Atlus and SNK have released a new trailer for The King of Fighters XIV, this time showing off Team South America. This team has a good blend of styles and looks like it will play well. Being a fan of boxers, I will definitely be checking out Nelson.
The agile members of Team South America — Bandeiras Hattori, Zarina, and Nelson
— are focusing their energy towards fighting anyone and everyone in THE KING OF
FIGHTERS XIV Tournament!
Even though each member of Team South America are fighting for different reasons,
they’ve banded together to help each other out. First off, Bandeiras Hattori is
a self-trained ninja who practices the legitimately dangerous art of, uh, Brazilian
ninjutsu (not to be confused with Brazilian jiu-jitsu!). Basically, Bandeiras is
a 100% certified Brazilian ninja who wants to win the tournament to earn respect
and get students for his dojo. Next up is Zarina, the savior of rain forests! She
wants to raise money and awareness for the environment, and has zero issues beating
up competitors in the name of nature. Zarina will dazzle opponents with her acrobatic
Capoeira fighting style and is a strong member of this team. Oh, she’s also bringing
along her adorable toucan friend Coco. Lastly, there’s Nelson, the boxing prodigy
who wants to punch his way to the top in order to raise money for a loved one. He
lost one of his arms in an accident, but was lucky enough to receive a mysterious
cybernetic replacement that you could say gives him the upper hand during fights.
With his fancy footwork and nasty hooks, Nelson will be a difficult opponent for

Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars will be tomorrow’s Wii U Virtual Console game. The critically acclaimed Square Enix and Nintendo collaboration was the first of the Mario RPG games and is one of the all time greatest SNES games.
Galaxy Trail, the developers of Freedom Planet have announced that the game has sold a quarter million copies on Wii U and Steam combined. This is very good news for the game as it is amazing.

We are pleased to announce that Freedom Planet has sold a quarter million copies on Steam and Wii U combined! Thank you so much everyone! ????????
The developers of Nefarious have released a new trailer for the game. Nefarious is a twist on classic platformers and adventure games, being a game where the goal is to kidnap the princess and fight off the heroes. The game looks amazing, with a great art style and fun gameplay and is one I personally cannot wait to play. Nefarious releases this coming January.
Capcom has released a new trailer for Street Fighter V, showing off the DLC character Balrog. The Boxer is back with some flashy new moves and techniques that look amazing. Also cameoing in this trailer is Juri and Urien.
Balrog will release this Friday along with Ibuki and the June update
LJN is a notorious name among gamers. The company put out so many games of questionable quality that they are synonymous with bad NES games. But not everyone hates their games, and some even argue they are good. This is the basis for Matt Ezero’s youtube series, The LJN Defender. Matt feels LJN games get a bad rap and wants people to take a second look at them. This is a really unique thing and his videos are great. Matt really goes all out to make his argument for why some LJN games are not all that bad. He was greatly inspired to do this after replaying some LJN games such as Wolverine on the NES. Matt also reviews retro games and rom hacks and now romhacker PACNSAKDAVE has decided to give matt his own adventure ala Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures.
The game is a rom hack of Wolverine but with numerous changes, and starring the LJN Defender himself. The game stars Matt, the Defender who while playing Wolverine, is zapped into the game along with a box of LJN games. The resulting fusion creates a new game where the Defender must fight through a world inhabited by various characters and objects from LJN games, including the Karate Kid, Back to The Future and The Ultimate Warrior (Matt’s favourite wrestler). You can interact with other characters such as Spider-man and can get help from Hulk Hogan himself (replacing Havok from the original game). The Berserker rage feature is still here, but the lives have been increased from two to eight. Lastly the strength move special does not drain health from the meter. In other worse this is a new game based on the original game but redesigned just enough for modern gamers and to make this more accessible.
Every game needs a villain, and replacing Sabretooth from Wolverine is the man who hates LJN as much as the Defender likes them, The Angry Video Game Nerd himself. The Nerd and his right hand man have set up a murder world for the Defender to fight through, and honestly, I think this is the perfect setup. LJN’s arch nemesis vs their biggest advocate. It just makes so much sense.
The controls are spot on, even more than in the original game, and the great soundtrack is still there. This is something very much worth checking out. I think others will have as much fun as I did.
I played this on the PC and my controller worked great (although keyboard controls are possible), however PACNSACDAVE also is selling actual NES carts of the game here If you want the PC Version then it is free here. This is not an infomercial for the game, and I am not being paid to shill it. I simply want people to know all the options they have for playing this game.
You can see a video of The LJN Defender discussing the game here (Spoilers Included)
Atlus and SNK have released a new trailer for The King of Fighters XIV, this time showing off Team Official Invitation. The characters look amazing especially Kukri and we cannot wait to play the game.
From an Atlus PR Release
Team Official Invitation is a unique team because they’re comprised entirely of
new characters to the KOF series! They were also personally invited by the mysterious
billionaire Antonov, host of THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament, because they’re
the best of the best of the best.
So what does a crack team of ultimate fighters look like? First up is Sylvie, a
former member of the shadowy NESTS organization, whose modified body allows her
to unleash electrical attacks on opponents. While those powers are deadly on their
own, what makes her so dangerous is the fact that she’s as nutty as a fruitcake.
Apologies, they call that “being quirky” nowadays right? Just look at her crazy
eyeball-themed outfit and completely unpredictable attacks! Next up is Kukri, the
mysterious hooded underground fighter whose gritty personality compliments his ability
to wield sand. I mean, just imagine fighting someone who constantly attacks with
pocket sand and multiply that by a thousand to get Kukri. Lastly, we’ve got the
magnificent Mian who turns every fight into a performance worthy of the Chinese
Opera. She’s skilled at Bian Lian — the art of face-changing — and her attacks
involve a lot of graceful and vigorous dance moves.
Will the other teams have a response to the unorthodox style of Team Official
