him
that's pretty cool!
But from the tournament description, it sounds like it couldn't have been a very large tournament in terms of entrants. I wonder if similar tournaments attract similar numbers of viewers regularly, or if it was a china-meme? Sort of like Bob Ross or Twitch Plays Pokemon, I mean. maybe the stream went viral on chinese-reddit or whatever the fuck they have. Because half a million is fucking crazy if it's a regular thing for them.
KoF has always been alive, everywhere except North America has plenty top KoF players. It's a dedicated community and most people in it have been playing KoF for a long time.
Competitive fighting games do not need moba numbers to be alive. Most people who 'play' kof are terrible and just want to play online against other shitters, which is hardly even playing the series at all. Several KoF 'scenes' got to world class level with literally 2 or 3 players who met once a week, and those players travel and keep the scene at a high level of play and tournament numbers up. The last major KoF tournament I went to (stunfest) had KoF13 hit its player cap very quickly. 'It's dead there's no point rip kof' shit is just an excuse for people who would never play them anyway.
>Gave Kyo black hair
>New hero team is chinese
>deliberately adding characters recognisable to KoF97 players
>Explicitly saying in press releases they are trying to focus on china
>Closing their patchinko division to focus on game development
>Elizabeth was tits McDomanix fetish
I loved how her crotch is very notable with those pants ( Jodhpur I think ), sadly you can't see her butt because that "skirt" is covering it.
Only if you're a shareholder
From the gamer's perspective they're irrelevant casuals who do nothing but spout retarded shit about character balance online or cry about bad netcode because they don't want to leave their basement
It has some bullshit but no 98 vanilla is probably the most solid KoF game
It's' not really busted in terms of combos it's busted in terms of raw normal damage on certain characters and a metagame with 6(7 if Iori is being played allowing for Mai counterpick) viable characters
well I know it's popular in china, but 500,000 is a large number and I find it hard to believe that a podunk tournament regularly attracts that kind of viewership. If you have more information to prove me wrong I'd be interested to see it, I'm just honestly surprised I've gone my entire life without knowing that the biggest fighting game scene in the world was KoF 97 in China.
You do know China lifted the Console ban and Sony dived in like a crazy motherfucker, right?
Of course you don't know, because you're just a filthy uniformed fanboy that isn't happy the Plataform you love isn't getting XIV, yet.
No thanks, the other one is great tho.
>Shermie shows her eyes
>they aren't the rumored killer sadistic eyes at all
>they are actually pretty with a hint of sadness
Are you delusional? I'm glad it's on PS4 and I know china lifted the bad, I'm only mad that the game looks like absolute shit and was wondering how things have to be this way.
Fuck you dumbass, I was just legitimately interested not trolling you or something.
The 3D is an unfortunate necessity as those sprites were ridiculously time consuming, expensive and required very skilled staff.
There is a reason the KoFXIII console release had new characters that were exclusively either headswaps or minor alterations of existing characters, with the sole exception of billy who was originally worked on for KoF12
It's quite an inbalanced game at high level, it's something Xhaohai said once
Off the top of my head it will be something like
Iori, Daimon, Chris, O.Chris, O.Yashiro, Chizuru and Mai if Iori is there because she fucks him up and he is a huge problem character otherwise
That's probably not exactly right but it'll be something like that. Kyo has fallen from grace quite massively and even the upper tier characters like Robert/Benimaru etc really struggle to compete with the top 6 at high level
Keep in mind though I'm basing that off of one player's opinion and I know for a fact other good KoF98 players disagree, but they're not as good as he is
Are you waifufagging so hard you lost your mind? All of the New Faces are batshit insane and only care for themselves, their blood doesn't turn them into wrecks like Orochi Iori and Orochi Leona because they are already 100% evil.
At least love Shermie for who she is.
But where did the staff from XIII go? It seem crazy to me that they though this was okay to present.
Especially when the guy directing the game isn't a shitter at all, it's a SNK vet
Guys what if the Chinese and Hispanics actually buy KOF XIV and it outsells SFV...500,000 spectators is fucking crazy
Personally I hate tryhards when I like chill games where you can shit talk on chat and spout random shit, usually when a cheesemonger comes along they usually provided no input on the match. They usally stay silent until they win. If I want that shit is play single player on hardest difficulty.
>recognizable to KoF97 players
>no NFT, the one set of actual new characters in 97 that aren't just characters from another game like Mary/Billy/Ryuji
How did they screw this up?
I imagine they lost most of them in the long period following KoF13, though I have no way of knowing. I doubt they had skilled modellers and have had to hire recently, which ties in with the fact that they were advertising for them not even a year ago. It's likely who they have taken on aren't that experienced, or perhaps the job was rushed.
Nah, Shermie is actually very cute and waifu material. Evil is in the eye of the beholder. Stay mad edgelord tumblrite.
it doesn't look like a PS2 game, more like an early PS3 game. the models could be better but they probably planning to do custom outfits and have a bunch of characters. whats really bad is how empty stages look
>no Blue Mary
confirmed for shit
SHE. REVELS, IN, BLOOD.
Didn't know Shermie fags tried to deflect this hard.
As opposed to what? A PC?
With few exceptions, Asian devs are still getting their feet wet with this mystical concept of high-test gaming PCs being for anything other than visual novels. Of course, they're going to go for a console release first, especially since online gaming has largely killed their usual stomping ground of the arcade dead. A PC release, if any, is going to be a straight port to squeeze more money out late in the game's life cycle.
take the bad with the good anon.
it's the only way.
You have to forgive him after the orochi saga all of the characters of this series started to get flanderdised, it got so bad in spinoffs that she used a wish to bring back a hamster instead of orochi. Because lol ditz
Nope, she isn't bathing in blood at all as you say, not even in that fanfic of KOF: Kyo or the drama tracks. At best she just comes off as a Sailor Moon villain using her alluring nature to suck energy off of people for the Orochi negaverse. But her sprites show she is pretty happy go lucky and sociable.
Stay mad, tumblrite edgelord and go back to enjoying Donte may Cry.
Because I want play XIII while crying over how shit XIV will be.
>snk fags actually think this will be decent
I commend your loyalty but it will be ass and you will play it for a month then give up, go to street fighter 5 and complain that it is ass but will still play it more than this shit.
That's probably the case, poor soul.
Damn, never seen a Shermie fan so brainwashed before.
You can pursue all the headcanon you can muster, the Orochi versions fought as bosses are stated to be the real personalities of the New Faces Team.
that nature of fighting games that aren't Street Fighter is they get an active online for a month when its released then its dead. Then EVO is around the corner starts getting a somewhat active online, then goes away again
Sorry, I only get off to hardcore vanilla and femdom
You don't like Shermie if you can't accept who she is.
You don't like Shermie if you can't accept that there's more to her than you think you know.
I need it because I want to git gud
because large breasted fit qt
I don't want to be banned, not right now at least
There is. She likes designing clothes (All 3 of The New Faces Team's clothes were all done by her), has a pet hamster, probably is trolling on /fa/ right now (She's into computers) and wants to serve her master, which happens to be an 8-headed Snake God that wants to destroy humanity to save the earth from itself.
Then why does she hate celery and high school baseball, and like alive things like her hamster, which instead she could just crush under her boots when nobody's looking which she clearly has many opportunities to do in her private life? Why would she bother with lame needless superlatives that don't matter to Orochi's cause? Checkmate, atheist.
She is clearly a walking self contradiction.
>I am going to have to play kof on fightcade for another 5 years with hues and mexicans
just end this suffering
The New Faces aren't evil. They just have Orochi's blood running through them.
They're not like the Goenitz.
Otherwise there'd be no reason for them to undergo the change.
Goenitz has no need to change to use his powers.
Yashiro, Shermie and Chris without being taken over, have no access to their Orochi powers.
I'm gonna miss Ash.
She's a Fit, Tan, Huge-Breasted wrestling fan
that could kill you in over 700 ways just with her bare hands.Because NESTS Assassin lol.Angel was also her creators literal waifu, right down to her VA.
Anon I already fapped twice today, don't do this to me
The very fact that her endgame is summoning a god that she knows would cause great suffering to an entire species of sentient beings automatically makes her evil in the grand scheme of things. She abides by some rules and isn't a complete muderhobo this would make her neutral. She's literally all for human genocide.
this game looks like shit, it looks hardly better than Injustice on fucking mobile, I thought the kof community would bitch loud enough that they would do something about it but I guess they are just lubing up instead.
at least we get best girl
>The New Faces aren't evil.
>They just have Orochi's blood running through them.
That's Leona and Iori, The New Faces were born and raised with Orochi's ideals as their own
>Otherwise there'd be no reason for them to undergo the change.
They didn't change, they showed their true selves.
>Goenitz has no need to change to use his powers.
Again no change, also Chris, Shermie and Yashiro can use their powers just fine before going all out.
>Yashiro, Shermie and Chris without being taken over, have no access to their Orochi powers.
So their Lightning, Flames and Earth are just smoke and mirror tricks before going all out?
Holy shit, what's wrong with New Face fans in this thread, the reason the New Faces even stepped in was due Goenitz' failure, they are his equals, Higher Priests like him, they were a quartet.
How could Duff Man be from Argentina?
>thinking human genocide is evil if it's to clean out corruption
That list doesn't show cup sizes though...
B-but, excluding the graphics, the game looks cool.
>b-but it doesn't matter if tit playss solid!
People don't realize with graphics this bad it means the game is being made with minimal care and on the cheap. If they can't even get decent graphics 9which doesnt even mean super jawdropping stuff, just serviceable) they are not going to bother with the game mechanics.
This is just going to be one of the many trash games in the kof line and they will use it as a beta for the next one.
Every girl would appear to have melons if they hunched like quasimodo, anon.
SNK never tried to fool you, Mai's official measurements were public knowledge for years, only those who ignored ever thought she had the biggest, or at least top 3, rack in the series.
Man, they screw the faceplant sprite, was better in old KOF.
Now you're the one that's delusional
Because I want to play with the brazilian ninja and the handicapped boxer.
OK, here's the deal:
Before the KOF Tournaments started, Chris, Yashiro & Shermie lived normal lives as relatively normal people, but at some point all three of them begin to be guided subconsciously by Orochi to meet up with one another and do whatever it took to break the seal open and resurrect him. This is because they're all "Heavenly Kings of the Orochi" like Goenitz, but they never know of what their "True" purpose in life really is; They just get together, become friends and decide to start a J-Rock band.
When Goenitz dies, the three of them decide to get into fighting and during the '97 tournament, Orochi "Awakens" the three of them and pretty much destroys all of their memories of their past lives while keeping certain personality traits intact.
Agreed. I hate how XIII's sprite of pic related removed the butt jiggle.
The fuck are you gonna do about it old man?
South American team might as well just have been Brazil Team
i'm not really that into the series but i'm kind of disappointed the teams aren't more focused on being reps from all over the world like other fighting games
Oh yeah, I read that doujin. Good times.
You never know, Sony might fund it to get dat sweet China money and move PS4s like with SFV.
And don't forget many of her moves reference The Rock. Man, I really hope she comes back, even if it's on this new shitty looking game
Man, I love underwear that covers big part of the crotch and gut.
>hear so much from KOF fags about how KOF has deeper and better stories and characters than SF
>Akuma: Someone who has trained to become the ultimate warrior and fights to the death but only against other warriors and has actually saved some people and even refused to kill some people like Gen if they are already ill, acts as a kind of foil to Ryu to try and channel Ryu's inner unbridled warrior nature
>Iori: LMAO I HATE FIGHTING BUT DO IT ANYWAY SO MUCH PAIN I HATE KYO GRAAAAAAR
Gotta leave now, have fun during the rest of the thread guys, see ya
in three days.
Ah, French-Cut/High-leg panties... You just don't see them anymore in fiction. (Or IRL, but who cares about that?)
k' can get k'ucked
what is that edgelord gonna do about it
Your contribution is welcomed Anon. See you around.
im kind of shit at fighting games and it's late which doesn't make me much better but sure
Being in danger of dying at a young age isn't original, not even to SNK
not into mature much but man do i love vice
she has a huge lower body in general.
Damn, her underwear must be XXL.
The leak actually says "Kim's Master's wife", not Kim's wife
The leak probably isn't true though, it's interesting but I find it too hard to believe that we're getting 50 characters
She loses out to K' in that game as well... Which isn't saying much, because he's fucking god-tier in that game.
he doesn't have that move anymore
>black leather outfit
>fingerless glove on one hand red glove on the other
>aloof amnesiac clone of the main character
i love him too but he's an edgelord nigga. his fighting style is "pure violence" and has moves named after crows and shit. at the very least he's an edgelord done right because he's actually cool as fuck.
Geese was fucking ass in that game. MI:RA version was decent, but still blegh compared to his Fatal Fury self.
Don't you mean "Evil Andy"? Because the only thing that screamed "Geese" about his younger version was the voice and the fact he's got a Deadly Rave.
isn't it lovely?
she probably can't fit into these shorts anymore
K' (and Kula and Maxima) are too sci-fi, they're cool and all but they look out-of-place next to guys like Terry or Takuma
They should've gotten an outfit change after their Saga ended
I bet that she must pay more money for special underwear since her lower body is huge.
>him and his psycho sister were prominent in story of XIII
t-thanks cut content
Him and Rock need to be reintroduced.
The thing about K is that other characters make fun of him. Maxima knows he's a lazy asshole and tries to act cool.
