SNK's latest title in the KOF series, "THE KING OF FIGHTERS X V" (hereafter KOF XV), is scheduled for release in the spring of 2022.
Since the game will be developed on multiple platforms, many people will be able to play it in their current environment without having to prepare a new environment for KOF XV, so it is likely to have the highest playing population in the series.
The last time a trailer was released, the mysterious masked wrestler " King of Dinosaurs " was announced as an entry in the series.
Before that, it was "Ramon" who teamed up with "King of Dinosaurs" in the previous KOF XIV, and many expected that "Angel" would be announced next to form a Mexican team, but SNK But there was no way SNK would make such a straightforward announcement!
On Friday, July 30, 2021, a new character trailer will be released!
The announcement of the entry of a female character who has been a KOF fan favorite!
Athena, I'm coming! Athena Asamiya" has entered the game!
This time, a character trailer has been released for "Athena Asamiya ", one of SNK's most popular female characters!
She is one of the most popular female characters in the KOF series, so we knew she would be joining the series, but now she has been officially announced.
She was the main character in "Psycho Soldier" released by SNK in 1987, and like Ralph and Clark, she is one of the few characters that existed before Neo-Geo and is still active today. Shi Fist Chong is the 2nd character in "Psycho Soldier".
He has participated in the KOF series since the first game in 1994, and he is the only character who has been a regular participant in all of the games, including the "Gaiden" series.
He is also a character whose hairstyle and clothes change dramatically depending on the game, so he is always a focus of attention.
In this work, she wears a bob cut close to her '99 hair style, a shoulder-length top, and short shorts, which is quite cute.
The CV also changes from work to work for Athena, but these days it's probably already her image! Haruna Ikezawa!
Athena Asamiya is a character who fights using psychic powers called " psycho power " and Chinese martial arts.
Her special moves include the flying " Psycho Ball," the air-to-air " Psycho Sword," the aerial " Phoenix Arrow," and the " Psycho Reflector," which can bounce flying props back. He is a character that is easy to use.
Although her firepower may seem a little low in previous works, her cuteness more than makes up for it.
New team of heroines announced!
At the end of the character trailer for "Athena Asamiya," a new team was announced!
Mai Shiranui," "Yuri Sakazaki," and "Athena Asamiya" will make up the " Super Heroine Team," a team that has not been formed for a long time after the announcement of their participation in the game! This is the first time these three have formed a team!
Mai Shiranui, the heroine of FATAL FURY, Yuri Sakazaki, the heroine of Fist of the Dragon and Tiger, and Athena Asamiya, the heroine of Psycho Soldier, are the three who can call themselves the "Super Heroines"!
Now that the team has been announced, the " Super Heroine Team Entry Memorial Campaign " will be held!
Among the campaign participants, there will be a drawing for autographs from Ami Koshimizu (Mai Shiranui) ,Haruna Ikezawa (Athena Asamiya) , andAi Kakuma (Yuri Sakazaki).

The deadline is August 12, 2021 (Thursday ), so retweet now!
Currently 26 characters and 8 teams are open to the public!
The 26 characters announced to participate in "Asamiya Athena" this time are 26 characters. There are also 8 teams in the "Super Heroine Team".
It is a relief that "Mai Shiranui" and "Yuri Sakazaki", whose teams had not been announced for a long time, have formed a team, and we are looking forward to seeing what characters will join the game!
It will be interesting to see if the "Psycho Soldier Team" will be formed without Athena.
Will it be a character who teams up with "Ramon" or "King of Dinosaurs" next? Or will it be a completely new character? Let's wait for more information!
