    Hi, please bring King of Fighters XIII to Vita. I know it’s on PS Now, but streaming is terrible, especially for fighting games.

  • TruePSIVWiiUFan

    Is this exclusive to Playstation 4 and/or PC…? Or will it come to other platforms other than those two that I just mentioned now…?

    • Could you stream play your booth so I can try Leona. That just seems so unfair right now.

      Though really super excited for this game.

    • Sorry did not mean to do that as a reply. Hit that by accident on my phone.

    • Think it’s confirmed ps4 exclusive

  • Could you stream play your booth so I can try Leona. That just seems so unfair right now.
    Though really super excited for this game.

  • Apollyon_Vice

    I know people are giving this game the business.
    I’m just glad this series didn’t experience “pachinko machine death!”
    I’ll be keeping an eye out on this title for sure.
    It already has shown Kula and Leona.
    Just needs Dou Lon.

  • Wow I can’t wait! I hope they bring more new neo-geo fighting games to PS4.

  • Angel-sama? 10/10

  • Alucard-XII

    So glad about the Last Blade 2 announcement. Please port more NeoGeo / SNK games to PS4. Samurai Shodown 2 and Mark of the Wolves please.

    Regarding KOFXIV, I think the animations look mostly good, but the 3D models and (especially) backgrounds still need a lot of work.

  • Hope SNK brings KOFXIV to PS Vita too… someday… SOON after the console releases.

    Glad Last Blade 2 is coming to Vita, hope the other games that were on the poll earlier this year comes soon after.

    SFV looks ok to me, was originally going to get a PS4 mainly for SFV. But its just meh to me now, KOFXIV on the other hand is looking more promising. I am no longer in a rush to get a PS4, I’ll just wait when KOFXIV drops.

    5 Stars***** SNK!!! keep’em coming!!!

  • As a longtime and big KoF fan I can’t wait to see this game finished…I love the 2D fightin of KoF but I had tons of fun with both Maximun Impact on PS2.With that said….50 fighters?…damn thats how you do it,I guess I can be relieved cuz with this amount of fighters ma favs are sure to be there,already see Iori,Kyo and Kula so its going into the right path…and I know this is work in progress but you guys really need to work on Kyo’s model…it looks terrible.

    Anyway you guys at SNK got ma support,love you guys.

    BTW I hope y’all at SNK are working on something special for Metal Slug…it’ll turn 20 years in 2016…we need a new one.

    I’m pumped for this. Always been a KOF fan, and I really like the looks of this one! I know it’s – let’s be honest – not the best looking current gen fighting game out there, but something about is clean and “Japanese” in a way that reminds me of how exciting stuff like Bloody Roar, Virtua Fighter 3 or Dead or Alive 2 were back in the day. Even if the tech isn’t going to stand up to Mortal Kombat X or whatever, everything about it aesthetically looks awesome! It’s been too long since KOFXIII, guys (though THANK YOU for not attempting to drown consumers in umpteen revisions and reissues like Capcom’s 8-year-long Street Fighter IV “Beating a Dead Horse” tour). I can’t wait for this!

  • Looks a lot better than it did originally, 50 characters is going to be awesome. Looking forward to playing it

  • johnstalvern1

    Seeing some fan faves return is nice, so please
    Bring back KoF 94’s TEAM USA!
    Also, where’s my boy Clark Still/Steel at? I can’t get my Cross Changer on without the other member of the Gruesome Twosome.

    • I wouldn’t mind seeing an updated Team USA.

      Heavy D, maybe a new Basketball player, Football player or even a Baseball player to represent Team USA.

  • TaKeUrLiFe_NY

    Can’t wait for the new KOF but, will we ever see Capcom VS Snk 3?

  • Really looking forward to this! At a time, it seemed that SNK Playmore was happy to just re-release their older games over and over to newer platforms. But now we have a brand new KOF to look forward to after 6 years! My only concern is the online latency: please make your netcode stability priorities #1, #2, and #3! Best of luck!

  • from what i’ve seen two suggeations, that would give the game a more deep sence of enviroment… how about, a little inro to every stage before the fight, like kof 99 dream match on sega… wich was using 3 d graphics too for the stages… also more interaction between characters before and after the match, who have any kind of relation example; iori-kyo mai-andy mary-terry k’-kyo etc… kula-k’ etc…

  • aznpikachu215

    Is it possible to have this on PC at the same time it’s available on the PS4? Also, there needs to be spectator mode.

  • Well, I’m a frequent denizen of the competitive fighting game forum called Shoryuken.com. I typed out a detailed impression of KOFXIV from a competitive KOF98 player’s perspective. KOFXIV was really fun the many hours I tried it at Playstation Experience. If anyone wants to check out my post about it, it’s located here: http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/comment/10496706/#Comment_10496706

  • It looks a lot better from the first trailer. I’m gonna enjoy this. Possibly more than other fighters
