[UPDATED] Meet Sylvie Paula Paula, the first “new” King Of Fighters XIV character
PlayStation and SNK has just released the latest trailer to King of Fighters XIV and it includes the first officially new character, Sylvie Paula Paula.
Details pertaining to Sylvie are currently unknown, but she seems to be using electromagnetism for her power set. It is also quite notable that she uses yellow-colored effects as compared to series regular Benimaru Nikaido’s blue color. Her character design and name clearly draws inspiration from popular Japanese idol Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Sylvie has also drawn comparison to Tekken 7’s Lucky Chloe due to the outlandish character design.
Aside from Sylvie, the trailer also revealed the inclusion of Kim Kaphwan and Vice into the game. The trailer also revealed two new stages. You can view the full trailer below, which includes clips from other revealed characters such as Iori Yagami, Kyo Kusanagi, Terry Bogard, Choi Bounge, Tung Fu Rue, K’, Kula Diamond, Billy Kane and more:
Sylvie is the first character of 13 rumored new characters for King of Fighters XIV as seen in the roster leak below. (Disclaimer: King of Dinosaurs would technically be the first, however everyone knows that’s just Tizoc in a different gimmick.)
[UPDATE] According to the PlayStation Asia blog, Sylvie is a remnant of the NESTS cartel, the antagonists of the years ’99-2001. After the cartel’s downfall, she has been participating in underground fight events. This is where the current KOF organizer scouted her and gave her an invitation to this year’s KOF.
King of Fighters XIV is scheduled to be released later this year.
