Meet Oswald the newest addition to, the ever-growing cast of characters for SNK’s King of Fighter’s XIV, this character was revealed on January 26th at the SNK booth at EVO Japan he was a playable character for the first two days of EVO Japan 2018. Oswald is a card dealing crook (he’s a professional hitman) but a great fighter who uses his cunning martial arts to take out his opponents.

Oswald fights with his slashing playing cards akin to knives, using a unique fighting style named after Karnöffel; his suit moves (Spade, Diamond, Club and Heart) can all be uniquely chained-together as a focal point of his gameplay. Many fans have noted that Oswald’s card-based fighting style is remarkably similar to X-Men’s Gambit(this comparison is most obvious between Oswald’s Joker LDM and Gambit’s Royal Flush super). Oswald even has a super named Royal Flush, but is done differently from Gambit’s version.
