The King of Fighters 15

SNK is adding new DLC characters to The King of Fighters 15, starting with Shingo Yabuki on January 20th. Before that, a new patch is live with several balance adjustments. It aims to improve the performance of lesser-used characters and nerf the stronger fighters and moves. However, it contains adjustments that apply to the entire roster.

In terms of features, players can now change Battle Settings in the rooms before confirming the fight. Member Selection has a renewed design, and the KOF Staff Roll BGM Collection jacket is available in DJ Station.

The Power gauge now accumulates during MAX Mode and dashing no longer causes the character’s head to move forward. A bug that caused fighters to guard after stopping from a dash has also been resolved. Counter Throws are no longer usable during regular attacks, blowback recovery and command moves. The distance between characters following a counter throw is the same for everyone.

For more details, check out some of the patch notes below. You can learn more about individual fighting adjustments here.
