The King of Fighters XIV ‘Story’ and ‘Antonov’ trailers

Meet the villanous billionare man-mountain.

The King of Fighters XIV

SNK Playmore released two new trailers for The King of Fighters XIV introducing the game’s Story Mode and a character named Antonov.

Here’s Antonov’s description, via North American publisher Atlus:

A villainous eccentric billionaire/man-mountain who bought the rights to the King of Fighters brand in order to host a new tournament. The self proclaimed “One True King of Fighters” has an array of devastating strikes and bone-crunching grappling that will make him a tough opponent to face. I mean, anyone who sports glorious mutton chops and wears a championship belt during a fight must be near unbeatable right?

The King of Fighters XIV is due out for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 23, in Japan on August 25, and in Europe on August 26. A demo is due out on July 19.

Watch the trailers below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
