King of Fighters XIV Coming to Steam, Closed Beta Later This Month

SNK's latest fighter is making the jump from PS4 to PC.

SNK announced today that King of Fighters XIV will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive no longer. The revitalized company's first fighter will be making the jump from Sony's platform to Steam! The news came during a Chinese press conference this morning and SNK's global Twitter account confirmed it.

Players will be able to pre-purchase the game this month, with a planned Closed Beta coming prior to launch. SNK will be offering more details soon.

When I reviewed King of Fighters XIV at launch on PlayStation 4, I found a decent foundation for SNK to build from. And the company has built, improving the game's graphics and adding a host of additional characters to KOFXIV's roster, including Whip, Ryuji Yamazaki, Vanessa, and Rock Howard.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
