The King of Fighters XV: Teaser gives clues to key characters

Shun'ei, Benimaru Nikaido and Kyo Kusanagi are the three key characters who return with The King of Fighters XV. But that's not the only information that producer Yasuyuki Oda and creative director Eisuke Ogura mention: It is now known that Shun'ei is the main character of King of Fighters XV. The cool guy with the headphones only premiered in King of Fighters XIV.

Shun'ei will be given new extra moves, that's been clear since the teaser was published. In addition, the character looks even cooler in the new offshoot. "We can't wait for you to see him in action!" SNK's two creative minds are delighted. Of course, this also gives an indication of the story, which takes place after the events of The King of Fighters XIV.

The teaser for the new brawl game also shows performances by K' and Leona, so both will be part of the lin-up. There are no gameplay details, but KOF creative director Ogura mentioned that the team fights will be significantly different from the predecessor. Exactly what that means remains unclear.

It is still uncertain on which platform The King of Fighters XV will appear. There is also neither a release date nor a rough release period. However, it is likely that King of Fighters XV will be released in 2021.

The history of The King of Fighters dates back to the mid-2004s. At that time, the offshoots appeared annually, only in 2016 did SNK announce that titles in The King of Fighters series would no longer appear on an annual basis. There were four years between Part XI and XII, while XIII was published the following year. The last offshoot, The King of Fighters XIV, was launched in 2021. Should the new part of the series actually appear in XNUMX, fans would have to wait around five years for a sequel.
