Pick up your favorite characters, create unique teams, and be ready for endless and epic battles!
Oswald is an old and very composed gentleman, and he’s also a former hitman very well-known in the underworld society. He has mastered the Karnoffel assassination art and uses playing cards to slice and dice his opponents. As a veteran poker player, he never shows his hand.
Heidern commands the mercenary unit that Ralf and Clark are also a part of. He fights his enemies using a combination of martial arts and self-taught assassination techniques. As a military officer, Heidern is always calm and silent but can be very paternal to his adopted daughter, Leona.
Najd is a very quiet person dressed with an Abaya (traditional Saudi garment) with extraordinary powers. At night, she puts on her Abaya and turns into a vigilante to protect her fellow citizens. In contrast to her mysterious appearance, she is a college student during the day.
Blue Mary makes her living as a freelance special agent. She was born into a family known for being accomplished martial artists. She is a specialist in multiple types of martial arts, especially the Sambo fighting style which excels at grappling moves. She has been friends with Terry Bogard for years now.
This new and massive update to KOF XIV features not only numerous rebalancing and changes to the game but also a brand new background stage based in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) for even more hot battles! Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia, appears in the game as a brand new stage with an interesting mix of modern and traditional styles. It features the Masmak fort in the foreground with modern skyscrapers adoring the background. This update to version 3.0 will be added for free.
