1.10 is out on January 11
SNK decided to listen to fan complaints and up the visual quality of King of Fighters XIV — which, not coincidentally, is the worst part of the game. It’s still planned for a 1.10 update, which is on track for a January 11 release date, and will upgrade the shading and lightning aspects, and bump the color variations for each character from four to six.
In other news, there’s a new free “classic costume” DLC out for Athena today, which you can grab until January 22, as well as two Athena-centric PS4 themes that seem to be premium downloads, but SNK didn’t disclose the price (several themes are available now, and range from free to $2.99). The developer also notes that folks should “grab the DLC before it becomes a paid costume,” at which point it’ll probably revert to a $1.99 asking price, joining the classic Kyo and Nightmare Geese outfits on the PSN.
