Check out the backstory for the newcomers featured in the latest trailer, plus trending posts on Facebook, event reminders and the latest tweets, all neatly in one post.
Serious and polite high school girl, Athena fights her enemies by combining her Chinese martial arts techniques and her natural psychic powers. Respecting the KOF tradition, the idol and heroine character that has appeared in every KOF title since 1994 is back this time with a brand new outfit! Psycho Ball!

Has any KOF character had more costumes, and sprite work than the SNK Idol Goddess Athena? She returns with a huge …. death ball?

This fatal beauty with mysterious motivations will lacerate like a whip her enemies in KOF XIV with her long legs and kicking techniques. Fans of Juri may well enjoy this fighter who has Shermie wrestling moves, May Lee counters and Duo Lon ranged attacks. Rumours state she is in fact the wife of Kim Kaphwan’s master. Are the introduction screenshots provided by SNK a hint to confirm this or is it just coincidence? Her name seems to be of Vietnamese or Chinese origin, causing some confusion!
This young boxing prodigy has lost an arm after a terrible accident, but has been able to go back quickly into the ring thanks to a prosthesis conceived based on the last advanced robotic techniques. He fights now in order to seize the crown of World Champion, while hoping every day his partner will come out from a coma.

Play KOF, get cultured! This stage is based on the Iguazu Falls on the border of Argentina, near Brazil.
SYLVIE PAULA PAULA
One of the last remnants of NESTS, the beautiful young girl Sylvie was considered useless by the secret society until the day she demonstrated the extent of her electromagnetic powers. After the collapse of NESTS, she was scouted by the KOF tournament organizer during an underground fighting event. Sylvie is a totally new character and participates in KOF for the 1st time in this installment!

The UK’s premier event, not long to go now!!

Get yourself signed up to ensure you can potentially cross swords with a killer and see all the action unfold on the big stage among the hypest crowd in the country.
Hypespotting V. Hilton Hotel, Glasgow. 2nd & 3rd April 2016.
It’s hard to imagine how all these games will fit into one weekend, but it will be done. And while other events have “moved on” HS will still feature “dead” games, such as SF4 Ultra.
As we have mentioned before, Buttonczech 2016 takes place at Nová Chmelnice klub. The tournament will play out in a main hall with the size of over 200 m2, which is located on the 2nd floor of the building. The big thing in the main hall is obviously a huge podium where the featured/streamed matches will take place. Don’t worry if you think you’ll miss any action, as everything will be showed on a huge screen with a professional sound system.
See more at the Venue page.
6th to 8th May 2016.
- Street Fighter V
- Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-
