While the announcement did not mention which character, a joker card hints that it is none other that the card wielding master, Oswald.
Oswald’s only playable appearance in The King Of Fighters Series was in KOFXI, where he joined Ash and Shen Woo to form the new hero team.
He is a professional hitman whose true motives are shrouded in Mystery.
The King Of Fighters XIV Ver 3.0 will probably have more than just a DLC character to look up for. For starters, KOf producer Oda san had previously announced the inclusion of a brand new Saudi female character, Najd, that was created by a fan. We should probably also expect new stages, and balance patches.
