NCG talks with key developers and artists for King of Fighters XIV

We had another amazing opportunity to speak with some very influential people in fighting game development.  This time, we got a chance to speak briefly with SNK’s Yasuyuki Oda (producer) Eisuke Ogura (illustrator/graphic designer) Hayato Watanabe (battle designer),  Neo_G (lead game designer) and Keisuke Nishikawa (SNK Marketing/stand-in translator) about King of Fighters XIV.  Again, we wish we were prepared with more questions, but it is very clear how thankful they are to see KoF XIV be met with so much success in North America.

Also, be sure to check out the KoF XIV demo out now.  The demo will have 7 playable characters: Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Mai Shiranui, Shun’Ei, Sylvie Paula, King of Dinosaurs and Nelson.
