SNK announced at Gamescom Opening Night Live that King of Fighters 15 will open in the new year in February. Recently a trailer was unveiled to illuminate the various war machines, different routes and other features that accompany the 39 soldiers. Check it out below.
Some of the new combat equipment include Shatter Strike, a parry-esque action to defend against and counter enemy attacks; Max Mode for adding damage and “unlocking” one possible action; Max Mode (Fast) for canceling attacks and expanding combos; and a wide variety of special activities, including the release of Climax Super Special Moves. We also get a look at Story Mode which features a new KOF cycle with a “sleepless power” that wakes up. Sooner or later, the World is dependent on destruction and our heroes must intervene.
Other options include Internet Essentials (there is a Rollback Netcode in the launch) and a wide range of options from Classification, Physical and Compatibility Rooms to the Training and Rehabilitation line. Trial Mode also returns, testing one’s skill and ability in chain saws. A Gallery with a variety of art genres to open, the DJ Station and over 300 songs from the entire series, and even an animated shortcut are also recommended.
SNK also confirmed the Deluxe Edition which features the main game and two new teams of three DLC characters each. Those who pre -booked on consoles will also receive three days early admission. The King of Heroes 15 is out on February 17th 2022 for Xbox Series X / S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
