Today SNK released a new trailer and screenshots showcasing another fighter that will be playable in its upcoming fighting game The King of Fighters XV.
This time around, we get to see the return of another fan-favorite, Leona Heidern. She certainly doesn’t appear to have lost her touch.
You can check out the trailer below alongside a gallery of dedicated screenshots from the press release.
If you’re not familiar with Leona, here’s an official description. Do keep in mind that the dedicated press releases include background from The King of Fighters XIV until a character’s team is revealed, and we don’t yet know who Leona will team with.
“Leona belongs to a mercenary corps. As the adopted daughter of Heidern, she has received military training from a young age. The Orochi blood flowing within her veins led to an awakening of power. Although taciturn and poor at expressing emotion, both Ralf and Clark have occasionally seen her smile and cry.”
The King of Fighters XV is slated for release in 2021, but we don’t yet know which platforms it will support.
If you want to see more, you can check out the first trailer, the first gallery of screenshots, and the trailers that revealed Shun’ei, Meitenkun, Benimaru Nikaido, Iori Yagami, Yashiro Nanakase, Joe Higashi, Kyo Kusanagi, Chizuru Kagura, Andy Bogard, Yuri Sakazaki, Terry Bogard, King, Mai Shiranui, Shermie, Chris, and the duo Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia.
We also know that an animated short by Masami Obari is going to be published down the line to promote the game. That being said, we don’t know when it’s coming just yet.
