Since its debut in 1994, the KOF fighting game series has been driving the world to the excitement with its impressive characters and unique game system. Six years have passed since the last title in the series, and now THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV has challenged all of its predecessors, with jaw-dropping graphics, systems, and an improved online experience.

The latest installment in the King of Fighters saga continues from the previous title’s Story Mode. Heroes from the Orochi, NESTS and Ash Sagas have all joined KOF XV, and this time, the story is coming to an explosive climax.

Rollback netcode has been adopted to reduce lag in online matches, allowing for smoother online play. THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV features a wide variety of online features including RANKED MATCH, CASUAL MATCH, ROOM MATCH, and ONLINE TRAINING. There’s also the new DRAFT VS mode, which pits you against an opponent as you try to nab your favourite character before they can. KOF XV features cross-play on Sony consoles so PlayStation4 and PlayStation5 owners can join explosive online matches against each other.

The gallery features not only character voices and KOF XV in-game cinematics, but also a special animated short directed by world-renowned artist Masami Obari. Additionally, the new DJ STATION features over 300 popular songs throughout the entire KOF series. Players can even customize their fights to have their favourite tracks play in the background.
