Capcom’s Street Fighter V may have a foothold on the fighting game world right now, but SNK Playmore’s upcoming King of Fighters XIV has also been making the rounds in the SNK game community as of late. SNKP announced at a closed press conference at Taipei Game Show yesterday that King of Fighters veterans Benimaru, K’, and Robert Garcia will be joining XIV’s projected roster of 50 fan favorites.
