The King of Fighters 15 - Rock Howard

SNK’s The King of Fighters 15 has been out on PC and consoles for a while, and while the game has had a stellar lineup of fighters at launch, which plenty of people have been enjoying, it seems the developers are not yet done with expanding it. As previously confirmed, SNK has added its first DLC characters to the game with its newest patch.

The new update adds Team Garou into the game, which lets you play as Blue Jenet, Rock Howard, and Gato. Additionally, the new patch adds in general bug fixes for the game, such as fixes for crashes, disconnections, and more. Character-specific fixes for characters such as Dolores, Vanessa, Ash Crimson, and a few more have also been made, so players using these characters can expect some changes in the way they play.

The patch notes for the update can be read below for more details on the various tweaks that SNK has made to The King of Fighters 15. The game is available currently on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and the patch is live across all platforms.
