Rock Howard Is Joining The King Of Fighters XIV!
Rock Howard will be making its way to The King Of Fighters XIV as a new DLC character! As the main character for Garou: Mark Of The Wolves, Rock Howard is a very important staple of the Fatal Fury universe, and a welcome addition to the latest entry of The King of Fighters. Come check out a new trailer showcasing the beloved fighter below!
Yasuyuki Oda, Producer for The King of Fighters XIV, had this to say:
Rock Howard made his debut in the last chapter of the Fatal Fury series, Garou: Mark Of The Wolves, and this release will mark his first appearance in a mainline KOF title. He is the estranged son of crime lord Geese Howard, having been adopted and raised by Terry Bogard from a young age. His fighting style is a unique mix of both Terry and Geeseâ€™s styles and he even boasts his own variations on some of their iconic moves, such as Geeseâ€™s Raging Storm and Terryâ€™s Buster Wolf. His Crack Counter, for example, combines the reversal techniques from Geeseâ€™s Aikijutsu moves with Terryâ€™s Crack Shoot attack.
This melding of styles results in a well-rounded fighter. He sacrifices both Geeseâ€™s dominating power and Terryâ€™s simple and direct style for speed and versatility, creating a unique approach that stands on its own despite borrowing heavily from two disparate fighters.
