As a Chinese student, allow me to introduce the culture of this outfit: IDIOCY. The character's outfit completely showed a trend called FEI ZHU LIU (fay-ju-li-ou), which was a despised pop culture. Usually teenagers or some adults with little fashion sense or low self-esteem choose this kind of outfit to shout out how FASHIONABLE they are. The worse part is that they truly believe this kind out unsubtle outfits represent Punk+Rock & Roll+Gothic+Young+Futuristic+Japanese animated vibe.In the early 2000s, FEI ZHU LIU becomes a popular trend among those with low education experience and people who want to look chic but don't want to spend corresponding time or money doing that. This trend is cheap and messy, but has been adopted to groups of people who cannot understand fashion or themselves. I really hope I can post pictures in the comment to show how cringy it is.
a random chinese user quite literally made an ENTIRE KOF XIII shaded spriteset in mugen.
Well, Shun'ei is a cute anime boy, so he is bound to be loved by a specific crowd.
eyup.now if only they didnt make his goddamn hair green and not give him a purple tie.if they made his color palette a little more uniform id like it alot more.

This whole "appeal to China" argument doesn't really work if people in the west also like it, and cute anime characters appeal to weebs all over the world. If KoF XIV had been nothing but anime boys as new characters, I could see the argument about being generic mobile design, but one character? Nah.
Game looks good, hopefully they add Chizuru and B. Jenet.
Shingo is like, the single most requested character to return. But realistically speaking he has low chances of returning, if only because there isn't a team he could fit in, and I highly doubt they'd remove Daimon for what is basically a moveset clone of Kyo.
Or put Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru on a team
Shingo could be on a team of SNK fans like himself, Alice and a female Iori.

Besides, Kyo and Benimaru are shown together in a cutscene on the first trailer, which more or less spells they're on the same team.
