The King of Fighters XIV releasing on Steam for PC on June 15

SNK Corporation has confirmed the release of The King of Fighters XIV which will be available for PC via Steam on June 15.

There’s a few new features in KOF XIV, some of which might be new to veteran players:

  • Party Battle:
    Duke it out with as many as six people (three players on each team) in VS Online “PARTY BATTLE”! Feel the heat of an authentic fighting game tournament experience.
  • RUSH:
    The newly introduced “RUSH” feature allows even novice players to perform combos by pressing Light Punch repeatedly.
  • Climax Cancel:
    The combo system has evolved in KOF XIV, allowing players to execute a CLIMAX SUPER SPECIAL MOVE from a SUPER SPECIAL MOVE in the same combo for astonishing damage.

Along with 54 fighters, there are an additional four DLC characters, and expect the traditional three-on-three team battles. There’s a plethora of options coming for the Steam edition of the game, where for the full $59.99 retail price which includes just the game – or a deluxe pack which includes the four DLC characters, a digital art book, soundtrack, and ten costumes for $74.99, pre-orders will fetch a hefty twenty-percent discount.
