The ultimate fighting game demo was first revealed at Play Station Experience 2015. Fans were able to play "The King Fighters XIV" on Dec. 5 to 6.

"I can't talk in details, but we've had a draft for a roster that was nearly all old characters and another one that was nearly all new characters, and we took them and also put into consideration our market which has become pretty global," Oda said in separate interview with Famitsu.
