Headed to PlayStation 4 sometime next year, the latest entry in the series ditches the gorgeous 2D look of The King of Fighters XIII in favor of new 3D visuals. While the graphics have changed, SNK Playmore has said the gameplay will keep the 2D feel of previous titles. For a very early look at the game in action, watch the teaser trailer below.
Honestly the graphics in the game look bad. Although I’m sure it is very early in development, the graphics look PS2 level to me. The King of Fighters XIII art style was beautiful to me and I would have much preferred an updated version of that. I understand the economics of the situation may have forced the developers hand, but I hope the visuals of the game greatly improve before release.
