The next The King of Fighters XIV trailer from SNK features the returning heroes of Southtown, Team Fatal Fury.
The Fatal Fury team?named after the Neo Geo series in which its members appeared?is American Terry Bogard, his brother Andy, and Japanese Muay Thai champion, Joe Higashi. The trio has more or less been part of the King of Fighters series since its inception, so the inclusion should come as no surprise. The trailer shows a spate of familiar and tweaked move sets from the fighters, including Terry’s Burning Knuckle and Joe’s Hurricane Upper.
The King of Fighters XIV page on SNK’s site also offers a small bio for each member of the team, included below:
- Terry Bogard: Terry joined the world of martial arts and combat sports in order to avenge the death of Jeff Bogard, his adoptive father who was murdered by the evil Geese Howard. Always cheerful and ready to help others, Terry is adored by the children of Southtown as a hero.
- Andy Bogard: Andy decided to learn the traditional martial art of Koppou and Shiranui ninjutsu in order to defeat Geese Howard, the one who assassinated his adoptive father Jeff Bogard. Quiet and polite, Andy always shows respect to his opponents. He is now in a relationship with the beautiful Mai Shiranui.
- Joe Higashi: Joe left his native Japan in his youth to become the greatest champion of Muay Thai of all time. Jovial and energetic by nature, Joe is always looking for fights and training. He met the Bogard Brothers one day in Southtown, and their friendship has grown stronger over the years
