SNK's latest title in the KOF series, "THE KING OF FIGHTERS X V" (KOF XV), is scheduled for release in the spring of 2022.
In the last issue, it was announced that Athena Asamiya, a valuable character that has existed since before the NEOGEO, would be joining the series, and that she would form a " Super Heroine Team " with the previously announced "Yuri Sakazaki" and "Mai Shiranui". The three heroines representing SNK will form the "Super Heroine Team".
The three heroines representing SNK formed a team worthy of the name "Super Heroine".
We were looking forward to seeing what characters would join the team next, and on August 12, 2021 (Thursday), a new character trailer was released!
The mastermind of the previous KOF XIV game is joining the fray!
It's a cosmic coup! Antonov!
The character trailer for " Antonov ", the boss character and mastermind of the previous KOF XIV game, has been released!
He was a Russian millionaire who claimed to be the first KOF champion, but he lost his position after the last KOF. He is now back in the game to make a comeback!
The belt design is simpler than the previous one, but his hair seems to have grown longer, and he is more flashy with sunglasses, a hat, a towel around his neck, and arm covers.
The reason for this will be explained later !
In the previous game, "Antonov" was a boss character, so he was not part of a team in the Story Mode team, but participated in the game by himself.
Like all the bosses in the KOF series, Antonov was a character with high attack power and high physical strength instead of a single player. I can't understand why it is adjusted when you use it yourself!
Having said that, the striking moves he delivers from his large stature are powerful!
From the trailer released, it looks like he is going to be a powerful wrestler with a strong wrestling style!
Wrestling organization hits KOF!
As announced at the beginning of the "Antonov" character trailer, a new team has been announced!
Antonov", " Ramon ", and " King of Dinosaurs " will form the " G.A.W. Team "!
G.A.W." stands for "GALAXY ANTON WRESTLING," a professional wrestling organization founded by the disgraced "Antonov.
Since he is the president of a wrestling organization, he is more flamboyantly dressed than in the previous work, isn't he?
The three wrestlers, "Ramon," a lucha doll, and the mysterious villainous masked wrestler "King of Dinosaurs," are back on the KOF stage, or rather, in the ring!
The team has been announced, which means that the annual " G.A.W. Team Entry Memorial Campaign " will be held!
One autograph from each of Noriyoshi Katsunuma (Ramon) ,Moriyuki Hishida (Antonov) , andHikaru Hanada (King of Dinosaurs) will be given away by drawing among the campaign participants.
Moriyuki Hishida's autograph has an illustration of Antonov on it, so cute!
To participate, just follow SNK JAPAN official Twitter(@SNKPofficial_jp ) and retweet the campaign tweet below!
The deadline is Wednesday, August 25, 2021, so retweet now!
No more floating characters!
With the entry of "Antonov" and the formation of the "G.A.W. Team", 27 characters and 9 teams have been announced.
Until now, there were some characters whose teams had not been announced, so we could predict who would be next, but now we can't predict who will be announced next!
Personally, I think that "K'", who appeared in the first official trailer but has not been announced yet, is a suspect.
But we won't know until it is actually announced! Let's wait for more information!
