The first of the teased wave of DLC characters shines in the latest KOFXIV trailer.
KOF developer SNK recently announced a new wave of DLC for The King of Fighters XIV, including new stages, colors and extra characters. Adding onto the impressive launch roster of 50 characters- 31 returning, 19 brand new- the first new DLC character was revealed to be “Whip”. The whip-wielding soldier “Seirah” made her KOF debut in The King of Fighters ’99 as a new member of Team Ikari [Warriors] under her weapon-based nickname. Apart from her impressive display of hand-to-hand combat, Whip also fights with her signature NESTS-manufactured energy-whip; in previous installments of the franchise, her whip could transform into a sword, projectiles and a gun, though her KOFXIV incarnation appears to focus on short-range blitz attacks and long-range grappling.
Whip will release through PSN on 4/5 for $4.99. The King of Fighters XIV is currently available as a PS4-exclusive title.
