Whip officially revealed as King of Fighters 14's first DLC character, check out her trailer here

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • March 8, 2017 at 10:41 a.m. PST

The first of the four upcoming King of Fighters 14 DLC characters has been revealed. Today, SNK has unveiled Whip.

We see in her trailer that her name is still very much indicative of her combat-style. Using her whip, Whip bruises and batters foes with long ranged lashes and repeated strikes.

As of right now, a release window for the DLC character has not been divulged.

Whip and Yamazaki are obvious going by the silhouettes....
Question is Rock/Vanessa or Blue Mary/Shingo?!

HumanShirtRipper said on March 8, 2017 at 10:49 a.m.

I guess this means no Blue Mary, I am so sad now.

After I finish crying in a corner for Blue Mary deconfirmed, I'll be hyped for Whip

Good for Whip fans. Will buy her soldier type characters are my kind. I wanted to hear her Tarzan yell during climax swing.

#7
thisRalf said on March 8, 2017 at 10:54 a.m.

Meh. Her name is Whip, and she fights with, well, a whip.

Normally SNK has some of the best fighter designs. Yamazaki comes to mind, and Iori as well. This really is not one of them. I guess she is a bit of a fan favorite though. She has been in enough games.

Please, PLEASE give me Yamazaki.

Welp it's time to whip up some combos.

What is she swinging from in that climax?!

She looks cool!

How did they get the whip so smooth?

Typically, even in this gen, there are not enough polygons to make a whip type object that smooth-looking.

#18

My fave.

Oops, wrong game

BlackMasamune said on March 8, 2017 at 11:30 a.m.

I like the slow reveal of the silhouette, 1 down and 3 to go. I think Vanessa and Yamazaki are a lock.

#21
mario3d said on March 8, 2017 at 11:33 a.m.

But I see 3 characters on the silhouettes why 4??

#22
layer said on March 8, 2017 at 11:33 a.m.

With female characters in fighting games usually wearing next to no clothes; SNK female character designs are a breath of fresh air.

Mamahaha's cousin.

#24
Saikyo_no_Justu said on March 8, 2017 at 11:36 a.m.

There's some extra legs in the silhouette. The way they're leaning looks like Vanessa's stance.

#25
AngriestAngryArtist said on March 8, 2017 at 11:37 a.m.

when the silhouettes were broken down it shows multiple figures when they count how many legs it has.

So right now in theory there's 4 characters.

#26
The21stGamer said on March 8, 2017 at 11:38 a.m.

#27
LA_COMAY said on March 8, 2017 at 11:40 a.m.

Lol So the name decides if it's an original character? Go play with Ryu his name it's original.

The character has mechanics that no other SNK character has. Why do people jump in the salt wagon when a character they don't like it's revealed ? Grow up and learn to wait.

#28

AidanJames said on March 8, 2017 at 11:52 a.m.

Hope they use some of the other visually interesting characters. Like that guy with the bladed cape/coat. He had some amazing animations I'd like to see.

Also Yamazaki, Eiji, and Rock because reasons.

#32
darth_steve said on March 8, 2017 at 11:59 a.m.

love me some whip ;)

#33
MarthFE said on March 8, 2017 at 12:04 p.m.

Honestly, I'm disappointed. With this being shown, i don't think blue mary will make it. I feel whip is too boring a character.

However, I'm excited for whip fans because I know how loved she is, it's awesome to see so many people get a character they wanted when it didn't seem likely.
And her moves look cool too, she seems really well done and very fluid.

There's always the next character I suppose.

#34
RandomSelectMaster said on March 8, 2017 at 12:13 p.m.

I didn't realize that a lot of KoF fans are Whipped.

No desert Eagle?

#36
Pasco said on March 8, 2017 at 12:16 p.m.

Yeah, she seems cool, but the name is severely lacking. What's next calling a guy Claw when he fights with a claw... ;)

#37

Bautifull character I love her.

#38
Dazmund said on March 8, 2017 at 12:20 p.m.

The 3D graphics really suit Whip. Them new moves are peng, fam.

#39
sku said on March 8, 2017 at 12:26 p.m.

If I may correct the article somewhat, Atlus' official Twitter claims April 5th is when she's available. No idea if this date applies to all the DLC fighters, though.

#40
VanCityPlayboy said on March 8, 2017 at 12:29 p.m.

I heard Ikari theme song from KOF99 in the trailer. I do admit not a fan of Whip but I like how I heard the song. I knew the very left was Whip

#41
Blackoshinomi said on March 8, 2017 at 12:30 p.m.

Her real name is actually Seirah . Here nickname in the Ikari warriors team is Muchiko and that means Whip girl

She a clone of K dash sister and she only appeared 7 games

#42
Blackoshinomi said on March 8, 2017 at 12:32 p.m.

Or maybe just maybe Whip is not her real name . Has that ever crossed your mind

#43
gonzalo said on March 8, 2017 at 12:33 p.m.

Yeah, and the thing is that whip isn't even her real name. It's a military code name. Her name is Seirah. She looks great in this one.

#44
chansen said on March 8, 2017 at 12:35 p.m.

#47
JustSTFU said on March 8, 2017 at 12:49 p.m.

Balance the characters so we are not forced to use a few selected characters to win when some others are useless. In a 3 man team everyone has to be good or it can become lob sided easy.

Saying this cuz I love the franchise and want to keep playing it. But when your game is not balanced nobody will want to play and when nobody plays, there is no incentive to keep playing it even if I love it.

#48
theTENTH said on March 8, 2017 at 12:51 p.m.

I don't take leak lists seriously but wasn't the launch roster leaked also? Playing along: Shingo, KRIZALID yay yay/Yashiro, Lee, Heidern, Jhun, Yamazaki and Kasumi *-*

#61
MightyAfro said on March 8, 2017 at 1:44 p.m.

It's definitely four. Biggest clue is in the official dlc announcement where they first showed the sillouettes. There's a certain beat that plays every time they did a close up of a character. You can hear 4 beats and see it zoom in 4 times.

As for whip. Like someone said, she looks really good in 3d!

#62
BumbleBee said on March 8, 2017 at 1:49 p.m.

What did i tell you ? Identified her, the moment i saw the silhouette. Rather obvious. The trailer is sick.

#63

Yaaasssss! She was the first character i ever mained with in the series back in the Saturn as a kid. Slay, Whip, slay.

I DOUBT that list, cuz..

SNK was not clear before about no Yashiro, Shermie and Chris?

where is the source of that?

And well, I'd love to see Vanessa, Shingo, Yamazaki and Mary, but i like more the move set of Mr Karate than Takuma

actually in Alpha2 Rolento has helpers that sets up the hook.

Pasco said on March 8, 2017 at 2:27 p.m.

No, but thanks for the information you (and others) provided about her history. I never got into the backstories of the characters of KoF. I much prefer Seirah or Muchiko. With a name like 'Whip' is makes her sound like some enemy character walking around in a Beat-em-up like Final Fight or Streets of Rage.

This is the nature of a game with a large roster, and this is how KOF has always been.

Whip it good.

This is false. SNK is filled with the typical female designs. Do delude yourself.

#77
SnakeX said on March 8, 2017 at 3:19 p.m.

Whip is a good addition to the roster for sure.

#78
Dimensional said on March 8, 2017 at 3:25 p.m.

Not one I was really hoping for but she looks good not sure if I will ever really end up using her but I do like the look of her moves.

Still hoping for Vanessa personally.

#79
CODYYY said on March 8, 2017 at 3:30 p.m.

she looks really good. i have no attachment to KOF so they can put in any character as long as they look good. I would try this character out for sure.

#80
FightDirty said on March 8, 2017 at 3:35 p.m.

Looks really nice. I'll have to test her out when she's added to the roster. Seems like a lot of fun.

#81
Galaxy said on March 8, 2017 at 3:38 p.m.

I'm hoping for Shingo and vanessa it's been to long. I heard a rumor of Shingo finally having his own flame, how cool would that be? Glad to see Whip still matters, she's been gone a little while now.

#82
Peculiarly_Natural said on March 8, 2017 at 3:42 p.m.

Pretty much expected at this point,Whip being one of the silhouettes in the DLC image.This DLC didn't even have to happen with a base roster of 50 characters.So I'm good with her inclusion.Hopefully the remaining DLC characters are what some are speculating.

Also I'm loving the tucking the hair behind her ear in one of Whip's supers,it's a nice touch.

#83
Galaxy said on March 8, 2017 at 3:44 p.m.

King, Yuri, Athena, and almost every other female character EXCEPT Mai is covered; they might be hot, but not in that DOA way. No delusions here.

#84
ScarletTerror said on March 8, 2017 at 4:01 p.m.

So a cross-dresser, a karate-girl, and a pop-star. Are you new to SNK games? The original Athena wore nothing but a bikini, Angel if you think about it more than a second. "Almost every other character" like every other fighting game out there. SNK is nothing counter to female game designs, especially in fighting games.

#85
Galaxy said on March 8, 2017 at 4:03 p.m.

I got a feeling it's only 3, and the one in the back is Vanessa, and that's either Shingo (which i'm leaning towards) or Yamazaki
