King of Fighters graphical update still coming, free DLC out now


1.10 is out on January 11

SNK decided to listen to fan complaints and up the visual quality of King of Fighters XIV— which, not coincidentally, is the worst part of the game. It’s still planned for a 1.10 update, which is on track for a January 11 release date, and will upgrade the shading and lightning aspects, and bump the color variations for each character from four to six.

In other news, there’s a new free “classic costume” DLC out for Athena today, which you can grab until January 22, as well as two Athena-centric PS4 themes that seem to be premium downloads, but SNK didn’t disclose the price (several themes are available now, and range from free to $2.99). The developer also notes that folks should “grab the DLC before it becomes a paid costume,” at which point it’ll probably revert to a $1.99 asking price, joining the classic Kyo and Nightmare Geese outfits on the PSN.
