Let's Get Ready to Rumble Because THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV Demo Hits on July 19!
Plus, Watch the New Story Trailer and See the Eccentric Billionaire/Man-Mountain AntonovThrow it Down!
 
If you've been burning on the inside for some intense 3v3 fighting game action, your wait is about to get a little more bearable. That's because THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV demo will be available on the PlayStation Store worldwide on July 19 for the Americas/Europe and July 20 for Asia! Players will finally be able to slake their burning KOF thirst by test driving seven characters (Kyo Kusanagi, Mai Shiranui, Iori Yagami, Sylvie Paula Paula, King of Dinosaurs, Shun'ei, and Nelson) before the game launches. While the demo won't have online functionality, local versus mode will be available. Oh, and the demo will also come with a free dynamic PS4 theme! With series first 3D graphics, updated gameplay such as a complete overhaul to Combos and MAX Mode, and more, the demo will show just how much SNK has evolved the nearly 22 year old franchise. 
 
And to get you EVEN MORE HYPED for KOF XIV, we've gone ahead and released a spanking new story trailer that'll give you a little insight to what's at stake during the tournament. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! We have yet another trailer that gives a first look at Antonov, the villainous eccentric billionaire/man-mountain who bought the rights to the King of Fighters brand in order to host a new tournament. The self proclaimed "One True King of Fighters" has an array of devastating strikes and bone-crunching grappling that will make him a tough opponent to face. I mean, anyone who sports glorious mutton chops and wears a championship belt during a fight must be near unbeatable right?
 
We've got the trailers and some new screenshots for your viewing and downloading pleasure below!
