you're a PS4 Pro owner, pop in that copy of King of Fighters XIV
for further graphical improvements after updating to Version 1.10!
KOF XIV is officially the first fighting game to feature PS4 Pro
Support. While the specifics of the PS4 Pro enhancements aren't fully
detailed, SNK Corporation confirmed PS4 Pro Support in their full patch
notes for Ver. 1.10. Here's the link to SNK's full English patch
notes (PDF file) for Version 1.10. Below is the excerpt that lists the
Playstation 4 Pro graphic improvements.
This article will be updated
if and when more details on PS4 Pro enhancements for KOF XIV become
available. Until then, here are my early impressions of The King of
Fighters XIV running on PS4 Pro.
Webmaster Comment: I adopted a PS4 Pro on Cyber Monday 2016 (scoring it for a
reasonably discounted $339). The enhancements to games such as Final
Fantasy XV and Uncharted 4 are very very noticeable, if not
breathtaking, when running in 4K with HDR turned on. After
personally comparing KOF XIV's graphics on vanilla PS4 with
the game running on PS4 Pro, I can say that the improvements are
more subtle than the games previously mentioned... but they're
Overall, the resolution seems cleaner and better suited for a 4K
TV. Something about the colors, the crispness of the backgrounds,
and the character models (with their new and improved shaders
& textures) seem to "pop" just a bit more on PS4
Pro. No, it's not a "total makeover" on Pro, and since the game
looks significantly improved on both PS4 and PS4 Pro after the
Version 1.10 update, it's difficult to decipher all the subtle differences on
"Day 1". On that note, it'd be interesting seeing a
proper comparison video...
Anyhow, I did take these screen captures via PS4 Pro for quick
reference. The screenshots below are unedited and in their original
resolution (click thumbnail for full size).
Once again... CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to SNK for releasing
such a hearty free update for The King of Fighters XIV.
This is the type of passionate game development we as gamers
should praise, folks. ~TFG
And yes, I will soon be
updating TFG's full review
of The King of Fighters XIV to reflect version 1.10's upgrades.
(I recently did the same for SFV's updates.)
In related news, a bug has been discovered in the version 1.10 resulting
in possible disconnections from online battles. Thankfully, SNK is already working
on a fix. Below is SNK's official statement on the matter:
is an issue where the game will consider the player to have
disconnected from an online battle if they change the display
settings for "Icon", "Title" or "Rank
Match Fight Record" on "MY PROFILE" screen.
We are currently looking into it and hope to have a fix as soon as
possible. Because this will affect win rates and disconnect
penalties, please refrain from making any changes on the "MY
We are also investigating into any other issues with this patch
and will notify everyone once our investigation is complete.
We apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your patience as we
prepare another patch to solve these issues.
