If you visit the SNK booth on April 1, 2023 (Saturday ), the second day of the event, you will receive a " KOF XV Original Poster " featuring an illustration by Tomohiro Nakata, the main designer of KOF XV! I'm curious to see what the design will be, but it seems that it will be a surprise on the day of the event or is still a secret at this point. Be aware that the number of posters is limited, so only the first 1,000 people to arrive will receive one! Since the SNK booth is inevitably crowded, it would be better to arrive early. Let's head to the SNK booth first on Saturday, April 1, 2023!

Kim Kak Hwan" will be available for preview!

Kim Kwak Hwan" preview!

On the last day of the event, April 2, 2023 (Sunday), there will be an advanced test play of " Kim Kaffan," which will be released in KOF XV in the spring of 2023! Since "Kim Kaffan" is a regular character in KOF, many people have been waiting for his release, so we are very happy to be able to play him ahead of others, and the fact that he is ready to play at the level of "EVO Japan 2023" means that we can assume that he will be released soon. If the game is ready to be played, it seems safe to assume that the distribution will be close at the EVO Japan 2023! We expect that the advance play corner will be quite crowded, so please come early!

Clear file giveaway on April 2nd!

"KOF XVオリジナルポクリアファイル"プレゼント!

Following the original poster on April 1 (Sat.), there will be another gift for visitors on April 2 (Sun.). The " KOF XV Original Clear File, " featuring an illustration by Tomohiro Nakata, will be given away as a present! This is also limited to the first 1,000 people who arrive, and since there will be a chance to try out "Kim Kak Hwan," there is a good chance it will run out quickly. It looks like the SNK booth will be the first stop every day at EVO Japan 2023.

There are many other events in the works!

The SNK booth is still full of events at this stage, but more events are being planned! More information will be announced on SNK's official Twitter account (@SNKPofficial_jp), so don't forget to check it out!
