The great animation of The King of Fighters XV reveals an enigmatic character
In the animation, lasting almost 2 minutes, the 39 fighters that will be part of the initial character roster of The King of Fighters XV can be seen, with their respective teams and sometimes executing their signature moves or attacks.
What is striking is that at the beginning of the video it is possible to see a mysterious character that has not been revealed so far and that has made fans think that he will not only play an important role in the Story mode, but that he will be the final boss himself.
In case you missed it: SNK sincerely asks its fans not to spoil the surprises of The King of Fighters XV.
