SNK and Atlus has just announced that the new King of Fighters XIV character is none other than Rock Howard. The character actually leaked early, but now SNK have confirmed that Rock Howard is the last of the four new DLC characters coming via the game’s April 5th update. Rock Howard has been a fan favorite since he debuted on the legendary Garou: Mark of the Wolves.
Rock Howard joins the other three DLC characters:
While the DLC characters will cost you $4.99 each, the April 5th update will also include some free content including:
- “Transcontinental Railroad” and “City Circuit” stages added (free)
- Overall character balance adjustments
- Action record and playback feature during dummy reversals in Training Mode added
- Background music added
- Feature improvements and some bug fixes
Got to say, two free stages isn’t bad. You can check out teases of both of the stages below in picture form. I have actually seen King of Fighters XIV on sale for rather cheap lately and I recommend a pretty underrated fighting game. For those of you who have played it, how do you feel about SNK giving the game a ton of free updates, including the graphics update earlier this year? Does free content and returning characters make you want to get back into the game? let us know in the comments below.
