The King of Fighters XIV

The fourteenth installment in the legendary Japanese series of fighting games started in 1994 on Neo Geo console and arcade cabinets. In contrast to the majority of other installments in the franchise, famous for very detailed 2D graphics, The King of Fighters XIV offers fully three-dimensional arenas. This greatly impacts the gameplay, making it more similar to the Tekken or Dead or Alive series. The King of Fighters IV is the first installment in the series to be released on PlayStation 4. In the game, the players assume the role of a warrior of their choosing and fight against opponent controlled by either another player or by the AI. The game offers a wide choice of playable characters. Some of them return from previous entries in The King of Fighters series, but their fighting style was adapted to new gameplay mechanics that uses three-dimensional environment. The game itself focuses on performing attacks and combining them into combos while avoiding enemy blows. In addition to the singleplayer modes, among which there are arcade and training mode, King of Fighters XIV also contains advanced multiplayer options.
