The King of Fighters XIV releases on the PlayStation 4 on August 23rd. This week they are introducing Team Women Fighters, and Team K.
We have good news and bad news. The bad news is we only have two more THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV teams left to introduce. The good news is that the game will launch in less than a week! While I’m sure you all enjoy these informative blasts, it’s almost time to get some actual hands-on practice with these teams. First thing’s first though, let’s take a look at Team K’ and Women Fighters.
Team K’ is comprised of elite fighters who used to be members of nefarious Illuminati-type syndicate known as NESTS. The team’s presumed leader is the cyborg weapon Maxima who will do everything in his power to shut down the evil organization. This includes assaulting tournament opponents with strikes, grappling moves, and advanced weaponry. You don’t want to mess with him, and his teammate K’ is quite the dangerous fighter as well. While K’ doesn’t have cybernetic enhancements, he has been infused with the DNA of Kyo Kusanagi which allows him to control fire. His self taught pure violence style of fighting, coupled with his affinity for flames, makes him a good teammate to watch your back. Lastly, we have the ice skating ice queen Kula Diamond! Originally trained to assassinate K’, Kula has flipped the script and now joins the fight to bring down NESTS. She’s an extremely dangerous combatant who wields ice powers and fights with an Anti-K’ style (makes sense), and will help the team do whatever it takes to complete their task.
Team K’ appears to have all the right tools and skills to go the distance, but can they withstand the awesome might of girl power? That’s because Team Women Fighters plans to win the tournament in spectacular fashion just because they can. First off, we have the iconic ninja Mai Shiranui! The only thing more dangerous than her looks is her skill with Shiranui-ryuu Ninjutsu and ability to create fire. She may act like a totally ditz, but that’s just so she can lure enemies into a false sense of security before thrashing them with masterful ninja techniques. Next up, we have the hard-hitting bartender King. Although King can whip up a deliciously dangerous Mai Tai, she prides herself on whipping opponents in the ring with her deadly Muay Thai strikes. Don’t sleep on her, unless you want to get rudely awoken by some ‘bows to the face. The last piece of the team is the bubbly Alice who models her fighting style after her idols Terry and Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi. Although she might not emulate their styles perfectly, she’s still a very capable fighter who hits opponents so hard that money flies out of their pockets! It’s safe to say that Team Women fighters have one of the best shots at the tournament belt.
