SNK has unveiled a new trailer for The King of Fighters 15 featuring new content reveals for the second season. It has been officially announced that Silvia Paula and Najd will be joining the game’s roster as DLC.
On top of the new fighters, the full first class of Season 2 has now been revealed. Shingo Yabuki’s gameplay and release date have been revealed, and SNK has shared an updated content roadmap for the upcoming season.
SNK has indicated that Shingo will be the first character in Season 2 to join The King of Fighters 15 when it launches on January 17. It will launch alongside a huge character balance update.
In the official gameplay trailer for it, Shingo can be seen running into his idol Kyo and chatting with him. His moveset in KOF15 features several flying kicks, big haymakers, and even a Kyo-like spinning top.
For the first time, SNK has also revealed how The King of Fighters 15’s Season 2 DLC will work. Instead of seeing three characters released at the same time as a team, the company will release six additional fighters all individually.
Shingo will start the season on January 17, Kim Kaphwan will join in Spring 2023, and Sylvie Paula Paula and Najd will follow in Summer 2023, though it looks like they may launch separately.
To round things up, another mystery character will see a fall 2023 release, and the final fighter from Season 2 will be released in Winter 2023.
