Overview

The King of Fighters XV (also stylized as KOF XV) is a 2.5D tag-team fighting game in development by SNK, with a planned release by SNK for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 17, 2022.

The fifteenth main installment of the King of Fighters series (and the sequel to The King of Fighters XIV), The King of Fighters XV builds on the predecessor's switch to 3D rendering with 2D gameplay with new cel-shading (reminiscent of their recent fighting game Samurai Shodown), new game mechanics (including the "Shatter Strike" counter-attack and a revamped MAX Mode), a new game mode ("Draft VS", where each player takes turns choosing characters and cannot choose the same one) and various roster changes.

The game's story continues the series' fourth major story arc, as the defeat of the mysterious entity known as "Verse" causes souls trapped inside it to release and become resurrected throughout the world, including former protagonist Ash Crimson (whose death formed the entity), the antagonistic being Orochi (which is quickly sealed by the three "sacred treasures" Chizuru, Kyo, and Iori), and three of Orochi's followers (Yashiro, Shermie, and Chris). A new King of Fighters tournament is held, with yet another mysterious sponsor and yet another mysterious calamity.

Characters

The game is planned to have 39 playable characters at launch, split into 13 teams, with numerous characters added as DLC. As the character reveal is done over time, this list is currently incomplete.

Returning from earlier entries in the series include Chizuru, Ash, and the members of Team Orochi.

Characters who are revealed but have no known team affiliation include Kukri, Whip, and Ángel.
