A previous report from Gamenguide discussed the changes "The King of Fighters XIV" received from the 1.05 update. The latest patch fix focused on tweaking some online connectivity issues and addressed the ranked match point distribution. It also fixed some character balance concerns with Robert Garcia and Athena Asamiya.
"The King of Fighters XIV" is the second game in the entire series to use 3D character models. The first being "The King of Fighters: Maximum Impact" for the PS2. The game supports the same gameplay mechanics unique to its series, but adds a new custom combo system. The matches still retain the three versus three format, which allows players to mix and match their dream team from a total of 50 selectable characters.
