Coming hot off the heels of Najd’s reveal a couple weeks ago, SNK and Atlus finally took the veil off of the final silhouette for this year’s King of Fighters XIV character DLC, and it’s someone fans have been clamoring for for awhile.
In a blog post from SNK’s Yasuyuki Oda on the official PlayStation blog, it was revealed that Blue Mary is set to make her long-awaited return next week, alongside Heidern, Oswald, and the aforementioned Najd, when KOFXIV‘s 3.00 patch goes live on April 12th. Initially debuting in Fatal Fury 3, Blue Mary’s popularity in that series led to her making her King of Fighters debut in KOF ’97, where she’d been a mainstay up until the series’ leap to the PS3. While she made cameo appearances in XIII and XIV‘s story modes, this is her first playable appearance since The King of Fighters XI on PlayStation 2.
While I’m a little sad the final character wasn’t someone like Ash or Elisabeth, Mary looks as fun as ever in the trailer above, and definitely the most interesting of the returning characters in this pack. Anyone else excited to pick her back up? Let us know in the comments below!
