Last month, SNK announced that it would be hosting a “World Championship” for King of Fighters XIV, scheduled to take place sometime in 2017. The company is looking to establish an annual tour for its latest installment, which lead many to wonder when qualifiers would take place.
Today we have an answer. Canada Cup revealed in a recent tweet that this year’s event has been appointed as a world championship qualifier. Traditionally, Canada Cup is known to host high-level players from all across the globe.
The winner will be flown to the KOFXIV World Championships. The location remains under wraps, though those details are bound to emerge as we draw closer to the end of the year.
