King of Fighters XIV will release for the PlayStation 4 this summer, yet some have expressed their worry regarding the way the game appears to play, noting that it appears markedly slower than previous installations in the series. Despite this, many who have played the game insist there is nothing wrong with the speed. [Thanks, Shoryuken.]
To prove which side of this debate is actually correct, YouTube user Orpheus Santos has created a comparison video by taking pieces of gameplay from KOFXIV and then recreating the same situations in King of Fighters 2002 and King of Fighters XIII, as well as the KOF fangame King of Fighters WING.
Interestingly, the results of the comparison show that King of Fighters XIV’s gameplay is just as fast as previous games, excluding the additional cinematic starter animation for some combos.
To get a look at the similarities for yourself, you can check out the comparison footage below.
King of Fighters XIV is scheduled to release for the PlayStation 4 on August 23rd in North America and August 25th in Japan.
