Earlier this month it was announced that King of Fighter XIV will be adding several returning characters via DLC! Let's take a look! 

First off was the character Whip, who first debuted in KOF'99. She's an enigmatic and quiet individual who acts towards her own goals. Considered an extremely dangerous fighter who's skill with the whip is unmatched. She was the first of the four DLC characters announced and is planned for release on April 5th for $5.99. You can view some of her gameplay HERE.

Next up is Ryuji Yamazaki, who actually made his debut in SNK's Fatal Fury 3. This deranged psychopath with a split personality, and has a tendency to batter opponents with an assortment of foreign objects ranging from ladders to street signs, even a TUNA fish! Yamazaki will also be released on April 5th, and we assume for the same price as Whip. You can check out some gameplay HERE.

The third DLC character announced is Vannessa. First appearing in The King of Fighters '99: Evolution as a "Striker" character, she didn't become a fully playable character until The King of Fighters 2000. Her true identity is an ordinary housewife but secretly works as a mercenary agent, and now she's back to take on all comers with her flashy boxing style! Like Whip and Yamazaki, she too will be released on April 5th and believed to be the same price of $5.99. You can see some gameplay HERE.

Now for the final announced DLC character. Series fan-favourite Rock Howard will be joining the KOFXIV roster. He first appeared in the final chapter of SNK's Fatal Fury series, Garou: Mark of the Wolves. SNK has said while he was considered a low-tier fighter in previous games, he's been revamped for KOFXIV! The release day and price for Rock hasn't been announced as of yet.

In addition to these four DLC characters, new stages, and BGM tracks will be released for free on the same day to all users.
