King of Fighters 14

SNK Playmore’s King of Fighters 14 will be out on PlayStation 4 this year and director Yasuyuuki Oda made sure to clarify to Famitsu (translation by Siliconera) that all 50 characters will be playable at launch.

“That’ll be fine. All 50 characters will be playable at launch. There will be numerous characters at launch, and we don’t plan on adding more bits at a time, so be sure to properly jot that down [laughs]. It wouldn’t be a KoF game with a small number of characters, after all.”

At this point, Oda isn’t sure about more characters being added after launch. “[DLC] will have to wait until we see how the 50 characters do after launch, so it has yet to be decided.”

Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 is planning to introduce more characters via DLC but it will allow players the ability to unlock them in-game using Fight Money. Alternatively, they can be purchased with real money using Zenny. What are your thoughts on KOF 14 having all of its characters playable at launch? Let us know in the comments.
