I hope you have been reading and enjoying my Games I played in 2016 series so far. For those of you that have been reading, thank you. I aim to update the last part to my blog during next week.
In the meantime two interesting updates have been shared by developers Arc System Works and SNK. The first was the confirmation at the end of ASW's recent Arc Revolution Cup that they will be updating its ongoing weapons-based fighter with the aptly named GGXrd: Rev 2.
Arcade location tests have already taken place for the game which will see long-term series character and favourite, Baiken, return to the fray. Chipp's assistant and smartly-dressed ninja PA, Answer, will also join the roster. European publisher PQube has confirmed that the update will see a 2017 release (but no confirmation on an exact release date and price point as of yet).
EDIT: Arc System Works has recently confirmed the update will be getting a Japanese release on May 25th. Hopefully a Western release is not too far behind.
You can check the trailer for GGXrd: Rev 2 out below.
Not to be left behind, SNK also had its own reveals after the final of its recent The King of Fighters XIV World Championship. The trailer showed a nostalgia costume for Iori Yagami from his first appearance in The King of Fighters '95. The trailer also shared upcoming DLC costumes for a selection of the cast including Kula Diamond, Meiten, Sylvie and Angel. New stages will also be added free of charge to the game with a tribute to Terry Bogard's stage from Garou Densetsu 2 and the Monaco stage from The King of Fighters '97.
Finally (and perhaps most important of all), SNK confirmed that additional DLC characters will be coming to KOF XIV. Given all we have to go on now is a group image of white silhouettes, speculation is rampant among series fans.
|Who could these new additions to KOF XIV be? |
And just how many characters are actually there?
The end of the video confirms we will get more details in March which is only 1-2 weeks away. You can check out the trailer out for yourself below.
