That King of Fighters XIV graphical overhaul is here

I'm still very happy with King of Fighters XIV, and although I can't find that many people that actually play it, it's still getting plenty of love from SNK and the community at large. Part of that passion from the former group has tak...

Review: The King of Fighters XIV

Meet King of Fighters XIV's Team Kim

The end of an era continues as King of Fighters goes full 3D with its character models. There's going to be 50 fighters, 19 new, which I assume is because the 3D models are easier to work with than drawing sprites. With all those character...
