Thanks to SNK, we got our first look at high level King of Fighters 14 play this past weekend at KSB 2016. This tournament's build sported 24 characters, many of whom we haven't seen before.

Returning characters like Ryo, Vice and Kim felt very true to their previous counterparts, while having a few new tweaks. Others like Iori felt like a blend of different iterations from previous games.

Iori especially stood out when it came to character selection in this top 8; Jamuwo was the only player that did not have him on his team.

In spite of early mixed reviews for the series' new look, each time we see the game in action things do start to look better and better. The action in the game is fast paced, and mechanics like Just Defend and Maxmode fall in line with what we're used to seeing out of the series.

You can check out the action from the full top 8 in the video below.
