Ladies and Gentlemen, The King of Fighters is back for PS4, and after the announcement at Sony’s press conference in Tokyo, you can enjoy the first screenshots from The King Of Fighters XIV .
HOLY FREAKING [email protected]#%$T!, didn't expect a KoF comeback. So unexpected and awesome!, need more info now!!! King of fighters series has always been one of the best fighting games outhere!! hope they bring their awesome music scores too! Gawd damn I'm so excited didn't expect this :O
Street Fighter V, KOF XIV and Guilty Gears Xrd all Top fighting games exclusive or Console exclusive to PS4 making PS4 King of Fighting genre.
If only Sony and Konamy could revive Bloody Roar. That would be a very nice addition too
This game was brought up about 2 years ago and no bloody roar can stay where it is lol http://www.eventhubs.com/ne...
@Yi-Long Yeah a Samurai Showdown remake would be unbelievable. I would also love to see a remade Rival Schools. I would buy both of those games so fast it would make your head spin.
This is insane.. If people ask didn't realize PS4 is the home of fighters this might change their minds. Remember everyone that Dissidia is also hitting PS4. No better way to promote a KOF return than by putting exclusive and Kyo Iori fighting.
PS4- undeniably the home of fighters and jrpgs this gen. Uncontested by a country mile and KOF is another nuke in the arsenal. Looks beautiful.
They just need to bring bloody roar back.
Sorry, but we need a new Bloody Roar game. And the graphics need to be at least Tekken quality. I would love to see a comeback of one the most cherished fighting games besides Psychic Force!
@Red Awww Psychic Force was a dope game back then.
Only thing Xbone has of note is Killer Instinct and Nintendo Smash 4. Im sure KOF will be good but XIII looks way better stylistically. I know this is early footage but even though the gameplay looks good as ever visually it is bland.
Games which need an iteration in the current generation: Soul Calibur (with an expansive roster), Bushido Blade (my hill to die on), War of the Monsters (come on Sony), Darkstalkers (filtered through Street Fighter V), Samurai Showdown/Spirits ("My boiling blood bubbles for battle."), Power Stone (and a resurgence of 3D arena fighters), Primal Rage (and more kaiju-based fighting games) Give me new versions of these games and I won't bother you for a while.
@Madden Raiders A Samurai Showdown remake on PS4 would be awesome, definitely icing on the cake....lol
I would love some new party fighters Like Power Stone. At least re release collection on PSN so it's payable on ps3/4 KOF is my 2nd or 3rd fav of all time next to Guilty Gear and Mortal Kombat.
Let's all be realistic here. If this game was announced as Multiplatform. 99% off the trolling negative comments would be nowhere to be seen. Sad but true. We are ALL GAMERS!!!! Why can't people respect other people who love the same hobby but might play on a different companies console? Every damn exclusive games thread (PS4 or XBONE) is derailed by the same numb nuts spouting the same fanboy dribble. /rant (sorry)
All they have now is Killer Instinct
Oh look... it's king of fighters maximum impact 3. The first two were good. The third looks to continue the trend.
I have a feeling this is a timed exclusive and wouldn't be surprised if they also released this on PC considering King of Fighters XIII: Ultimate Edition did pretty well on steam. The same goes for Guilty Gear. ARC System Works released Guilty Gear XX and BlazBlue on PC, and a port would be super simple considering it uses Unreal Engine. It's good to see that many Japanese developers finally taking notice of the booming PC gaming market. In just the last couple years we've seen releases from Capcom, Sega, Namco Bandai, and Square Enix... all companies who historically have stayed away from PC. @chrisco84au Who's trolling? I just glanced at the first half of the page and didn't see anything. Or were you just trying to make a preemptive attack on the xbots? edit\ never mind... i see what you're talking about. The trolls did arrive in force. lol.
@Concertoine I agree on the graphics. I'm a HARDCORE KOF fan, so I've been waiting for this announcement for years already, but the characters look really plastic and expressionless, like early PS2 CG cinemas. Compared to the much more expressive characters in Street Fighter and even Tekken, it looks underwhelming. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm buying the $#!+ out of this game, it's f*(king King of Fighters, after all. But let's not mince words here, SNK could work a little more on those character models.
I really wish they would bring back Samurai Shodown. Such fantastic character design in that series.
Be nice, but I think I'd rather see Bushido Blade than Samurai Showdown.
Looks like the PS4 is the king of fighters just like the PS3 was last gen. See what I did there? lol :)
PS4 is gonna become king of fighting games.
Graphics look just as bad, if not worse, as Devil's Third on the Wii U. Characters look uninspiring as ever also. There's nothing to be excited about.
The game looks fine. It's about gameplay, animation, framerate, and controls. The graphics are *more than* serviceable, it's nothing to complain about. There is plenty to be excited about if you like the franchise and believe they'll pull off the gameplay. It's not always about having a new graphical powerhouse to showcase your entertainment center, or whatever.
My brand new laptop almost fell off my lap laughing so hard at this. The nonsense on show here is unbelievable. The game is one of the worst looking games I've seen in a long time, possibly the worst of the entire generation. I can find dozens of PS3 games that look better than this. Some in native 1080p also. KoF is an awesome franchise, no doubt about that...with the exception of this game, so it looks.
I agree. Meh.. doesn't look impressive at all to me. It could be 1440K and I still wouldn't be impressed. There was video of the gameplay at the conference which made it even worse. The animation just wasn't all that good. SFV animation was leagues ahead of what they showed.
Ps4 the fighting king baby, king of fighters, street fighter and guilty gear, damn this is to crazy.
I want a new Samurai Showdown damnit!
^THIS Sam Sho!
@Maddens Raiders you had to say samurai showdown didnt you ? now i imagine it with HD graphics and online multiplayer :((( if only ....
Yeah.i wonder what ms is going to do to counter sf and kof? Ki isnt enough to hold down. This gen os crazy with exclusives and timed exclusives and games that were exclusives no longer being so
Lmao at the KI comment, I can't even.
As a hardcore SNK fan, I agree. When I first saw this article I was expecting gorgeous 2d visuals, or something like gulity gear Xrd. This, just doesnt look like a KOF game in those pics. Ill keep an eye on it though. Hopefully it still plays like a traditional 2D fighter. I just wanted it to look like this, but better: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I think most SNK fans would prefer 2D sprites, nevertheless we all knew that sooner or later they would have to modernize. But did they really have to make it this bland and boring? It doesn't have the appeal and timeless charm of traditional 2D animation, nor does it have the class of well stylized 3D visuals. It just looks generic and dated, almost like an HD remaster of the Maximum Impact games. Lets just hope they get the gameplay right.
I can't believe there's no sprites!
Indeed. Many of us just wanted to see more KOF characters from past games, brought back in the KOF XIII style.
Shines? It looks like it could've launched with the PS3, and all that aliasing on a game that looks like that is pretty poor, technically. But more galling is the incredibly bland artstyle. The characters look lifeless. Street Fighter going 3D worked because they utilised an artstyle that preserved the hyper-stylized spirit of 2D fighters. Kyo doesn't even look like Kyo, he looks like a porcelain doll (almost DOA like). After Guilty Gear Xrd on the PS4 as well, they surely must see how this doesn't stack up. SNK Playmore can be allowed a certain amount of grace due to them not having much experience in 3D games, but I certainly hope the gameplay is intact.
agree 100%. Looks both graphically behind a gen, and stylistically looks like some random one-off 3d fighter from a no-name company.
it doesn't look good tbh
Who cares as long as it's good, besides it's snk not big company like capcom.
There is nothing lovely about those screenshots
I agree. It looks kind of looks like a PS3 launch game. Hopefully the graphics improve before the game is released.
Umm to the nitwits saying this doesn't look that good ummm have you ever played a King of fighters before? Please say no then I understand your frustration. But if you actually have then wow you are looking like a knobb saying this doesn't look good at all.. first KoF in HD like SF4 it will be 3D but plays 2D like duhhh that looks impressive vs anything KoF has had before give your fat heads a shake omg.
I dont even understand what you're saying here or trying to convey . Yes i've played kof since the beginning and Garou before that , and yes it looks bad here in this trailer . What's even your point ? You seems like you are insulting everyone when you dont even understand the convo . "first KoF in HD like SF4 it will be 3D but plays 2D" Er most people got that , and never thought otherwise . People are complaining about the quality of those designs when everyone , and by that we mean all fighting games companies that made that jump so far managed to translate their roots in 2.5d much better . "looks impressive vs anything KoF has had before" Well not for us . On the art side , SO FAR , it doesnt look even as good as Maximum Impact , even if it's obviously and probably better on a technical and engine level . And it doesnt even look that much better than their previous attempts at Samurai Spirits 3d in arcade . Maybe it will have an awesome gameplay ... and maybe they'll actually change designs due to backlash or some plan to improve on the game ... but it doesnt look good for now
this is a ps3 game in HD for THE ps4 lol
whats wrong with the graphics
Wow man love some KoF. Me and my friends love beating each other up with the different teams.
These screenshots don't look so lovely...
This is crazy. I know a die hard KOF fan. He is going to flip when I tell him this. Man PS4 is getting good fighters. I was just getting used to SFV being exclusive and now this!!!! I wonder if its timed or not. Going to do little research on this.
Another 3D KOF with lousy grafics, all 3D KOF games have been desapointing, why cant this people do some proper grafics in a KOF game, they got stuck in time, this barely makes it as a PS3 game.
PS4 is the place to go for fighting games.
I Love King of Fighters or any SNK fighter really. Would love a Capcom vs SnK aswell Sony. Awesome news tho..
About time they upped their graphics XD I still have hopes that one day I will see a new Bloody Roar game.
Wow I didn't know it was exclusive. King of Fighters AND Street Fighter? Man, Sony ain't playing around. Either way, I'm glad SNK is finally pushing out another KoF.
KOF IS BACK! Huge KoF fan and I have been wondering what the hell SNK was doing. But good lord...what the hell are we looking at here? Those screen shots look worse than Maximum Impact! I was really hoping for some Guilty Gear like graphic style not Korean pop stars fighting. Let's hope SNK changes or at least makes this looks better.
I dont think its exclusive dual shockrs seems to be the only ones saying so. But from that teaser trailer didnt look good at all
While I don't think this looks amazing... I am still stoked. Have to remember fighting games don't always look great in their initial reveals. SFV looked like trash and now it appears to be shaping up fairly well.
so far ps4 is the place for rpg / fighting / adventure / indie / and soon racing games... also best for sports
Racing games? I think not
That must be just a mistake.... He couldn't really be serious.
You forgot Platformer & Horror genres too
Racing games? How is that? It's lagged behind in that department and been lapped a few times already. Unless you're preemptively putting faith in GT
Could you try and read the comment again?
You mean JRPG, dunno how you are getting "racing" in there, maybe when GT7 launches. Meanwhile PS4 is really lacking FPS/TPS.
I love Kof ps4 got the fighters this gen. Unless xb1 backwards compatibility brings Sf 2 sf2hd Sf3 sf4 mvc origins Mvc2 mvc3 umvc3 for 95 Kof 98 Kof 2002 Kof 12 kof13 mark of the wolves Darkstalkers soul caliber soul caliber 4 soul caliber 5 Virtua fighter dead or alive
