SNK has announced that King of Fighters XV will be receiving Omega Rugal, the oft-banned, controller-breaker himself, as a free character next month. He joins the cast not as a Team member like the Season Pass characters, but as a free solo character.
As you can see in the trailer below, Rugal is back in all his infuriating glory. As of April 14th, players will be able to download Omega Rugal for free, alongside the new game mode, Boss Challenge. This mode has players battle a CPU Rugal that takes no prisoners, as even the trailer references Rugal’s long-standing reputation as a nigh unbeatable boss.
If you haven’t played King of Fighters XV yet, check out our video review below, as well as our full written review, where we say: “The King of Fighters XV is as good as it gets and feels like a complete package even at launch. Sure, it may not reinvent the wheel for the genre, but it perfects its unique gameplay formula and easily offers the best character roster the series has ever seen. With robust online options, deep gameplay systems, and stellar and stylistic presentation featuring unforgettable music, this is one fighting game that will be in regular rotation on any gaming platform.”
