SNK Playmore has started a series of The King of Fighters XIV team introductions, with details on its members and trailers. The first is Team Japan, with Kyo Kusanagi, Benimaru Nikaido, and Goro Daimon.
Here’s some information on the members from the official website:
- Kyo Kusanagi: Kyo Kusanagi is the legitimate heir of the ancestral arts of the Kusanagi clan. Despite his seemingly rude and arrogant demenanor, he has innate gifts for fighting, and can reduce any of his opponents into ashes via his pyrotechnic skills. Iori Yagami is his “eternal enemy”.
- Benimaru Nikaido: Born of American and Japanese parents, Benimaru is a young son of a multi-millionaire family. This genius fighter specializes in shooting and electricity-based techniques. Benimaru is also Kyo’s best friend and friendly rival.
- Goro Daimon: Former gold medalist in judo at the Olympic Games, Goro decided one day to improve his discipline by adding new techniques such as “tremendous earthquakes”. He later joined Kyo and Benimaru to participate in the KOF Tournament. Goro always seems to have a very serious expression, but he is a hard-worker.
The King of Fighters XIV will release in North America and South America on August 23 and Japan on August 25, 2016 for PlayStation 4.
