Yamazaki confirmed as next DLC character in King of Fighters XIV

Recently SNK and Atlus announced that it was adding new characters via DLC to the King of Fighters XIV. Last week, the first character revealed was Whip and now we have our second character joining the battle, long time fighter Ryuji Yamazaki.

Yamazaki has been absent from the King of Fighter series following the conclusion of the King of Fighters 2003. While he retains all of his trademark moves, the character trailer shows a new Desperation move which sends his opponent into the corner after violently striking their abdomen. His previous close range grab DM is now his Climax special, which will have a different animation finish based on the stage you are fighting on.

You can watch Yamazaki’s introduction trailer below.

Whip is slated to release on April 5th. This could mean Ryuji Yamazaki and the other two DLC characters might also arrive on the same day or shortly after.
