EVO 2022 took place this weekend and it brought us some big announcements for fighting game fans, like the trailer for the next DLC team coming to The King of Fighters XV this year. The new DLC team will be the TEAM SAMURAI, which carries characters from SAMURAI SHODOWN to KOF.
SNK Corp announced that this fall will see the arrival of Haohmaru, Nakoruru, and Darli Dagger from SAMURAI SHODOWN in The King of Fighters XV as DLC. This team is the last one to arrive in the game as DLC this year and we can already see them in motion thanks to a new trailer.
Also: 6 features of Nissan e-power technology that explain how it works.
Although they are both SNK fighting series, the main difference between KOF and SAMSHO is that SAMURAI SHOWDOWN is a game focused on fighting with weapons, mainly swords, so it will be interesting to see how they adapt the movements of the characters to the gameplay of The king of Fighters.
Since its release The King of Fighters XV has received 7 DLC characters in total, consisting of Team Garou, Team South Town, and Rugal Omega, who arrived for free in April. However, since its launch it had been confirmed that The King of Fighters XV will feature another 6 DLC characters before the year is out.
At the end of June, the next DLC team to arrive at The King of Fighters XV was presented and it is Team Awakened Orochi, which introduces us to Orochi Shermie, Orochi Yashiro and Orochi Chris, the team that worked to revive Orochi in The King of Fighters ’97. During EVO 2022 it was announced that Team SAMURAI will be the last to arrive this year.
