The King of Fighters 15: SNK Announces First All-New Character-Tokyo Game Show 2021

SNK has announced the first new character for The King of Fighters XV. This new fighter, A young woman named IslaIs the “rival” of Shun’ei, the hero of The King of Fighters XIV.

Revealed in Special video program On the first day of the Tokyo Game Show 2021, Isla’s most striking feature is a pair of “phantom hands” that are always floating beside her. This makes sense for Shunei’s rival, famous for his own oversized phantom hand, but his hand only deploys during certain moves. Isla’s “hands” are close to human size and are always visible. Most of her attacks take advantage of them, giving her a series of long-distance trips. In that sense, Isla is very similar to Bath, the huge last boss of KOF XIV. Bath also had a glowing ghostly gauntlet next to him.

Will Verse return to KOF XV? Although SNK doesn’t say, Isla was the first fully-introduced, completely original character in the game, and she made a prominent appearance in a trailer showing various characters hanging out in Tokyo. “The story revolves around Isla and Shunei, so both play a big role,” said Eisuke Ogura, creative director of KOFXV.

For the rest of the lineup, SNK has promised that KOF XV will feature 39 characters divided into 13 teams. Thirty of them have been officially released so far (31 in Heidern on the poster).

Early purchases also include Terry Bogard’s free DLC costume based on the look of Fatal Fury MARK OF THE WOLVE. If purchased digitally, you’ll get Leona’s free costume based on her classic outfits in the 90’s KOF games.

SNK has already announced that the King of Fighters XV will feature an online match rollback net code, but today the rollback net code will be part of a “major update” on Steam’s King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate. It was revealed that it will also appear in the Match Final Edition. winter. Yasuyuki Oda, chief producer of KOF XV, said the company will soon be in beta testing and invited players.
