SNK has his work cut out for him as he is currently developing a new Fatal Fury / Were as we learned last August, in addition to creating additional content for The King of Fighters XV. Indeed, a Season 2 is planned, the first having ended with the arrival of the Team Samurai beginning of October. Before ending the year, he has just made his plans for the start of 2023 clear through a video.
Thereby, the Season 2 of KOF XV will begin next January with the arrival of Shingo Yabukiof which we discover for the occasion the character design that he will wear in-game, you will have to come back to see it in action. That same month, a balancing update will be introduced. Next, in the spring of 2023, Kim Kaphwan will enter the ring and an open beta for the cross play will be launchedallowing PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Windows 10, Steam and Epic Games Store) to confront each other. Subsequently, more fighters will follow in DLCs.
Otherwise, Samurai Shodown is not forgotten, because he too will be entitled to from netcode rollback as already promised. Here again, an open beta will be organized. It will take place in January 2023, but only on Steam. However, network functionality is also planned for PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and for owners of the game via theEGS. The Switch is therefore sidelined, as is Stadia for obvious reasons since the service will close and the game will therefore no longer be playable there from January 18.
Whether The King of Fighters XV tempts you, it is currently sold from €19.99 on Amazon.
