Developer and publisher SNK has announced that the reveal of King of Fighters XV and Samurai Shodown’s Season Pass 3 has been postponed, though a reason hasn’t been confirmed.
SNK had planned to officially unveil King of Fighter XV this week. The reveal of the latest entry in the King of Fighters series was to be followed by an announcement of the new characters coming to Samurai Shodown as part of the game’s Season Pass 3 bundle. However, the company said it will “inform our fans as soon as the new date and time has been confirmed.”
King of Fighters XV was teased in December, with SNK calling it the “most ambitious KOF yet.” The studio shared no gameplay at the time. King of Fighters creative director Eisuke Ogura revealed King of Fighters XIV newcomer Shun’ei is the franchise’s latest protagonist. As such, Shun’ei has a new outfit (shown off in some concept art), as well as an overhauled moveset.
In other Samurai Shodown news, SNK plans to introduce a few brand-new characters with the Season Pass 3 package. This includes the previously teased guest character from the company’s Neo Geo classic fighter The Last Blade and some unannounced others. Fans interested in playing a bunch of retro SNK games can also pick up the Neo Geo MVSX home arcade system from Amazon, a cabinet that comes preloaded with 50 classic Neo Geo titles.
