SNK EVO Japan Talk Show Synopsis (Major King of Fighters XIV Patch Incoming)

SNK logo

At the EVO Japan Talk Show Panel at the Tokyo Game Show, SNK staff, Yasuyuki Oda and Hidetoshi “Neo_G” Ishizawa, shared their insights and plans about The King of Fighters XIV and the future projects of SNK after KOF XIV. They also shared minor details of the aborted Garou: Mark of the Wolves sequel.

Synopsis (Provided by Professor of MadMan’s Cafe):

  • The King of Fighters XIV’s Patch that has balance, input and gameplay fixes, and improved matchmaking will come on October.
  • The feedback was surprisingly positive for the staff. Although they admit there are moves that were “too powerful”.
  • They will later announce the details in a further date about The King of Fighters XIV World Championship.
  • They consider about DLC Costumes in the future, but they still need to think out if DLC characters are considered.
  • They are not planning their next game yet after KOF XIV. While Samurai Shodown VII is considered, each of the development team are still sharing their presentations of other titles before their superiors.
  • Some insights of the abandoned Garou: MOW sequel:
    • The game was in 50% in development before being cancelled.
    • Most newcomers are “intellectual villains”.
    • Gato’s (and probably Hotaru’s) father’s name is Gaoh (written in Japanese as 牙王 (translation: fang king)). He’s the new character with red hair, asymmetrical shirt and black pants.
    • Gato’s sprite is altered, with his eyes closed (Gaoh blinds Gato as he was attempting to kill Kain in his ending).
    • The full name of Joe’s female student is Kwan Khontai.
    • The unnamed white haired boy wearing a cap beside Kain looks over as Rock’s guardian after joining in his side.
  • Oda admitted that arcades die down, causing lack of player socialization. However with tournaments and events such as EVO Japan, where players can socialize again.
  • The memorable incident in KOF XIV’s development was Neo_G’s Kabutomushi (Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle). His beetles overbred, causing him to give away some of them to the development team.
