Today SNK released a new trailer of its upcoming fighting game The King of Fighters XV, focusing on the post-launch DLC coming in 2022.
The first DLC will come in March, and it’ll be Team Garo, including Rock Howard, Gato, and B. Jenet.
The second DLC, which will complete the Team Pass 1, will come in May. Team South Town will bring back a bunch of villains with Geese Howard, Billy Kane, and Ryuji Yamazaki. Each DLC on its own is priced at 1,870 yen each, while the Team Pass is priced at 3,300 yen and included in the Deluxe Edition.
A second Team Pass will come this year starting in the summer with the third team of three characters, and ending in the fall with a second team of three, for a total of 12 DLC characters in a year. This means that by the end of 2022 we’ll have 51 characters in total in the game.
