SNK has added a new fighter to The King of Fighters 15, completely free of charge with Omega Rugal. As an alternate form for Rugal Bernstein, he debuted in The King of Fighters ’95 and immediately made a mark with his overpowered moveset.
Some of his moves include the ability to fire Energy Projectiles similar to Geese Howard; creating a shield that reflects projectiles; and using Orochi Power to slam an opponent with authority. Quick movement and an aura that grants a slashing ability to his strikes and kicks can also be expected. In addition to Omega Rugal, there’s a Boss Challenge mode where players can attempt to defeat the CPU playing as him.
Winning bestows a special costume for Rugal along with a new stage and music. The King of Fighters 15 is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC – check out our review here for more details. Nine more characters are planned for release this year with Team South Town being available in May for Team Pass 1 holders.
The free DLC character OMEGA RUGAL is now available!
OMEGA RUGAL, the most fearsome boss character from KOF '95, is back!
