The King of Fighters XV features vibrant graphics that allow the team to be a bit more playful with the roster and telegraph movesets easier, which is needed for such a technical fighting game as this.

SNK has hyped up this game’s release with several character reveals and trailers showcasing their varied movesets, aesthetics, and music. It is clear that the team is dedicating all their workforce to making this fighter as qualitative as possible, even post-release with all of the DLC.
