SNK's latest title in the KOF series, " THE K ING OF FIGHTERS X V" (KOF XV), is scheduled for release within the year 2021.
With introduction trailers for new characters being released almost every week, I'm sure many of you find it a welcome relief on Thursdays, when the fatigue of the week begins to set in.
While the last trailer was very exciting with the announcement of " Blue Marie," a popular character from the "FATAL FURY" series, SNK has announced that the release of KOF XV will be postponed.
The date has been changed to the first quarter of 2022.
SNK has announced that the release date of KOF XV will be changed from the end of 2021 to the first quarter of 2022.
The reason for the postponement is due to the prolonged spread of the new coronavirus in Japan, which has affected the development schedule.
It is unfortunate that you will not be able to play the game until later, but we can't help it! The health of our development team is the most important thing!
We expect the best from you, but please don't overdo it! We'll be waiting for you!

Comment from Mr. Yasuyuki Oda, Producer of KOF XV
We are pleased to announce that the release date of "KOF XV" will be changed to the first quarter of 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to customers who have been looking forward to its release.
In Japan, the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to affect our development schedule. We have decided to change the release date because we believe that further quality improvement is necessary to deliver a product that will satisfy our customers.
We would like to thank you for your understanding as we continue to develop the product for its release.
