Today SNK released a new trailer of its popular fighting game The King of Fighters XV, focusing on the next DLC character. 

We finally get to see Kim Kaphwan in action before he gets released as DLC this spring. On top of that, he will be playable at EVO Japan on April 2. The package will also include Kim's traditional costume as a bonus.

We also learn that at the same time as his release, the game will also get a new update 8 tracks from the credit rolls of previous SNK games will be added to the DJ Station feature. 

Kim Kaphwan is the second character releasing for the current Fighter Pass (the second) and will be followed by Sylvie Paula Paula and Najd in the summer of 2023 with two more unannounced characters coming in the fall and winter this year. Unlike Season 1, the second season focuses on single fighters and not teams.

You can watch the trailer below.

The King of Fighters XV is currently available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. If you're a fan of SNK's fighting game, the popular developer is currently developing a brand new Fatal Fury, also known as Garou Densetsu in Japan. At the moment, the game is mostly shrouded in mystery, but we may hear more at some point soon.
