SNK Corporation is announcing the availability of OMEGA RUGAL, a free DLC character for the fighting game phenomenon THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV.
The manifestation of SNK Boss Syndrome himself, OMEGA RUGAL is joining KOF XV. He appeared as an overwhelmingly strong boss character in THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’95 and has made his way into the current installment of the much-praised fighting game.
This dark arms merchant of death once ruled the world’s black market and was never shy about digging his fangs into any fighter that dared challenge him. Through the power of Orochi, he was given life once again, until a group of fierce fighters brought his reign to an end. Now, due to Verse’s influence, he’s returned to the mortal realm to exact vengeance. (CV: Tsuguo Mogami)
Alongside the launch of OMEGA RUGAL comes a new game mode called BOSS CHALLENGE. Players can take down the fearsome OMEGA RUGAL CPU and gain access to fun content like his special armour, a new stage, and new music.
13 DLC characters coming in 2022
Adding the currently available Team GAROU (3 characters), the release of OMEGA RUGAL, and the upcoming 3 teams (consisting of 3 characters each) launching this year – that makes for 13 DLC characters in total. Added to the launch roster of 39 characters, KOF XV will boast a massive 52 characters!
