Story mode trailer + the promise of an upcoming 7 character demo on PSN:

Final boss, Antonov, teaser. Looks like a the usual steroid-obsessed f*** you boss...

Judging by the end of the story mode trailer with all the mystical/evil energy swirling around, I don't doubt that there will be a second form to Antonov or a follow-up boss from hell in the usual SNK fashion.

Can't wait to play the demo. I think the story has some kind of Orochi influence in it - Antanov is trying to do something to harness? his power? I forget, I'm more interested in seeing Terry and co fight the South Town team to reignite the rivalry with Geese!

Yeah I posted it on the previous page. The are apparently also meant to be reviving the "Future is Now" slogan :mrgreen:

The trailer makes mention of Antanov claiming to be the original KOF champion. If this is true then I suppose it would go all the way back to before the events of the earlier games where the Orochi power was very much a big part of the storyline. Who knows!

Demo is up now for those interested. Training and Vs mode is where I've spent most of my time. I like it very much, characters, while not looking as nice as their sprite counterparts do still look very clean and well animated, and the gameplay seems very good from what I played so far (classic KOF). Very excited to play more, as I'm liking some of the new characters - Nelson seems very interesting so far, a nice cool boxer that doesn't really have any special moves, just a whole heap of interesting chain attacks.

I like what I've played so far, Ive not been keeping up with the development but the change to 3d models seems fine and it runs silky smooth.

Not tried any of the new characters yet as Kyo and Iori are 2 of my 3 mains so have just been messing with them. I'm glad Iori has his flames back!

Yeah, the character models have come a long way from the original (terrible) reveal trailer. Some looked a bit crap in the story cutscenes in the trailers (worse than actual in-game models?!?) but otherwise, what I've seen so far has crushed my initial scepticism.

I forgot to buy it to be honest! Been watching the pennies these last few months and just haven't bought any games at all even though I can afford to. Will have to grab this to support the game and SNK!

It's a shame if it is selling poorly, as I'm quite fond of it - I gave it 8/10 in issue 159.

Remembered I had a fair bit of Amazon credit left on my account so I used it to part fund the KOF XIV day one edition (not really bothered about this edition tbh but it was no more expensive than a regular PS4 release) and Mortal Kombat XL which I'd also forgotten to pick up.
