When SNK, the developer and publisher of The King of Fighters 15, said that the new entry in the long-running fighting game series will “shatter all expectations”, they did not take those statements lightly. The developers have now announced the addition of a new upcoming character to the roster right after releasing Team Garou last week, with many more to come.
SNK announced that on April 14th, the game will be getting its next character update, with Omega Rugal joining the roster. The character was first introduced in the King of Fighters ’95 as a boss character and was last seen in The King of Fighters 2002 UM. Most of his moveset from The King of Fighters 2002 UM is making a comeback, and as per the video, he seems to have some flashy moves to dominate his opponents.
Additionally, the game will be receiving a “Boss Challenge” mode, where players can challenge Omega Rugal, who will be controlled by the CPU, in a fight and try to defeat him using their skills. Doing so successfully will give players access to his special costume, a new stage, and new music. The character and game mode will be completely free for everyone.
The King of Fighters 15 is currently available to play on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
