Oswald returns to deal mayhem in King of Fighters XIV


What a card

SNK have revealed the latest roster addition to team-based battler The King of Fighters XIV, and it's none other than creepy card-chucker Oswald.

Oswald is one of the legendary franchisers lesser-known players, having only showed in a single iteration, King of Fighters XI, where he teamed with my boy Ash Crimson and hot-tempered puncher Shen Woo. While the latter two both made later appearances, Oswald has never appeared in a KoF roster since.

Until this year, as the sharp dressed man is returning to the ring, complete with his bizarre fighting stance and playing card-based attacks, (Gambit who?) Although he is yet to be given a release date, a trailer has been unveiled showing off his rapid-fire special attacks. Ace.

King of Fighters XIV is available now on PS4 and PC.
