#KOFXIV Arcade Differences / Controversial Tournament Ending

At a recent tournament, a strange thing occurred.  The last last last match started slowing down, and then for the last chunk of life, the match froze.   We all expected the game to continue at some point, but then Charlybeatz sent a message saying he had won!  His opponent, Em Sal, was still watching the same frozen screen…

So what are you supposed to do in this situation? Check out the stream replay below.

KOFXIV, as part of the Valentine day sales, is now at 60% off!!!!!!!

It’s now invite only for spectators too!  No favourites being played here, entrance tickets drawn by lottery and even Keykakko couldn’t get a ticket!

Speaking of Japan… something’s happening Apr 15…

XIV Arcade differences

It seems the devs are working on the arcade version in order for it to roll out onto Nesica Live first before patching the PS4 version.  Nothing serious, but who knows what the future will hold.  Frionel was at the JAEPO show reporting.  We can already see the multiple configs are available.

Speaking of Frionel, guess who’s joining us for Cannes!


Here’s some photos from the JAEPO show!

btw… RIP Esaka 2016, next time grab a case before it’s gone!

Why am I posting a tweet with a blank picture?  Ahhhh

#KOFXIV coming to Arcade

Oda had posted his attendance at the arcade tournament Toshinsai and M’ won the kof13 tournament there but we didn’t suspect there was more than that…

Nobuyuki was happy that he was now allowed to mention that kof14 is a launch title with Nesica Live 2.

With Nesica1 in the US, as long as it’s supported, it could be good news for the ailing arcade scene, although too late for some of Europe’s arcades, at least in Paris, with Versus Dojo having shut it doors and Arcade Street is due to close Oct 20. It’s certainly good news for Japan, Tokyo and for the FGC there, as finding a place to hold tournaments was turning out to be very expensive.

Whether the new system is a direct upgrade or a replacement and whether operators have to pay for it remains to be seen. More info will come in February at the JAEPO show.

The system will also feature online play!

Other titles include Blazblue CF !

Older titles such as Yatagarasu, Skullgirls, Rumble Fish, Arcana Hearts, KOF13, Chaos Code will still be available.

Oda was on hand to make the announcement at Toshinsai 2016, thanks to GatoRay for the clip.  Check out the announcement trailer below.
