Following in the footsteps of other fighting game devs, SNK recently announced an official competition for both Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters XIV. The SNK World Championship is scheduled for March 2020, and the entire shebang will feature a prize pool of over 10 million yen, or around $95,000.
King of Fighters veterans Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond are now available as DLC fighters for Dead or Alive 6. The pair fit perfectly into the game, though so far I prefer the quick strikes of the blue-haired Ice Doll to Mai’s fiery fan attacks. Both are free for season pass owners, $7.99 apiece to everybody else.
