SNK's latest title in the KOF series, "THE KING OF FIGHTERS X V" (KOF XV), is scheduled for release within 2021.
Since the beginning of 2021, new trailers have been released almost every week, and they have met the expectations of the fans. That's our SNK!
So far, character trailers have been released for "Shun-Ei" and "Ming-Tian-Kun," and the next one will be for "Tan Fu-Lu"? Is "Kyo Kusanagi" next? There was a lot of speculation, but on January 28, 2021 (Thursday), a new character trailer was released!
One of the most popular characters in the series, "Benimaru Nikaido," has joined the game!
The character trailer released this time is "Benimaru Nikaido," a regular in the KOF series and one of the most popular characters in the series!
The character design was revealed when KOF XV was announced, and he also appeared in the official trailer for KOF XV, so we knew he would be joining the series, but we didn't expect the announcement to come at this time !
Benimaru is a narcissistic character with a stylish fighting style and appearance to match. He is popular for his narcissistic characterization, his appearance to match, and his stylish fighting style, as well as his numerous techniques to manipulate lightning.
The first time I played '94 in the arcade, I was amazed by his " vacuum one-handed pawns ".
In the trailer, you can see the well-known special moves such as the " Raito Fist," the " Rebound Three-Step Kick," and the " Raikouken," but I can't wait to see what other stylish special moves are available!
The first team has also been announced!
The KOF series is basically a three-player team game.
Even with the large number of unique characters in the series, it will be interesting to see how the team composition will reflect the relationships between the characters, as it will also play a role in the story.
We were especially anxious to see what would happen in this title, as it will be a complete change of formation from the previous title, and now the first KOF XV team has been revealed!
Shun'ei" and "Mingtian-kun", whose character trailers have already been released, and "Benimaru Nikaido", whose trailer has just been released, will be joining the " Hero Team "!
The Chinese team of the previous title lost "Tang Fu Lou" and Benimaru joined the team. They can be said to be the heroes of this year's tournament.
Apparently, he was forced by his rival and close friend Kyo Kusanagi to take care of Shun-Yei and Ming-Tian-Kun in this tournament.
If Benimaru is out of the team, what will happen to Kyo's team and will Mr. Tan appear?
Along with the announcement of the "Hero Team", SNK JAPAN held a " Hero Team Participation Memorial Campaign " on their official Twitter page to win autographs from the voice actors!
