Heroines of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round and King of Fighters XIV Join in Lovely Wallpapers

Kasumi, Mai Shiranui, Marie Rose and Kula Diamond stand back-to-back to give you a morning smile.

June 16, 2017

Koei Tecmo and SNK are celebrating together the launch on Steam of The King of Fighter XIV and 8 million downloads for Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.

An interesting effect of the Japanese culture of respect even among rivals, is that local developers love their crossovers, they’re offering as a gift to their fans two wallpapers where the two universes collide, one with Kasumi and Mai Shiranui, and the other with Marie Rose and Kula Diamond.

They’re also giving away 20 packages with steam keys for both games on Twitter, but this is just for Japan.

This is certainly not the first time in which the two franchises cross over. Mai Shiranui has actually been made playable in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round since last September, alongside a batch of The King of Fighters costumes.

You can enjoy the wallpapers below, in a few different sizes to fit your favorite devices. This kind of event is normally available only for a limited time, so we’re going to preserve them for the posterity.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
