EVO 2017: The King of Fighters 14 Tournament Puts $14,000 Up For Grabs

Atlus and SNK will split the prize pool between the top three winners.


To celebrate The King of Fighters 14's debut at EVO 2017, the world's largest fighting-game tournament, SNK and Atlus are offering a prize pot of $14,000 to be split between the top three winners. First place in the King of Fighters 14 competition will receive $8,000. The player who comes in second will get $4,000, and third place will take home $2,000.

"With more than 50 fighters and 3D graphics for the first time in the main series," reads a press release sent to Shacknews, "fans will be able to experience the extraordinary, fierce talent of The King of Fighters 14's top players as the game debuts at the community's most prominent competition."

The King of Fighters 14 is one in a wide selection of games in which the top players of the world will be competing during this year's EVO, held from July 14-16 in Las Vegas. Outside of mainstays such as Street Fighter 5 and Super Smash Bros. Melee, Nintendo is promoting this fall's Pokken Tournament DX at its booth, where attendees can stop by to sign up to receive exclusive tips and enter for a chance to win a Switch console.
